What game is Pakatan playing?

JAIS, the Selangor Religious Department, comes under the Selangor State Government. The Selangor State Government comes under Pakatan Rakyat. PAS is a member of Pakatan Rakyat and also part of the Selangor State Government. Yet JAIS is hounding and persecuting Pakatan Rakyat people, in particular those from PAS. What game is Pakatan Rakyat playing that maybe we don’t know about? Or is this a case of the tail wagging the dog?

Jais arrest warrant out for artiste and PAS recruit Bob Lokman

(Malaysia Chronicle) – Selangor Islamic religious Department (JAIS) has obtained an arrest warrant to detain celebrity-turned-politician and preacher Bob Lokman for giving a ceramah without Jais accreditation.

Jais Director Marzuki Hussin told reporters at the “Alternative Punishment Seminar: Execution and Effectiveness” at the Intekma Resort on Tuesday, that the warrant was issued on Oct 28 and it permitted the religious body to arrest Bob if he was detected in the state.

“Our department is still on the lookout for Bob, he is wanted to assist investigations that involve him. We are in the process of taking legal action to require Bob to be present in the court (syariah).

“He will be released on bail after his statement has been recorded,” said Marzuki.

He was giving an update on Bob’s case after JAIS nabbed him for giving a ceramah in front of more than 70 people at the Masjid Sungai Lui in Hulu Langat last month.

It was reported that Bob was ordered to turn up at the Jais department but he had refused, saying would rather be arrested.

Bob is being investigated under section under Section 119 (1) of the Jais Administration Enactment, where offenders could be fined up to RM3,000, or be jailed two years, or both.

It was not the first of such case as Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad, had also been charged for the same offence.
