Jakim confirms employing Zamihan, works at Home Ministry
The Islamic Development Department (Jakim) has confirmed that preacher Zamihan Mat Zin was under its employment and said he was seconded to the Home Ministry.
Jakim director-general Othman Mustapha said this in a statement yesterday.
Checks on Jakim's website revealed that Zamihan was given the title "Islamic affairs officer" and is attached to the Home Ministry's publications and Quranic text control division.
Othman said Jakim takes seriously the allegations that Zamihan had criticised the Johor sultan in a recent speech that has been widely circulated online.
"Jakim called up Zamihan this morning for a detailed explanation on the matter. Jakim has decided to refer the matter to the disciplinary board for further action," he said...
