Extract from “Mahfuz wants fatwa declaring TPPA ‘haram’”

The National Fatwa Council must stop the government from signing the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) by declaring it “haram”.

In a statement, Pokok Sena MP Mahfuz Omar of PAS said the council must state its stand on the TPPA, which he claimed would see the Umno-Barisan Nasional government selling the country to neo-colonialists, represented by the United States.

“[…] this responsibility falls on the National Fatwa Council to stand with the people against this threat of neo-colonialism.”
