Family members of Economic Affairs Minister Mohamed Azmin Ali have taken to social media to voice support for the PKR deputy president in the wake of a shocking confession over alleged homosexual acts said to involve two prominent party members.

Azmin’s wife, Shamsidar Taharin, asked him to remain strong and patient.

“A believer believes in the decrees of Allah. In desperation for worldly matters, men forget and earn God’s condemnation,” she wrote on Twitter.

Shamsidar, who tagged Azmin in her post, also cited a verse from the Quran which states that slander is worse than murder.

His son, Ameer Azmin, posted a picture of them sitting together with the message: “Always next to you because together we’re stronger.”

Azmin’s eldest daughter, Farah Shazliyana Azmin, said: “We’ve been through this before, and we’ll go through this again. Better together, stronger than ever.”

Top party leaders are expected to meet this evening, with PKR communications director Fahmi Fadzil saying the viral sex videos might be discussed although they will not be the main agenda.

The clips, showing two men engaging in homosexual acts, have been making the rounds on social media since yesterday.

Early today, Muhammad Haziq Aziz, an aide to Deputy Primary Industries Minister Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin, made a shocking confession that he was one of the men in the videos.

Haziq, who is the PKR Youth chief for the Santubong division in Sarawak, also named the person he was with, a senior federal minister who is also a PKR leader. He said the videos were recorded without his knowledge.

The PKR leader in question has yet to respond to the allegations, but party vice-president Zuraida Kamaruddin today voiced her undivided support for him, saying he had been slandered.

“At a time when the people and the government are struggling to fix the country’s economy and improve the lives of the people, this dirty political game is stunting rebuilding efforts.”

She added that she had full confidence in the leader’s credibility and integrity, saying the person who made the allegations against the leader had a questionable past and good relations with the opposition.

“Any political conspiracy to assassinate a person’s character like this must be stopped immediately. I hope the authorities will investigate this and bring the person behind it to face justice,” she said.

Meanwhile, Permatang Pauh MP Nurul Izzah Anwar urged the people to unite in condemning what she called gutter politics, and to focus on “issues and things that matter”.

“My sympathies are with them and their family,” she said in a statement. “We must never underestimate or lose sight of the personal human cost to everyone concerned as a consequence of slander.” – FMT
