Moral Leadership Or Grasping Greed?

Newly-appointed Environment Minister Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man today has defended logging activities in Kelantan.

The PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, who clocked in at Putrajaya for the first day of his job, was asked to respond to criticisms on logging activities in PAS-led Kelantan.

“If you look at Kelantan, it has ISO certification, compared to other states that do not have any.

“It (criticism) is partly due to sentiment from the opposition,” he said.

Kelantan state government was heavily criticised in the past for allowing logging activities which cause Orang Asli community in Gua Musang to lose their forest reserve area.

Our comment

Out of all the portfolios PAS would want to leverage, is anyone surprised they went for the Environment? Pooh to moral guidance!

There are quick bucks to be made for cronies by wiping out what is left of God’s gifts on earth and these ‘religious’ folk want to make those bucks and direct the proceeds into their party pockets.

As the ringgit plunges in response to economic dismay at this backwards coup they will, of course, have to cut down far more trees than before to buy their coveted Mercs, Swiss watches, foreign medical treatment and all the rest.

Meanwhile, those indigenous people who have lived in harmony for centuries, along with the unparalleled animals and plants which the previous government was trying to save for future generations, are nothing to these purveyors of ‘religion’ in return for riches.

They will be left to perish.
