FIFTY Pas members and supporters gathered at the Gurun mosque here yesterday urging DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng to apologise to Muslims in the country for proposing the word "Allah" to be used in the Malay version of the Bible.
The group also wanted to know Pakatan Rakyat presidential council's stand on the issue.
A member of the group, Mohamad Khalid Abd Hamid, said: "As far as we are concerned, DAP has rejected Islamic principles a long time ago.
"I remember how DAP chairman Karpal Singh had made a big fuss over Pas' intention to implement hudud if Pakatan Rakyat takes over Putrajaya."
Khalid, 34, who had been the Youth chief of the Pas Pengkalan Bujang branch for 12 years, later announced he was quitting the party as he was frustrated with Pakatan's inconsistent stand on the use of the word "Allah".
He also accused Pas of deviating from its struggles when it compromised its principles to please the DAP and Parti Keadilan Rakyat over the issue.
"Pas has deviated from its struggles as the party is more obsessed with pleasing the DAP and PKR rather than upholding the sanctity of Islam.
"Its flip-flopping stand on the use of the word 'Allah' is proof of this."
