SEPANG: The Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) will begin arresting those who carry out rituals that contravene the teachings of Islam should the latter refused to disperse at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
Sepang district enforcement chief of the department, Zaifullah Jaafar Shidek said the monitoring was done due to several individuals performing rituals, "praying" the safe return of the missing MH370.
"Anything that is against syariah principles and fatwa will be asked to disperse and if they refused, we will arrest them," he said on Thursday.
He added that seven officers from the department have been sent to monitor the airport.
"This is to avoid people from becoming syirik (deviant)," he said.
Anything that is against syariah principles and fatwa will be asked to disperse and if they refused, we will arrest them under Section 7 of the Syariah Criminal Offences Enactment (Selangor) 1995 for false doctrine," he said.
The officers, who arrived at 10.30am immediately, began monitoring the area upon arrival.
MAS Flight MH370, carrying 227 passengers, including two infants, and 12 crew, went missing en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing about an hour after taking off from the KL International Airport at 12.41am Saturday. It should have landed in Beijing at 6.30am but is still missing without any trace till now.
