Misuse of Police to assist Zakir Naik in defamation case

MM Online:

Zakir Naik’s alleged defamation is a civil case

by Wong Ang Peng

SEPTEMBER 12 — Dr Zakir Naik’s allegation of defamation against five others is a civil case and it is not appropriate for the police to investigate a case of civil nature.

It also sends a wrong message to the country at a time when we need to stand united and not allow ethno-religious politicking to rip us apart.

Dr Zakir Naik had accused five persons of defaming him. They are Human Resources Minister M Kulasegeran, Penang Deputy Chief Minister ll P Ramasamay, Klang MP Charles Santiago, Bagan Dalam assemblyperson M Satees, and former ambassador Datuk Dennis Ignatius.

It is not government business to get involved in a civil case concerning private affairs of individuals.

Our police force is professional and must have gotten unwise instruction with political motivation from the Ministry of Home Affairs.

The investigation into the five persons seems to be aimed at appeasing the rural masses that Dr Zakir Naik has strong support. If it is for political expediency, this notion of trying to win votes from the rural masses is unlikely to bear fruit.

The home minister’s party, PPBM PRIBUMI, will gain little or no vote from this police investigation.

In fact, a wrong message is sent to those who have been capitalising on ethno-religious issues with intent to destabilise the PH government. It emboldens them further.

Too much time has been wasted on this race and religious politicking and must be put to a stop.

Our nation building efforts and reform programmes have got distracted.

Whereas, we should be working towards harnessing our collective strength, foster better understanding, respect, trust, and promote unity.

Focus should now be on economic issues.


Kaytee notes:

This has been wrongful use of the police in looking into matters pertaining to a civil case, that of Islamist 'pseudo-Hero' Zakir Naik suing Malaysian citizens.

The PM, Home Minister and the IGP have to answer for such impropriety in the (mis)employment of public resources in support of a foreigner, wanted by Indian police for alleged crimes.

  1. IGB's arm is twist, that's why he yearns for his retirement days!

  2. It was also reported that polis resources were used to assist Islamic religious authorities raid and arrest Shiite Muslims’ private gatherings to celebrate Ashura in Selangor and Johor.

    Was this misuse as well? Were any criminal or civil laws broken? Or just Allah’s laws, as interpreted by Sunnis? Has our polis force become a religious polis? Serve Allah and Country?
