PETALING JAYA: The woman who made a controversial video celebrating Hari Raya with her pet dogs has been arrested by the police and is being held in Bukit Aman.
Her lawyer Latheefa Koya said that Maznah Mohd Yusof, 38, was being investigated under section 298A of the Penal Code which deals with causing disharmony on grounds of religion.
Latheefa, however, said she did not know what offence Maznah, who is a dog trainer, actually committed.
She was also unsure how long Maznah would remain in custody.
“I hope to see her before they take any statements from her,” she said.
Calls to Maznah by the Star Online went unanswered.
Maznah, who is also known as Chetz, is in the middle of an social media storm after a video of her spending her Hari Raya with her dogs three years ago was uploaded on YouTube on Monday.
The 104-second clip, entitled 'Video Menghina Islam 1 Hari di Hari Raya' shows Chetz walking her three dogs with the Takbir Raya (a special prayer recited during the first day of Hari Raya) playing in the background.
She is also seen washing their paws and feeding them kuih raya (raya cookies).
The video has been viewed more than 52,000 times so far until 6pm today.
It also received many comments from YouTube users who blasted her for the video.
