Police have received 483 reports so far over a Facebook post insulting Prophet Muhammad made by an account under the name of Wendy Loong.

Bukit Aman corporate communications head Asmawati Ahmad said the post was made by the account owner in the closed group called ‘Kiub Batu Itu Berhala’.

“The post, however, has been deleted and we are now seeking the help of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia (MCMC) to identify and track down the account owner by the name of Wendy Loong for further action,” she said in a statement.

Asmawati also advised the public against making religiously or racially sensitive comments on social media.

"As Malaysians, everyone has a role and responsibility to maintain peace and harmony in the country," she said.
