What are our Muslim elected reps or ministers scared of, asks activist lawyer after seeing a video of young men in Manjoi forcing a shop worker to empty out a cabinet of alcoholic drinks.

Activist lawyer Siti Kassim has urged all Malaysians to speak out against “ISIS behaviour” and the “Islamist thuggery” of a group of young Muslims who forced an all-night shop in Perak to empty out a liquor cabinet. She criticised Muslims MPs and ministers for remaining silent.

“This kind of Islamist extremism needs to be halted and nipped at the bud before it becomes a plague, a cancer throughout Malaysian society,” she said in an online posting today.

“I am disappointed that we have not heard a single word against it from our elected Muslim representatives or Muslim Ministers especially. what are they scared of or waiting for? Or do they agree with this behaviour?” she said.

The young Muslims in Perak, from a group known as Jabat, had posted a video showing the group in action in a shop in Manjoi, and the shop worker emptying the cabinet.

Siti Kassim said their action was “the result of more than two decades of Islamist influence in our education system and civil administration”.

She urged all right-thinking Malaysians, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, to speak out against such “Islamist thuggery” and asked the government to act decisively against it.

The group had lodged a police report, declaring their success in campaigning against the sale of alcoholic drinks.
