Over the weekends, over 3,000 police reports were lodged against a Kedah-based preacher after a video showing him making disparaging comments on the Hindus, Buddhists and the Dayak community.
According to The Star, the Global Human Rights Federation President, S.Shashi Kumar, together with several groups and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) had come together to lodge mass police report against Ustaz Syakir Nasoha for defaming the non-Muslim religions.
“We, the non-Muslims, are fed up of being targeted. Enough is enough. This is a deliberate attack on non-Muslims.” him said, as reported by The Vibes.
“So, we are lodging these police reports because we want this preacher to be arrested immediately and charged.”
“There are many cases where those who insult and defame non-Muslims are only arrested but not charged.”
In the video, Syakir told the attendees of the sermon that people who are against the Muslims are people of Christianity and Judaism. He then added that the people who bombed schools in Siam (the previously name of Thailand) were the Buddhists.
“Who are the ones bombing mosques? Is it America or Israel? No, it’s the Buddhists. Who are killing Muslims in Pakistan and India? It’s the Hindus,” the preacher said into a microphone.
“And remember people who practise those faiths are here in Malaysia too. Who are the ones who kill Indonesians? (People of) Papua New Guinea.”
“The Dayaks… until our Muslims are dying. Women were raped, men were slaughtered.”
“Can’t you see? All these show that they are here to attack us.”
After those remarks, Syakir told the attendees to defend and fight the enemies of Muslim.
Meanwhile, Malay Mail reported that the Brickfields district police chief ACP Anuar Omar confirmed his police station has received at least five police reports against Syakir
He said that Syakir had allegedly committed an offence under Section 298A of the Penal Code, where the provision deals with those who cause disharmony, disunity, feelings of enmity, hatred, ill will, and prejudice that affect the maintenance of harmony, or unity, on grounds of religion.
