PKR Youth: Calling Anwar 'dajal' is seditious and a provocation

JOHOR BARU: PKR Youth has lambasted a Bersatu leader for allegedly declaring Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to be a "dajal" (false messiah), saying that this was a provocation to pit Malaysians against each other.

Johor PKR Youth chief Mohamad Taufiq Ismail also said the move had a seditious slant to it.

He claimed he had seen a video of a ceramah in Kemaman on Sunday in which Bersatu information committee member Badrul Hisyam Shaharin, better known online as Chegubard, had equated Anwar to a "dajal kecil".

Taufiq said this was seditious as it was slander designed to create anger towards the prime minister.

"As a Malaysian who loves peace and harmony, I am very angry. I feel like religion today is being wrongly used by certain irresponsible quarters just to spread hate.

"After watching the video, I find that there were elements of sedition meant to sow hate among Malaysians in regards to the 3R issues of race, religion and the royal institution, just to gain votes in the Kemaman by-election," he said last night after lodging a police report on the matter at the Johor Baru Selatan police headquarters.

Taufiq, who is also Johor PKR deputy chairman, said he had lodged the report to urge the authorities to investigate what Badrul Hisyam had said.

He said he believed police can take action under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act, sections 4(1)(a) and (b) of the Sedition Act, and sections 499, 500, 504, 298, 298(a) and 505(c) of the Penal Code.

"I also ask police to use their powers under sections 6(3)(b) and (c) of the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 to stop such messages being sent on social media," he said.

Taufiq also took a swipe at religious leaders who had not censured Badrul Hisyam for misusing religion in such a way.
