Dr. Mujahid Yusof Rawa has revealed that there’s no scientific proof that shows Nur Sajat was born a hermaphrodite (the condition of having both male and female reproductive organs).
The statement by the minister in the Prime Minister’s Department came in light of the recent controversy involving the 36-year-old transsexual entrepreneur.
According to Dr. Mujahid, it is Sajat’s duty to perform the umrah in accordance with the provisions of the muzakarah (discussions) rulings on issues surrounding the pilgrimage or umrah performed by the mukhannas (transvestite) group.
“We adhere to the ruling that obviously states that without any clear evidence, he will remain as a male. Therefore, all the laws applied will be the same for everyone who performed the umrah and hajj,” he told Awani.
Dr. Mujahid had a meeting with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) as well as Albayt Travel (M) Sdn. Bhd. yesterday (Monday, 3rd February) to discuss about the recent issue involving Sajat (real name Muhammad Sajjad Kamaruzzaman).
“I will take strict action against Muhammad Sajjad who uploaded several clips and photos of him performing the worship in Mecca while dressing up as a female. The issue has caused major discomfort among Muslims after the posts went viral. Immediate measures will be taken by MCMC,” Dr. Mujahid further added in the session.
Dr. Mujahid also explained that his meeting with the MCMC was done because they have the power to block any social media that shows content that might bring uneasiness and discomfort among Muslims. On the other hand, the meeting with Albayt Travel – Sajat’s travelling agency – was also conducted in order to find out the real situation in Mecca.
As at time of writing, the “Makhluk Penggoda” singer has still yet to return to Kuala Lumpur.
