Following the public apology published by Nanyang Siang Pau and an apology letter sent to PAS over the cartoon on RUU355, PAS president Datuk Seri Hadi Awang urges Muslims throughout the country to forgive the newspaper like him.
In a statement issued, Hadi said the newspaper has published an apology. And PAS has also received an apology letter from the Editor-in-chief of Nanyang Siang Pau on 12 April and has accepted the apology and forgive the newspaper.
He urges Muslims who are hurt by the cartoon to forgive the newspaper like he does. He also hope Nanyang Siang Pau does not make the mistake again.
He is of the view that Nanyang Siang Pau published the cartoon as it did not understand the scope of religious sensitivity, thus made the mistake.
“After the apology, all of us should continue to establish mutual understanding among all ethnic groups to live in harmony.”
