NGOs lodge reports against Perlis mufti

KUALA LUMPUR: Several Hindu NGOs and activists lodged police reports against Perlis mufti Datuk Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin (pic) over a video of a talk he delivered, in which he is claimed to have made dis­­para­ging re­­marks about a Hindu deity.

The group made up of 10 NGOs claimed that Dr Mohd Asri, who is also known as Dr Maza, had insulted the Hindu religion as the unda­ted video showed him claiming the wife of one deity had an extramarital affair.

Asri Zainul Abidin sekali lagi dilantik sebagai Mufti Negeri Perlis berkuatkuasa 1 Februari 2015 bagi menggantikan Dr. Juanda Jaya yang tamat perkhidmatannya pada tahun lalu.Mohd.
