Bukit Aman investigating PMYT, identifying members in alleged cult group


KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman has confirmed it is investigating a social media account holder who is allegedly associated with the spread of deviant religious teachings under a group called “Perjalanan Mimpi Terakhir” (PMYT).

Federal CID director Comm Datuk Seri Abd Jalil Hassan said they had opened investigations against Facebook account user Masitah Ab Jalar, also known as Sittah Annur.

“The investigations are focused on a number of videos containing statements that touch on faith, as well as Islamic beliefs via the Cahaya Islam and S'ttah An Nur PMYT YouTube account, as well as numerous social media platforms.

"Some of these videos include a confession of a woman who claims she could communicate with Allah, the Angels and the Prophet Muhammad," he said in a statement on Friday (Sept 3).

"The suspect has been identified and a statement has been recorded.

"The police are now working to identify other individuals involved in the case to complete investigations," he said, adding that the case was investigated under Section 298A of the Penal Code for promoting racial or religious enmity.

Comm Abd Jalil said they were also investigating the case under Section233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 for misuse of network facilities.

"We advise the public to be cautious when dealing with any issue which touches on racial or religious sensitivities.

"We also urge the public to be responsible social media users and not use these platforms to cause public anxiety or threaten national harmony.

"Stern action can be taken against any individual who intentionally threatens public order and security," he said.

It was reported that police have recorded a statement from a woman known as “Sittah Annur", who is allegedly associated with a group called PMYT, on Thursday (Sept 2).

There are claims that PMYT has 3,000 members, but according to the police, these followers were only following the group on social media accounts such as Facebook, instead of being active members.
