Pas holds its 55th general assembly this week.
The party is now at a crossroads. As it aspires for federal leadership together with its Pakatan allies, Pas will have to decide and discern which direction it should take: towards a more inclusive and democratic Malaysia or towards a conservative theology that will alienate it from non-Muslims.
Aliran member Farish Noor looks at what is at stake, ahead of the assembly here.
