Malaysian anti-Shia radical Home Ministry Security and Public Order assistant secretary Zamihan Md Zain Al-Ghari once again targeted Shiites saying this was “dangerous” as Shiite Muslims could influence communities.
Stringent prevention laws are needed to curb the spread of Shia teachings in the country, which is currently said to have reached between 200,000 and 300,000 followers.
When making the proposal, Home Ministry Security and Public Order assistant secretary Zamihan Md Zain Al-Ghari fanatically said there was an immediate need to stop the teaching following involvement from politicians and corporate figures.
Their involvement is dangerous as it could subtly influence the community through the spread of ideologies and products, he claimed when presenting a working paper titled â€˜Modus Operandi Gerakan Syiah dan Ancamannya kepada Kestabilan Negaraâ€™ at the â€˜Confronting the Shia Virusâ€™ Seminar in Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), on 13th Oct.
He also urged state religious authorities to intensify operations on Shia headquarters, which should be done more consistently.
â€œSince the Shia Muslims was gazetted as illegal by the National Fatwa Council in 1984 and 1997, not much enforcement was done,â€ he claimed.
Bigot Zamihan, who has 13 years of experience in dakwah and has written more than 20 books on the dangers of Shia understanding, also suggested that Article 3 in the Federal Constitution, which states Islam as the official religion, be amended to only recognise Islamic teachings based on the Sunnah Wal Jamaah.
