BAGAN DATOH – The Bukit Aman Special Branch is monitoring closely the Malay-language Daesh militant publication, believed to be operated by the group’s Malaysian and Indonesian followers, said Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
Ahmad Zahid, who is also Home Minister, said his ministry had not received any print edition of the 20-page publication so far, which could be detected by surfing through the internet.
He said his ministry believed there was an attempt to spread the publication throughout Southeast Asea with a view to influence the people, especially those who understood the Malay language.
“The Royal Malaysian Police and (Home) ministry will continue to monitor any parties that downloaded or print the publication.
“I urge the people not to surf and print because it can be subjected to action being taken in accordance with the law,” he told reporters after the Hilir Perak district level Teachers’ Day 2016 celebration at Sekolah Menengah Sains Bagan Datoh here today.
Ahmad Zahid was asked to comment on the ‘Al Fatihin’ publication in the e-book or digital format which was detected recently. – BERNAMA
