PETALING JAYA: The Communications and Multimedia Ministry has denied that it is involved in a camp for Muslim converts in Perlis, which features controversial preacher Zakir Naik.
The ministry said that its Information Department and Broadcast Department are not involved in the event, set to go on this weekend, as stated in social media.
"The organiser has been asked to remove the logos of the ministry and departments from all its programme materials and publications. The usage of ministerial and departmental official logos without permission is unethical and can confuse the public, " the ministry said in a statement (Aug 15).
It also advised other organisers against any unauthorised usage of these logos for other events in the future.
The Malaysia Reverts Camp 2019 will be held in a mosque in Kuala Perlis, Perlis from Friday (Aug 16) until Sunday (Aug 18).
The programme is free for both Muslims and non-Muslims and is organised by One Centre Malaysia Perlis.
The event will feature lectures by Zakir and his son Fariq, as well as events exclusive for women featuring the preacher's wife, Farhat, and daughters, Zikra and Rushda.
