Jakim identifies location of deviant group Hadi Minallah's operations centre

PUTRAJAYA: The Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) has identified the location of the operations centre of a deviant group known as Hadi Minallah, says Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Datuk Idris Ahmad.

He said information regarding the location had been channelled to the The Federal Territories Islamic Religious Department (JAWI) for further action.

"On Sunday (Aug 7), I received the profile of Hadi Minallah and the address of its operations centre, which some said is located in Langkawi (in Kedah).

"I immediately contacted JAWI as it (taking enforcement actions) falls within the jurisdiction of the state Islamic religious authorities,” he said after officiating the first meeting to elect members of the Federal Territories Syarie Lawyers Council, here on Monday (Aug 8).

Jakim is reported to have lodged a report to the Home Ministry and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission to prevent the spread of the teachings.

The Hadi Minallah group has been found to be active in spreading its teachings through the Persatuan Nur Mutiara Mutmainnah YouTube channel.

A video of a man, believed to be the founder of the group, known as Wayang Hadi Kesumo or Hadi Minallah Aminnullah Ahmad from Indonesia, talking about the ‘Nur Muhammad’ teachings and religious pluralism that deviate from the true teachings of Islam, has gone viral on social media.

Meanwhile, Idris urged Muslims to report to the religious authorities if they come across any activities that were contrary to Islamic teachings. - Bernama
