Remember this entry? Hair Policy in Kelantan.
I bought The Star today and I am very impressed with PAS where they are willing to cooperate and wants to discuss about hair policy matter that has been brought up by the hair salon operators.

PAS appears to soften stance
Nik Aziz admits 'oversight' in gender policy on hair-cutting.
Kota Bharu: After several days of public outcry over the Kota Bharu Municipal Council's gender policy on hair-cutting, the Kelantan Government appears to have softened its stand on the issue.
Menteri Besar Kelantan, Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat said he will bring this matter (hair policy) up at the state exco meeting to be confirmed before making any official stand on the issue. He also said that Syariah-based laws must be up-hold and we must practise the Syariah-based laws. "Islam allows the non-Muslims to practise their culture, as long as it is not in violation of the (Islamic) religion," he added.
"PAS is committed to solving any problems through discussions," he said.
If I may, I would love to translate the article above. Thank you.
Sifat tolak ansur PAS terserlah.
Nik Aziz mengakui terlepas pandang akan polisi pengasingan jantina dalam perkhidmatan gunting rambut.
Kota Bharu: Kerajaan Kelatan menunjukkan sifat bertolak ansur selepas beberapa hari bantahan pihak awam mengenai polisi pengasingan jantina dalam perkhidmatan gunting rambut oleh Majlis Perbandaran Kota Bharu.
Menteri Besar Kelantan, Tuan Guru Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat berkata "saya akan membawa hal ini di mesyuarat exco untuk dipastikan sebelum membuat apa-apa pernyataan rasmi mengenai isu ini". Tok Guru juga berkata bahawa Undang-undang Syariah Islam perlu diutamakan dan diamalkan, namun, Islam membenarkan orang bukan Islam mengamalkan agama mereka selagi mana ia tidak bertentangan dengan agama Islam.
"PAS bersedia untuk berbincangan dengan mana-mana pihak dalam menyelesaikan permasalahan dengan menggunakan jalan perbincangan (halaqah)," kata Tok Guru lagi.
But then, there is another article that really catches my eye. It was an article and the article was about the opinions from the MCA Young Professionals Bureu's chairman, Datuk Chua Tee Yong. The sub-headline of the article was,
Chua : Right of non-Muslims violated, yet DAP keeping mum.
I personally believed that this article was political-based comments. We could see that PAS is already want to cooperate and they want to discuss about this matter yet, there are comments and voices trying to ruin the discussion. The heck? As I said before, was is wrong is wrong and what is right, is right. In this very case, that comment from Chua is the wrong doing. He should not say like that but then, because of different political views, he said it. And to me, that is totally wrong. Sorry.
p/s: they will find the solution, as long as no political thinking people take over.
