PAS tells Sabah Islamic authorities to act on gay sex confession

Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man warns PAS members against sharing sex clips allegedly involving a minister.

PETALING JAYA: PAS has urged Islamic authorities to bring shariah charges against the man who confessed to having gay sex as seen in video clips that have gone viral since yesterday.

PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man was referring to a video confession by Muhammad Haziq Aziz, who named a minister as his sex partner in the clips which have been making the rounds on WhatsApp.

“Following his confession, PAS urges the Sabah shariah court to take action,” Tuan Ibrahim said in a statement, hours after Haziq posted a 30-second video on his Facebook early today.

In the video, Haziq, who is the private secretary to Deputy Primary Industries Minister Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin, named a senior federal minister as the person seen engaging in homosexual acts with him.

He also claimed the viral sex clips were recorded without his permission on May 11 at Hotel Four Points in Sandakan, during the recent by-election there.

Meanwhile, Tuan Ibrahim urged PAS members not to share the sex clips, saying it amounts to qazaf (slander), which is punishable under shariah.

“As Muslims, we must be consistent based on the shariah, and not indulge in slander (qazaf) without personally witnessing it.

“PAS urges its leaders and members to focus on things that are beneficial to the community,” he said.
