MAIS tells bloggers, apologise to Selangor sultan or face legal action

 | March 10, 2017

The Selangor Islamic Religious Council denies claims that the sultan is involved in lawsuits.

Mohamad-Adzib-maisSHAH ALAM: The Selangor Islamic Religious Council (MAIS) has dismissed reports in two blogs saying that the Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, is involved in a MAIS lawsuit against Redha Resources Sdn Bhd.

MAIS chairman Mohamad Adzib Mohd Isa said the council urged two bloggers to file a written apology to the Sultan of Selangor as their reports contained defamatory and inaccurate statements against the sultan.

“An article featured in the blog ‘Another Brick in The Wall’, titled ‘Selangor Royal Default’, published on March 6, and another article on the blog ‘Rocky’s Bru’ titled ‘While the Agong Makes Headlines’, published on March 7 have raised anger and hatred against the monarchy and the state’s Islamic religious authority.

“We also found that the contents of the articles directly touched on the facts of the case which are still undergoing court proceedings,” he said in a statement here yesterday (Thursday).

Accordingly, Adzib also urged the bloggers to retract the reports and not to repeat the acts seen to undermine the credibility of the Sultan of Selangor and MAIS.

“We urge the bloggers of the articles to stop the accusations and withdraw the articles within 24 hours of the date of this press statement issued by MAIS.

“An apology should also be published in two local daily newspapers in Malay and English, with a statutory declaration from the bloggers,” he said.

Adzib said if the bloggers failed to comply with MAIS’ demands, it would not hesitate to take legal action against them.
