Take a look in the mirror, PAS tells Dr M

PETALING JAYA: PAS has always been consistent in its fight against Umno and Barisan Nasional, unlike Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who has done numerous "U-turns", says Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man (pic).
In what appeared to be an open letter to the former premier, the PAS deputy president said the Islamist party has viewed Umno as its enemy for decades, even during Dr Mahathir's tenure.
"Even during your era, Umno had been stealing from the people but you never realised this.
"Those who spoke out against you had to face the Internal Security Act, which was used by you in vain.
"Even until today, the people are still fighting against the system that was left by you, including yourself," he said in a statement on Tuesday.
Tuan Ibrahim said Barisan remained in power because of Dr Mahathir's unjust electoral system.
"Umno today is the result of your own doing," he said.
He said none of this would have happened if the veteran statesman had not sacked his deputy and former nemesis, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, from the Cabinet.
"Only now you realise how difficult it is to fight as the Opposition.
"You have now agreed to Anwar becoming the eighth prime minister. Wouldn't it be better if you had realised this 20 years ago?" he said.
Tuan Ibrahim said PAS would not be shaken by attacks thrown at it by Dr Mahathir, who is the chairman of Pakatan Harapan.
"You have accused PAS of supporting Umno because we did not want to be part of Pakatan.
"There were slander, attacks and accusations thrown at us. It now appears we have an additional enemy besides Umno.
"But we will not be shaken. These attacks show that you are panicking over all the support we are getting," he said.
He said PAS will continue to fight against Umno as in previous elections and the decision to contest in seats and create three-cornered fights is theirs.
"PAS has always placed Islam as its utmost priority ... if you want to accuse PAS of being a spoiler, look at yourself in the mirror first and see who has been consistent and who has been making U-turns," he said.
