PETALING JAYA: Two videos of an altercation outside a mosque at Austin Perdana, Johor Baru on Friday afternoon are going viral.

The incident is said to have sparked when a man driving a white car honked repeatedly outside a mosque during prayer time because his car was blocked by vehicles parked on both sides of the road.

After prayers, it is believed that a group of men emerged from the mosque to confront the driver of the car.

In videos captured by bystanders, some men are seen kicking and hitting the car.

The driver then reverses the car suddenly in an attempt to escape the crowd, almost hitting a man standing near the car.

The men shout at the driver and then start bashing the rear car windshield with a helmet and orange road cone, breaking it.

The driver then steps out of his car, only to be attacked by the large group of men.

A woman is seen running towards the driver but is stopped by onlookers.

Several people gather to watch the altercation, but nobody tries to stop the fight.

A woman who took the footage is heard saying that the Camry driver is being "seriously beaten" by the crowd.

"There are hundreds of people here that beat up one man. He might be dead," she says in Mandarin.

Johor Baru South Deputy OCPD Supt M. Kumar confirmed the case and said that the police would issue a press statement soon.
