Suri Kempe

PETALING JAYA: The charges against 80-year old former activist Kassim @ Osman Ahmad brought by the Federal Territory Islamic Department (Jawi) should be dropped, and are a "gross display of overzealousness and abuse of law to silence dissenting opinions," said Sisters in Islam on Thursday.

The statement, which was issued by Sisters in Islam's programme manager Suri Kempe described the treatment of Kassim as "alarming".
