And Set up new Islamic-based party - Nik Aziz.
How about it, Mr Badawi? The Tok Guru has offered to dissolve PAS if unity is really what you want. Are you willing to dissolve Umno and form a new party based on Islam?
And the PAS adviser does not mean "Islam Hadhari".

PAS Invites Umno To Set Up New Islam-based Party To Unite Malays
MACHANG, July 26 (Bernama) -- PAS Spiritual Leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat Saturday proposed the dissolution of both PAS and Umno and the setting up of a new Islam-based political party to unite the Malays and enable Islam to be the protective umbrella for all the people, including non-Muslims.
He said Islam fulfilled the objectives of all endeavours, including political struggle, and should form the basis of political parties seeking to uphold the true political struggle.
"Umno should dissolve, PAS should also dissolve. Set up another party on condition that it is based on Islam," he told reporters after opening the 37th "Muktamar" (meeting) of Kelantan PAS "Dewan Ulama" (Assembly of Muslim Scholars), here.
Nik Abdul Aziz, who is the Kelantan menteri besar, said there was no reason for Umno to reject the Islamic policies proposed by PAS because Islam stood for all the communities, including the non-Malays, in the country.
"Islam is for all the communities, not just the Malays ... the Chinese, Indians and Orang Putih (westerners) ... they have to be united under the umbrella of Islam," he said.
Islam would thus be able to regain strength in the country while forging closer links among the communities, including non-Muslims, he said.
