Mat Sabu criticizes PAS for hypocrisy while calling Guan Eng as Tabung Haji saviour

Lim Guan Eng, the DAP secretary-general, was the hero who defended Tabung Haji for the greater benefit of Malaysia, according to Parti Amanah Negara president Mohamad Sabu.

The former defense minister, popularly known as Mat Sabu, said that it was Lim who persuaded the Pakatan Harapan (PH) Cabinet in 2019 to “rescue” the Muslim pilgrims’ fund, which had assets worth more than RM80 billion, as reported by news site Malaysia Dateline.

The If he does not intervene to preserve Tabung Haji, Malaysia’s ranking would deteriorate. That is why he fought for the preservation of the Muslim body.

The Kota Raja MP said during the hour-long programme titled “Santai Bersama Presiden Amanah” that it is for this reason that the Cabinet chose to rescue Tabung Haji and invest many billions into it at the time.

Mohamad pointed out that Lim was finance minister at the time and was under pressure from UMNO and PAS critics who accused the DAP leader and the PH administration of selling Tabung Haji to China.

According to the Amanah leader, numerous “ustaz” in UMNO and PAS would persistently make unsubstantiated allegations about Tabung Haji and “attack” Lim, the DAP, and PH during the Cameron Highlands, Semenyih, and Tanjung Piai by-election campaigns, claiming the government has sold out to China, the DAP now controls the government, and Islam is under threat.
