Hadi a 'key amplifier' of race based narratives, research finds

PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang has been identified as one of the "key amplifiers" of inflammatory language during the ongoing election campaign.

According to the preliminary findings of a social media monitoring initiative led by the Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ), Hadi was described as amplifying "divisive, racist, intolerant, and hate-based narratives".

CIJ also identified Sik PAS Youth chief Shahiful Nasir, singer Jamal Abdillah, and actor Zul Huzaimy as creating "fear-triggering Muslim voters".

"Hadi and PAS have also resorted to 'red-tagging' in recent weeks, with the continued accusation of DAP being communist as they are allegedly atheist and promote LGBTIQ practices," said CIJ.
