In a statement Monday, he said the time was right for both sides of the political divide to stop the passing of the Private Member's Bill to amend the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act that was tabled by PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang in Parliament recently.
Chai also blamed DAP national organising secretary Anthony Loke for "dismissing the hudud crisis as scare tactics".
"He (Loke) should apologise to the Chinese community if he is still conscientious, and also join MCA's effort in opposing hudud enactments from being implemented in the country," added Chai.
He, however, said Loke chose to make use of this issue to "attack MCA and weaken the party".
"Does DAP wish to see hudud materialised and implemented in the country?
"We cannot do anything if DAP chooses to wash its hands off and refuse to stand up against PAS' hudud enactments.
"But DAP should stop smearing and insulting MCA, as well as making false claims to weaken the political strengths of MCA and other Barisan Nasional component parties," said Chai.
He added that in the past, DAP had campaigned on behalf of PAS during the previous general election.
He said it was only now that DAP wanted to stay out of the mess it created by severing ties with PAS.
'It is too late for DAP to curb PAS' growing influence, and the party should be held responsible for the hudud crisis," Chai added.

He added that it will be interesting to see whether PKR will help PAS or splinter party Amanah in the upcoming campaigns, or indeed submit a candidate itself.
"I cannot answer which party PKR will help during the campaign period and whether PKR will help PAS or Amanah remains to be seen," he said.
Speaking to reporters after handing over house keys to the owners of a newly completed 42 units of double storey terrace houses built by Profil Impian Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of the Kelantan State Economic Development Corporation at Pengkalan Chepa on Monday.
He was asked to comment on newspaper reports that PKR was now in a bind over which party to support.
The Deputy Mentri Besar said whatever happens PAS is ready.
"We will wait and see whatever happens next, and I believe that PAS is ready for any situation including going it alone," he added.
