NIK AZIZ: ISA is wrong in Islam
KOTA BARU: Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat said yesterday he hoped that Parti Keadilan Rakyat adviser Da-tuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim would not be detained under the Internal Security Act.
The Pas spiritual leader said this after meeting Terengganu Pas commissioner Datuk Mus-tafa Ali yesterday.
Nik Aziz said the government should consider the wishes of the public, especially with the resignation of de facto law minister Datuk Zaid Ibra-him, who spoke out against recent ISA arrests.
"The ISA does not give the accused a chance to defend himself. This is wrong as in Islam, the accused is allowed to defend himself."
Nik Aziz, who was upset by the statement, had criticised Mustafa in the party's organ, Harakah.
