Jais invites teachers to 'Anwar' seminar, Umno fumes

Modified 23 Nov 2016, 6:42 am

The Selangor government instructed the state Islamic Religious Affairs Department (Jais) to invite teachers to a seminar on 'The Thoughts of Anwar Ibrahim' for Islamic school teachers next Monday.

"Jais received instructions to extend the invitation to teachers under Jais' purview, but it is not compulsory to attend," Jais director Haris Kasim said in a statement.

Haris said this after an invitation letter from Jais to Islamic schools in the districts of Petaling and Klang was circulated on social media.

"The department would like to invite you to this seminar," the letter addressed to assistant principals reads.
