KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 13 — The Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) said today it has summoned its enforcers involved in the recent alleged violence during arrest of cosmetics entrepreneur Nur Sajat last week.

In a statement, the department said it has been informed that Nur Sajat has since filed a police report over the incident, where she claimed she had been roughed up by the religious officers.

“The enforcers related to the matter have also been called in to give their statements on [Nur Sajat's] report,” Jais said in a statement.

It also confirmed that Nur Sajat is being investigated under Section 10 of the Syariah Criminal Offences (Selangor) Enactment 1995, after several complaints were made against her in 2018 and 2020.

Section 10 refers to the Shariah offence of insulting Islam or causing Islam to be insulted either by mocking or blaspheming the faith and its associated practices and rituals either in a written, pictorial or photographic form.
