KUALA LUMPUR: The police have recorded a statement from a woman known as ‘Sittah Annur’ who is associated with the spread of allegedly deviant religious teachings by a group called Perjalanan Mimpi Yang Terakhir (PMYT).
According to a source, police recorded the woman’s statement at her house in Selangor yesterday.
They also recorded statements from her husband and a few of her followers and it was also found that due to the current situation, she only had virtual contact with her followers, said the source.
The police are still monitoring the movement.
The woman, believed to be the leader of PMYT, had recently gone viral on the Internet after claiming that World War III would start in Sabah and that she would lead her team to find Imam Mahdi to fight the enemy.
There are claims that PMYT has 3,000 members, but according to the police, these people are actually following the group on its social media accounts such as Facebook.
On Thursday, Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said the police were closely monitoring the matter to ensure it would not cause public anxiety. — Bernama
