PETALING JAYA: There were no elements in the scenes of the movie “Polis Evo 2” that disparaged Islam, says the Film Censorship Board of Malaysia.

In a statement, it said the movie depicted the story of two police officers who were tracking down a drug syndicate mastermind on an island.

In that operation, the officers were trapped in the midst of an attack by a terrorist group who captured the island’s residents and made them hostage.

“Based on the board’s study of the movie, Polis Evo 2 did not contain elements that can be construed as giving a negative image on Islam.

“The fictional movie did not contravene any provision of the Home Ministry’s film censorship guidelines,” it added.

The board was responding to claims by some groups that the movie had allegedly painted a bad image of Islam.

The board said it has watched the movie and decided to approve it with the P13 classification.
