No More Accreditation To Politicians To Give Ceramah In Mosques In Selangor
SHAH ALAM, Sept 15 – Politicians will no longer be given accreditation to deliver ceramah at all the 2,081 surau and 380 mosques in Selangor, said the Director of the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (JAIS), Marzuki Hussin, today.
“Any politician who has the accreditation previously cannot renew it upon its expiry and they will no longer be allowed to give ceramah at all the surau and mosques in the state,” he said.
Speaking to reporters at his office, here Marzuki said the prohibition against politicians giving ceramah at the mosques and surau in Selangor was in compliance with the directive from the Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah through a circular dated June 22.
He said the Sultan of Selangor was against the issuance of accreditation to all politicians to deliver ceramah at all surau and mosques in Selangor.
Marzuki said those violating the directive (against giving ceramah without accreditation) could be charged under Section 119 (1) of the Jais Administration Enactment where offenders could be fined up to RM3,000 or two years’ imprisonment or both.
