Mufti removes controversial Facebook post

PETALING JAYA: A poem criticising “cow worshippers” written by Perlis Mufti Datuk Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin has been taken down from his Facebook page.

A check by The Star showed that the poem posted on Friday was no longer on the Facebook page yesterday.

The initial post by Dr Asri in the form of a poem criticising religious practices of the Hindus appeared to be his attempt to defend a preacher from an “evil government”.

He had responded to the backlash from both the Muslim and Hindu communities by saying that the poem was intended for the Indian government led by Narendra Modi and not Hindus in Malaysia as they “did not worship cows”.
