PETALING JAYA: G25, the group of eminent Malays, is increasingly concerned that negative remarks by controversial preacher Dr Zakir Naik on other religions "are emboldening our Malaysian clerics to follow his intolerant style."

"The responses that we see on chat groups indicate that the non-Muslims are dismayed at the new trend where high-ranking religious officials seem to have immunity in expressing their opinions so freely without regard for the feelings of other races," the group said in a statement on Monday.
