The Malaysian Islamic Consumers Association (PPIM) has expressed concern over the action of certain individuals who have openly stir racial and religious provocations in the country.

Its chief activist Nadzim Johan also wanted the government to take action against such individuals because it could trigger anger and unexpected reaction from the public.

“We worry about those with agenda...we don’t want to have this matter get out of control and action needed to be taken regardless of of their religion or race,” he said after the launch of the second season’s ’Gerakan Kuasa Pengguna’ programme to be aired on Bernama News Channel.

Nadzim, among others, referred to the statement issued by former Information Minister Zainuddin Maidin who proposed that tahfiz schools be closed.

Meanwhile Zainuddin on his blog page said the proposal for the tahfiz schools to be closed was because some of their operations was not on par with those of national schools and hoped the government would take action against them.
