Non Muslim Kelantan Chinese PAS Supporters Honored
The recently concluded 53rd Muktamar of PAS @ Islamic Party of Malaysia, held in Kota Bharu , State of Kelantan had a special guest speaker addressing the 1,125 delegates from all over the nation.
The Chairman of the Chinese Community Supporters of PAS Club , Mr. Hu Pang Chaw was given the honor of speaking to the largest gathering of PAS leaders in the heart of the only Opposition run state in Malaysia.
He expressed his gratitude to PAS for giving the club members the platform to engage with the PAS leadership in matters concerning the Chinese community and for working together with them in holding various activities for the Chinese in Kelantan.
PAS through it's Social Unity Unit has held many events such as taking part in the Moon Cake Festivities, Dinners and Dialogues with the Chinese community in Kelantan.

Mr.Hu asked PAS leaders to be more proactive in reaching out to the Chinese community throughout the nation as the main media has been portraying a wrong image of PAS to the people all these while and he promised to do more on his part to share the actual situation with PAS to the Chinese in the state and throughout the nation.
Mr.Hu Pang Chaw, an ex journalist with a Chinese daily in Kota Bharu has published a local Chinese newspaper called Re Min Shi Shi which from an initial 5,000 copy print out has now increased to more than 50,000 copies daily distribution.
This goes to show Chinese in Malaysia not to just believe in all the media hype about PAS being an ultra this or that party.
PAS stands for a fair just government that gives everyone their share of progress and mutual prosperity.
The Chinese in Kelantan find doing business there much more easier because there isn't much of a corruption problem in the state.
From the looks of things, PAS is finding support from the most unexpected sources as the GE looms around the corner.
The BN will naturally go all out to see to it that PAS doesn't get an easy win with this new growing support coming from the Chinese and Indian Malaysians.
PAS needs to capitalize on this healthy trend by doing more for all Malaysians. Insya Allah.
