PAS wants SIS to be banned, accusing it of carrying out activities that were found to be contrary to Islamic teachings and principles.
The party alleged that the group’s activities were “dangerous” that could cause confusion among Muslims.Last Sunday, PAS, at the closing of its muktamar, urged that SIS be investigated by the National Fatwa Council.
The party said SIS should be declared "haram" if these "liberal elements" in SIS were found to be against the teachings of Islam.
Pas has also called for a rehabilitation programme for its members.
SIS programme manager Norhayati Kaprawi has lambasted the party for adopting what she dscribed as "scare tactics".
"This smacks of a vigilante mindset and approach," she said.
SIS has got several high-profile women, among others, on its side -- Pas' Dr Lo'Lo' Mohd Ghazali, DAP's Teresa Kok and Wanita Umno's Shahrizat Abdul Jalil.
I think PAS stand smacks of prejudice. It also shows how intolerant the party is of others who may not be singing the same tune.
It's akin to saying that SIS has strayed from Islam.
That is a terribly serious accusation.
On what basis is PAS making that allegation?
It's not good enough to be making such an accusation and then ask another body to investigate.
