No reason for Jakim to question me, says Siti Kasim

Lawyer calls for authorities to read the full report of her interview with a Chinese daily before questioning her, saying she will take legal action on the issue.


PETALING JAYA: Prominent lawyer-cum-activist Siti Kasim took to Facebook to question the need for Jakim to call her in to give a statement.

She said it was also strange that she was not informed directly by Jakim but only knew about it when she read the news online.

Yesterday, Bernama reported Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki as saying that Jakim will summon Siti Kasim “to record a statement following her remarks on the existence of god which are deemed deviationist”.

He had said the Islamic religious department can take action if the lawyer had committed an offence.

“It’s strange that I get information to be called by Jakim from the news online when I have not heard anything myself.

“They want to call me based on what?? Due to an idiot blogger who created a story for whatever his reasons and twisted it to make it look as if I have created a new God?” she wrote on her FB page last night, in response to the news report.

Calling for the authorities to read the full interview with a Chinese daily where she allegedly made the offending statement, Siti Kasim said she will have no hesitation in taking legal action “against anyone or anybody who try to bully or defame me”.
