KUALA LUMPUR: The Government will investigate a report against a website which is said to contain elements of deviant teachings, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom said.
He said the investigations would involve the Home Ministry, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and the Islamic Development Department (Jakim).
“We will monitor and investigate the report because we do not want the website to poison the minds of society,” he told reporters after opening a convention on mosque management here yesterday.
He said the Prime Minister’s Department would also work with other communication and multimedia agencies to monitor the spread of deviationist teachings through the Internet.
Earlier in his speech, Jamil Khir advised mosque committee members to manage their finances well so that they would be able to carry out more activities for society.
“They should not depend only on the mosque funds, but collect donations, including from house to house, so that they need not have to depend on others, like the religious department,” he added. — Bernama
