Mahfuz omar di halau huru harakan dewan

Dato' Haji Mahfuz bin Haji Omar (born 25 August 1957) is a Malaysian politician and is the Member of the Parliament of Malaysia for the Pokok Sena constituency in the state of Kedah, Malaysia. He is a member of the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS).


Mahfuz was the head of PAS's youth wing from 1999 to 2003. Under his leadership, PAS Youth was a progressive voice within PAS, advocating for the party to join the Barisan Alternatif coalition with the Democratic Action Party (DAP) and the People's Justice Party (PKR). Mahfuz's leadership of PAS was the culmination of a long period of his activism within the party. He and a group of other PAS politicians were detained under the Internal Security Act in 1985, a period of intense and often violent hostility between PAS and the governing United Malays National Organisation (UMNO). He was briefly jailed again in 2000 for participating in an unauthorised protest rally against an Israeli cricket team visiting Malaysia.
