ALOR STAR: Kedah Pas has asked members and supporters of the party to remain calm and not be influenced by emotions following a report that caretaker menteri besar Datuk Seri Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor will be charged in court tomorrow.
State Pas commissioner Datuk Ahmad Yahaya said everyone must always obey the law and pray for Sanusi.

"In such situation, Kedah Pas will continue to extend prayers for Sanusi to be under the protection of Allah.
