KUALA LUMPUR,( Oct 15 ) — The police have identified 39 Malaysians, one of them a woman, as having links with militant groups, including the Islamic State (IS), the Dewan Rakyat was told, Wednesday.
Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the police had yet to get verification on the involvement of any individual in the activities of the Jihad Al-Nikah or sexual ‘jihad’.
He disclosed this in a written reply to a question from Lim Lip Eng (DAP-Segambut) on the matter.
The Jihad Al-Nikah refers to the controversial concept of women offering themselves to militants to satisfy the latter’s sexual needs.
Ahmad Zahid said the government would act in accordance with the law against those proven to be involved in militant activities.
This included using the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012, Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorism Financing Act 2001, Penal Code and Societies Act 1966, he said.
“The government has never recognised any entity, organisation or pact involved with militants in the country or abroad,” said Ahmad Zahid.–BERNAMA
