Nur Sajat has been dominating the headlines for these past few days.
Unsurprisingly. the latest issue involving the sensational business figure has sparked a major outrage among local netizens. Some even took it too far by leaving threatening comments to put an end to her life!
Recently, several screenshots showing netizens plotting to kill Sajat (full name Muhammad Sajjad Kamaruzzaman) began circulating on social media. As stated by Twitter user @syafiqmasrii, this came after the queer figure expressed her intention to renounce Islam.
Some of the comments left by them include:
- “Who wants to kill her now let’s go!!!”
- “Kill her.”
- “Pancung ja (Off with her head right away).”
- “Her blood is halal now.”
- “I feel like killing someone.”
Despite that, a few social media users out there also stepped forward to defend the sizzling influencer against the IG trolls. In this case, most of them pointed out their disagreement towards the actions of those who arbitrarily inflict punishment on other people.
“The way all of them are obsessed with violence, when what Sajat has done is between her and God, not even towards any of these violence-condoning bastards,” one Twitter user wrote. Check out some of the other reactions we found online below:
“The fact that people can call for violence and issue death threats openly demonstrates a high level of impunity in this country, especially against trans and gender diverse women. These forms of extremism based on religion and patriarchal ideas are worrying,” said Justice for Sisters (JFS) Thilaga Sulathireh .
She added that death threats are a crime under Section 506 of the Penal Code which provides for imprisonment for up to 7 years or a fine or both. Threats on social media are a crime under the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 which provides for a fine not exceeding RM50,000 or imprisonment not exceeding 1 year or both.
