PUTRAJAYA: The Home Ministry has confirmed Mohamad Sabu as the PAS leader that has links with Shi'ite teachings.

Ministry secretary-general Datuk Seri Abdul Rahim Radzi said this was based on information linking the PAS deputy president to the sect.


He said the information included that Mohamad had recited the "Selawat" (praises to the Prophet Muhamad) using the Shi'ite followers' version.


"He had also on several occasions expressed his admiration towards Khomeini leadership and struggle," he told a press conference here on Thursday.


Abdul Rahim said the police together with Jakim would continue their cooperation to curb the Shi'ite activities.

According to a news report, Mohammad said he denies that he is a Shi'ite follower. "Definitely I admire Kohmeini's leadership because he is a leader who has has brought Muslims to be independent and I also admire Hassan Nasrullah," he said.
