Public urged not to be swayed by deviant teachings


BUKIT GANTANG: The public has been advised not to be influenced by the deviant teachings of the “Perjalanan Mimpi Yang Terakhir’ (PMYT) group.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Idris Ahmad, in thanking the police for swiftly arresting the leader, said the matter not only involved religious issues but was a threat to national security too.

He said the government was monitoring the group with the cooperation of state Islamic religious departments.

He advised Muslims who want to learn more about Islam to attend classes organised by mosques or surau as they were monitored by religious authorities.

“Do not get involved with Islamic religious teachings that are held in secluded or hidden places.

“Don’t believe and be influenced by strange teachings. Refer to the religious authorities for verification,” he said after handing over aid to flood victims in three villages here.

Police on Saturday arrested a 39-year-old woman, believed the leader of the group, at her residence in Shah Alam, Selangor.

Information about the woman and her activities went viral recently as her teachings claimed that World War III would start in Sabah and she would lead her team to find Imam Mahdi to fight the enemy. — Bernama
