Police have not ruled out the possibility that a fake Facebook account allegedly owned by a ‘Wendy Loong’ had been used to publish insulting postings about Prophet Muhammad and Islam.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Mazlan Mansor said that the police were still investigating the matter.
“It’s very likely that he or she is using a fake Facebook account, most likely…otherwise, we should have known about it much earlier. This (act) was done in cyberspace, so it takes some time. We have to look at it from a technical point where the source is from. Regardless, the investigation is ongoing.”
Police have received over 400 reports over the posting.
Prior to this, a posting under a woman’s name, uploading a picture allegedly insulting Islam and Prophet Muhammad through a Facebook account, went viral on Facebook.
