Malaysian Islamic Party denies Saudi ban on its leader amidst accusations of ‘extreme ideology’ and ties to IUMS

Malaysia’s PAS party denies the authenticity of a viral statement claiming its president, Abdul Hadi Awang, is banned from Saudi Arabia.

PAS cites discrepancies in the statement and clarifies his non-affiliation with IUMS. The accusations of supporting “extreme ideology” and Shiah denomination have surfaced before, linked to IUMS’s terrorist listing in 2017.
