Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Dr Mujahid Yusof said there is no need to associate controversial Muslim preacher Dr Zakir Naik with the arrests of several individuals, including two state DAP Excos, for their alleged involvement in the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

“I don’t know why Dr Zakir’s name is dragged into this issue,” he told a press conference after attending the Negri Sembilan Maqasid Syariah Town Hall Session here, today.

Yesterday, Penang Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy had proposed the tabling of white papers on Dr Zakir in Parliament, following a Pas proposal for a similar action on LTTE.


SEREMBAN: There is no need to associate controversial Muslim preacher Dr Zakir Naik with the arrests of several individuals, including two state DAP Excos, for their alleged involvement in the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

The debate competition had stirred up a storm of protest among people, with reportedly controversial topics such as the justification for homosexuality, rejection of the shariah legal system and reinterpretation of the Quran in this year’s competition.

“The organiser should choose other topics. It is not suitable especially in (accordance to) Islamic teaching,” he said.
