PKR Youth chief Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad defended Selangor speaker Hannah Yeoh, who was accused of having a Christianisation agenda, by declaring that his political career was motivated by his religious convictions as well.

Yeoh yesterday lodged a police report against Universiti Utara Malaysia lecturer Kamarul Zaman Yusoff, who alleged she had a Christian agenda based on her book where she said her faith is a driving force in her life.

"As a politician who is motivated by Islam to partake in civil society, I, too, have many Christian friends with whom I easily discuss similarities and differences in our faiths.

"I find it easier to work with politicians who are positively motivated by their faiths," he said in a statement.
