SHAH ALAM, NOV 5: All 16 individuals that were arrested during a raid by Selangor Islamic Religious Department (JAIS) in Bandar Tasik Puteri, Rawang last week will be tried in the Shariah Court on the 20th December 2012.

The raid resulted from information gathered by JAIS Enforcement Department officers; that there was an attempt to revive the Al-Arqam Group at a ceremony organised by Global Ikhwan Sdn. Bhd.

Global Ikhwan is a company that has been said to be connected to the Al-Arqam movement that was declared heretic in 1994.

The Director of JAIS, Datuk Marzuki Husin, in a press conference today, told that all 16 were arrested under Section 12 (C) of the Syariah Criminal Enactment of Selangor 1995.

“All 16 are suspects (OYDS) and will be brought before the Kuang Syariah Court for first mention.”

‘They were however released on a RM 1000 bond with one surety’, he said.

He was accompanied by the Head Deputy Director of JAIS Enforcement Department, Mohd Shahzihan Ahmad during a press conference at the JAIS building here this afternoon.

JAIS Enforcement Department had previously traced an attempt to revive the teaching of Al Arqam held at the Dataran Global Ikhwan Celebration Hall from the 30th October till the 1st of November.

The event was also alleged to have been held in commemoration of the birthday of the Al Alqam founder, Ashaari.

Impersonating as guests at the event for two consecutive nights proved successful when the JAIS officers managed to discover that there were elements of the teaching of Al Alqam.
