Marzuki claims cabinet decides not to deport Zakir, sources say otherwise
Deputy Foreign Minister Marzuki Yahya (above) has been quoted as saying that the cabinet has made a decision not to deport Indian-born preacher Dr Zakir Naik.
However, highly-placed sources Malaysiakini spoke to in response to Marzuki's remarks said the Cabinet has made "no decision" on Zakir as yet.
"The decision not to deport yet is based on the current situation. Of course, what happens in the future is dependent on several factors including the ongoing police investigation," one source explained.
However, he said cabinet had decided to put a stop to Zakir getting involved in local politics.
Marzuki had made the remarks about the cabinet decision when asked about the planned rally in Brickfields over Zakir today which had been cancelled.
Deputy ministers are not cabinet members and are not allowed to attend cabinet meetings.
The Deep State virus is all powerful, insidious and is very contagious...even Syed Saddiq has been infected, from supporting Zakar Naik's deportation on 14 August, to inviting him to his house for dinner 10 days later and forgiving him.ReplyDelete
Only DAP leaders and those who have strong immunity to this virus stand strong against this Pied Piper of the weak minds and guilty hearts.
