Stripped Malaysian PR based on religious offences - New Straits Times

Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the PR status given to the Tanjung Sutera resort owner in Johor Baru was an advantage and not a privilege.

"The status was given to the resort owner under the generosity of the Malaysian goverment and as such, he must be sensitive when it concerns religious matters.

"With this incident in mind, other PRs living in Malaysia should take notice that the authorities will not hesitate to take stern action when it involves Islam, as it is the official religion of the country," he said at a press conference after attending an Aidilfitri event organised by the Persatuan Pengasih here.

The resort owner, only known as Ahmad, who is under remand since Aug 12, was already notified of his PR status said Ahmad Zahid. The 45-year old Singaporean is also a Muslim. He runs the resort, which caters to many Singaporean guests.

Ahmad found himself in hot soup after an 85-second-long video clip showing a group of devotees clad in white chanting in the surau was uploaded on Facebook on Aug 11.

The chanting session, which took place a day earlier, was interrupted by a group of villagers who drove the 14 Buddhists out of the surau. The group, which had booked the place for four days, was then brought to a nearby police station and sent home.
