KUALA KANGSAR: PAS’ candidate for the by-election, Dr Najihatussalehah Ahmad, has slammed independent candidate Izat Bukhary Ismail Bukhary over his statement that according to the Hadith women are not allowed to lead.
Speaking to reporters after observing the early voting process at Dewan Tun Salleh at the Kuala Kangsar police puarters, Dr Najihatussalehah said Izat Bukhary’s views were narrow minded. She also used Prophet Muhammad’s wife Siti Aishah as an example to illustrate her point.
“She was hailed as an educator to the community after the passing of Prophet Muhammad
“She was the reference point for many ulamaks too. She spread lots of teachings. The women are far ahead and his (Izat Bukhary) thoughts are just shallow,” Dr Najihatussalehah said.
She was about Izat Bukhary distributing pamphlets claiming that women can’t lead according to the Hadith.
During nomination, the former lecturer caused a stir when he declared that he was running because Kuala Kangsar should not have a female Member of Parliament.
