COMMENT | Why drag religion into anything, Mujahid?

"We do not want to be Malays whose emotions can be played with using narrow racial and religious sentiments.”

–Former religious affairs minister Mujahid Yusof Rawa

COMMENT | The existential threat facing this country is religious extremism. Make no mistake about that. Former Pakatan Harapan religious czar Mujahid Yusof Rawa lamented the fact that newly incarcerated convict, former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak was dragging religion into his court case by carrying out his sumpah laknat.
