Ustaz Wan Ji Wan Hassan make Polis report against Mufti of Pahang for kafir harbi remark

Thank God it finally happened, someone brave enough to lodge a Polis report against the Mufti of Pahang:

Muslim preacher lodges police report against Pahang mufti over ‘kafir harbi’ remark

KUALA LUMPUR, June 27 — Independent Muslim preacher Wan Ji Wan Hussin lodged a police report today against the Pahang mufti over the latter’s remark claiming that anyone who opposed Islam, specifically DAP, was a “kafir harbi” or “non-Muslim infidel”.

Representing PKR Youth’s Badan Pemantapan dan Pemahaman Agama (BPPA), he said that Datuk Seri Dr Abdul Rahman Osman statement was dangerous as it was similar to the propaganda spread by terrorist group Islamic State (IS) or ISIS.

“ISIS follows the teachings that anyone who has a religious stance different from theirs will be accused of being anti-Islam or ‘harbi.’

“We can see that ISIS is a danger to the country because they use religious teachings to justify their actions. When the mufti uses the same terms for non-Muslims, it’s dangerous,” he said in a phone interview with Malay Mail Online after lodging a police report at the Dang Wangi contingent police headquarters today.

He added that in a multiracial and multireligious country like Malaysia, such statements can be very divisive and hoped that the police will act on it.

“This shouldn't be happening in Malaysia. I hope police will take this seriously and we want them to take action. We don't want this to end in violence,” he added.

On Friday, Abdul Rahman was quoted in Utusan Malaysia as labelling the DAP “kafir harbi” over its opposition to hudud laws, adding as well that it would be a “great sin” for Muslims to support the party.

It is believed that those categorised as “kafir harbi” can be killed for being against the implementation of Islamic principles and going against God.

He later clarified in a Sinar Harian report that he wasn’t referring to anyone within the opposition party but rather to DAP’s overall ideology, adding that the term applies to any who opposed Islam.

Abdul Rahman has come under criticism from Muslims and non-Muslims alike for the remark that critics contend would incite violence and extremism, given the growing influence and presence of militant groups like the Islamic State (IS) in Malaysia.

Even Perkasa president Datuk Ibrahim Ali, a frequent and vocal detractor of the DAP, said the Pahang Mufti was excessive to label the opposition party “kafir harbi” simply due to political or other differences.

Though Islam is its official religion, Malaysia is a multi-religious and multiracial country and statements such as that given by the Mufti be it in his personal or official capacity cannot be condoned.

Many of us are waiting to hear from the IGP, the PM and the DPM on the matter...silence is not an option. Action must be taken....

Malaysia is no place for religion inspired extremist like ISIS...the Government must act accordingly and decisively to secure our continued peace.
