Cops urge for calm as comedy club vandalised

KUALA LUMPUR: City police have urged cooler heads to prevail after the Crackhouse Comedy Club was splashed with paint.

When contacted, city police chief Comm Datuk Azmi Abu Kassim confirmed that a police report was lodged over the incident and that they were investigating the matter.

“We urge the public to refrain from taking matters into their own hands and abide by the law at all times,” he said.

It was learnt that police were alerted by the public about the incident at around 7am yesterday.

The signboard and front door of the premises at Taman Tun Dr Ismail here were splashed with red and black paint.

The paint also hit an adjacent shoplot.

The comedy club has been at the centre of attention following the spread of a 54-second video clip showing a woman removing her tudung and baju kurung, revealing her low-cut top and short skirt underneath.

She had earlier claimed to have memorised 15 juz of the Quran.

The club was eventually suspended pending investigations into its licence.

On July 13, the woman in the video, Siti Nuramira Abdullah, pleaded not guilty at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court to a charge under Section 298A(1)(a) of the Penal Code for causing disharmony, disunity, or feelings of enmity, hatred, or ill-will, or prejudicing the maintenance of harmony or unity on the grounds of religion.
