MIC president S Subramaniam said he hoped BN would "adhere to" the agreement made during the discussion among BN parties over amendments to Act 355 listed to be tabled this week in Parliament.
"We have discussed the matter within BN and I hope whatever has been discussed in BN will be followed through.
"BN has discussed and agreed on how we will deal with the matter and what will be done.
"That's all I have to comment," he said briefly during a press conference after officiating MIC's 70th annual general meeting today.
While several BN leaders have publicly said BN had arrived at some consensus on how to deal with PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang's Private Member's Bill, none have actually disclosed what that consensus is.
The dilemma that BN faces how the coalition as a bloc would vote should the bill make it into the House.
Non-Muslim component parties are dead set against passing the amendments, but Umno has been evasive about its position.
Ironically, it was Prime Minister Najib Razak whom Prime Minister's Department Azalina Othman Said revealed had ordered Hadi's motion to be fast tracked in the last parliamentary sitting.
In the initial stages, Putrajaya also set up a joint technical committee with PAS to study the implementation of hudud in their eastern state.
Last obstacle to hudud
The amendments to the Act will remove the final obstacle for hudud to be implemented in Kelantan, after the Islamic penal code was unanimously passed at state level last year, with a majority of PAS and Umno assemblypersons and PKR's sole state representative.
Hadi last March admitted his bill was a move to implement hudud, although his recent statements tended to avoid mention of the controversial Islamic punishments.
In his speech at the Federal Territories PAS convention in Taman Melewar at the time, Hadi was reported as saying, “We want to test Muslims so that they understand and support this bill to allow Kelantan to implement hudud.” -Mkini
