The Penang government today described PAS’ allegation that it had interfered in the state fatwa committee decisions as "slanderous".

State executive councillor Abdul Malik Kassim said such a remark should not have come from an Islamic party leader.

“Islam does not condone slander,” he said at a press conference, accompanied by DAP's Bukit Bendera MP and Penang Institute CEO Zairil Khir Johari.
