Nur Sajat‘s disappearance from the public remains a mystery. Unsurprisingly, the prolonged issue involving the controversial figure even caught the attention of the Religious Affairs Minister, Datuk Dr. Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri.
In this case, The Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department has advised Sajat (full name Muhammad Sajjad Kamaruzzaman) to surrender herself to the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (JAIS) officials so that the issue can be settled in an amicable manner.
“I would like to advise Sajat to meet the JAIS officials, and resolve the issue amicably so that the situation doesn’t become more tense. I have also discussed with JAIS on this matter. From what I’ve seen, the action taken by them is appropriate to the situation,” Dr. Zulkifli
Not only that, Dr. Zulkifli also commented that the queer entrepreneur shouldn’t have expressed her intention to leave Islam. “The Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM) will mobilise a religious affairs committee to tackle on issues or activities related to deviation from the Islamic teachings,” the minister was quoted as saying.
To refresh everyone’s memory, Sajat pleaded innocent at the Shah Alam Syariah High Court to charges of bringing contempt to the religion Islam by dressing up as a woman earlier on 6th January 2021.
The next month, the court issued an arrest warrant against her, to which she failed to attend the re-mention of the case when she claimed to fall ill.
