Five-point formula proposed by the DAP to resolve the Islamic State controversy:-
1. That the 1999 BA Manifesto “Towards A Just Malaysia”, while respecting the different ideological positions of component parties, binds every party during the duration of the BA to a commitment to uphold and respect the fundamental principles and basic structures of the Malaysian Constitution  an assurance that there would be no radical change to the Constitution such as for the establishment of an Islamic, Buddhist or Christian state. Any effort by any component party to pursue the establishment of an Islamic, Buddhist or Christian state will be against the BA Manifesto.

2. A clear reiteration that under the BA Manifesto, a vote for BA is a vote for democracy, justice and good governance and not a vote for an Islamic State  and PAS agrees that in the duration of the BA, PAS would at all levels of the party join forces with other BA parties to strive for A Just Malaysia and not for an Islamic State

3. BA Council to be given prior notice of any proposed enactment or measure in the Kelantan and Terengganu state governments which could impinge on the sensitivities of the different religions, communities and political parties to allow for fullest consultation and agreement.

4. A special BA committee to be set up to ensure that controversial or sensitive religious pronouncements or statement against the BA manifesto are only made after prior consultation and to deal with cases of infraction.

5. Although PAS is committed to the objective of an Islamic State,  it accepts the fact that in a plural society like Malaysia, the establishment of an Islamic State is not suitable  or practicable.
