SHAH ALAM, 19 Nov: The Selangor State Government will continue to curb ‘deviant movement’ (ajaran sesat) activities in the state to its roots with the cooperation of the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (JAIS).
Jais is now actively seeking evidence to act on groups violating fatwa and faith.
Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said that during 2011, there were 11 reported cases of deviant teachings in Selangor and the case is being investigated under Section 12 (c) of the Selangor Syariah Criminal Enactment 1995 for violating the fatwa.
“We will solve this problem. Jais will monitor the group and action to be taken if they are found to deviate from the faith,” he answered Datuk Abdul Rahman Palil (BN-Sementa) at the State Assembly session Selangor today.
Abdul Khalid also said the issue should be resolved altogether instead of pointing fingers and debating the matter
On the 1st of November last year, Jais raided a rally of over 3,500 people, believed to be held in conjunction with the 75th anniversary, of the late Al-Arqam founder, Ashaari Muhammad.
