Corruption is bad for society, but is it defined by race, ethnicity and religion?
PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang said non-Muslims and non-Bumiputeras are the majority who embrace corruption.
As a result, they destroy the country’s politics and economy, MP Marang said.
He also compared the fight against corruption to efforts to prevent dengue.
ELIMINATE MYTHIC DEBT
The practice of corruption is an evil that makes a person a great sinner, whether he is a giver, receiver or intermediary involved in the practice of corruption.

He said preventing dengue is not just about treating patients and killing mosquitoes.
It also requires action against water bodies that breed mosquitoes and people who do not maintain hygiene.
It is the same with efforts to deal with the disease of corruption, it must be done holistically. In particular, against those who cause corruption in the pursuit of illegal wealth.
PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang on rooting corruption.
He said the same group of people also controls the country’s economy and uses it to destroy politics, administrative affairs and the judiciary.
Corruption from an Islamic point of view
Abdul Hadi added that certain people were “punished by the media” before being proven in court.
He also criticized certain parties who were made scapegoats after acting as proxies for certain “crooks”.
This is not the first time that Hadi has spoken about corruption.
In 2021, he said that the definition of corruption must be studied from a valid Islamic point of view.
He said donations to the needy, not for personal purposes, individuals or the general public, should not be seen as corruption.
I haven’t read the latest post from the president’s mind yet. This corruption is done by non-Bumi, if Najib considers it donation.

Hadi’s remark drew the ire of many who chided him for using race and religion to gain support.
They said corruption is a widespread problem that knows no boundaries, regardless of race and religion.
Hadi got the half right, the Muslim Malays accepting bribes and complicity is the other half, he didn’t mention it because he is an unprincipled politician with the truth

Netizens said his remarks were puzzling because Muslim Malays are the most serious corruption offenders facing the law in the country.
They told Hadi to instead offer practical ideas, guidelines and frameworks for a serious solution. They believe that he should perform severe soul-searching and self-introspection for himself.
Najib is a Muslim and has been found guilty of corruption, Zahid is a Muslim and I am facing corruption charges, the list goes on, the facts speak for themselves. Hadi is in denial, blaming others, while the biggest crooks are his colleagues. https://t.co/CqXWzVbeMV

Some have pointed out that the perception of corruption has worsened since PAS became part of the federal government.
PAS leaders are also criticized as being too arrogant and often make statements insulting Malaysians of different ethnicities and religions.
6. Instead of blaming a race, it is better for Hadi to answer first; why has the position of Malaysia’s corruption perception index worsened when PAS itself is in government since 2020?
