The Crackhouse Comedy Club, which is in the middle of a controversy, has been vandalised with splashes of red paint.
The club was located on the second floor of a row of shophouses in Taman Tun Dr Ismail and had its signboard and ground floor entrance has been splattered with red paint. The residue can also be seen on the road in front of the building.
Apart from that, the posters that were on the walls of the stairs leading up to the club were also vandalised.
Meanwhile, the Hong Leong Bank branch on the ground floor next door was also a victim of vandalism with its door also splashed with black paint. According to The Vibes, a bank employee said that police had come by the area in the morning yesterday (19 July).
Last week, there has been a stir on social media after a video of a Muslim woman taking off her tudung and baju kurung after introducing herself while performing at Crackhouse Comedy Club went viral online.
Since then, netizens have accused the woman of insulting Islam and demanded the authorities take action against her.
Following the fiasco, the co-founder of the comedy club Rizal van Geyzel was also arrested and investigated under Sedition Act 1948 and the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.
In a statement issued by federal police secretary Datuk Noorsiah Mohd Saaduddin, she said the arrest on 14 July was to assist investigations into 2 videos purportedly taken at a comedy club.
She added that investigation papers will be submitted to the Attorney-General’s Chambers for further action.
On the other hand, the Muslim woman who is at the centre of this fiasco, Siti Nuramira Abdullah pleaded not guilty against charges of inciting religious disharmony during her stunt.
It is learnt that she has been re-arrested by the Federal Territories Islamic Religious Department (Jawi) and charged under Section 7 of the Shariah Criminal Offences (Federal Territories) Act 1997, relating to insulting, or bringing into contempt, etc. the religion of Islam.
