Kelantan cops probe woman for allegedly belittling Islam


KOTA BHARU (Bernama): Kelantan police have received a report regarding a woman, believed to be a cosmetics product founder, for belittling Islam.

Kota Bharu OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Rahim Daud said the report was lodged at the district police headquarters at 10.25am on Sunday (May 30).

"The complainant claimed to have watched a video shared on Whatsapp last night showing a Malay woman in her 30s stating that she did not like praying and that everyone did not perform salat in 2021.

"The action can be viewed as belittling the religion and could incite anger among the community, ” he said when contacted on Sunday.

ACP Abdul Rahim said preliminary checks have been made regarding the video and further investigation would be done under Section 505(b) of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

Several video clips about the woman who issued a statement seemingly belittling Islam, including salat and Yasin recitations had gone viral on social media.- Bernama
