JOHOR BARU: Muslim preacher Zamihan Mat Zin has been told to keep his "mouth shut" and resign from the civil service if he is unhappy with the Government.
Deputy Home Minister Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed said the ministry was disappointed with Zamihan for uttering words that challenged religion and the royal institution time and time again. 

He said that after expressing views that hurt various parties, Zamihan had taken things further by criticising Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in a new viral video clip. 

"My advice to him is to keep his mouth shut and think before speaking and refrain from sensationalising matters.  

"Otherwise, we will have to re-evaluate his role," Nur Jazlan said during a breakfast session with voters at Taman Cempaka here on Sunday (Nov 12). 

Nur Jazlan said Zamihan should hold his tongue after getting the backing from Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi who recently said the Government still needed the preacher's expertise to help rehabilitate Islamic State militant detainees at the Tapah Prison in Perak. 

In a YouTube video that surfaced on Oct 23, Zamihan was seen criticising Najib for proposing to allocate a 16ha piece of land in Putrajaya for the King Salman Centre for International Peace (KSCIP) to counter terrorism.
