KUALA LUMPUR – PAS has given its blessings to the party President, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, to attend the Malay Pride Congress which will take place at the Malawati Indoor Stadium in Shah Alam this Sunday.

According to its Secretary-General Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan, the blessing was given as a sign PAS’s openness in strengthening the union of ummah (Muslim community) and nation in the country.

Today, UMNO is expected to announced its decision to attend the congress organised by the University of Malaya and several other higher learning institutions in the country.

The President of UMNO, Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is expected to state the position of the party after chairing the UMNO Supreme Council meeting this evening.

According to a source, the secretariat has invited the Presidents of PAS and UMNO to join the congress and it was said that they have obtained the greenlight.

Yesterday, the Chief Executive of the Secretariat of Malay Pride Congress, Emeritus Professor Datuk Dr. Zainal Kling confirmed that Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has been invited as the honorary guest of the event at the capacity of a Malay leader.

Three local universities namely, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), Sultan Idris Education University (UPSI) and Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) will also be taking part in the congress.

The congress targets up to 20,000 Malay participants regardless of their political stands.

It comes after the Himpunan Perpaduan Ummah assembly which witnessed PAS and UMNO shared a stage and signed the National Cooperation Charter. -MalaysiaGazette
