Social media was abuzz after a photo of Neelofa and her husband, Muslim preacher PU Riz, allegedly on a honeymoon in Langkawi, began circulating online since last night (Monday, 29th March).
The allegation sparked after a Twitter user known as @arxxxxmand shared a screenshot of a Facebook post. The snapshot shows a woman clad in an all-black outfit together with a man dressed in a white shirt and a taqiyah (kopiah) on his head – which was believed to be the newly-married couple.
Wait guys, there’s more!
One Facebook user named PakYuss MoSalah recently shared two photos of him with both Lofa and PU Riz on his page. He also tagged the location Langkawi International Airport in the post, further raising everyone’s speculations. He captioned his post, “Special duties. Bringing recently-married Neelofa touring around Langkawi.”
The social media posts have in turn elicited various mixed reactions from local netizens. Many of them slammed the couple for travelling interstate in spite of the current conditional movement control order (CMCO) being underway. Coincidentally, the reports came to light a couple of days after the celebrity couple’s wedding ceremony came under fire for flouting CMCO SOPs!
Amid all the speculations, there were also a few who assumed that the couple might had used the service of a travel agency registered under MOTAC (Ministry of Tourism, Arts & Culture) in order to cross state. For those uninitiated, the Malaysian National Security Council (MKN) previously announced the travel permission for a few states here in our country.
As of now, the interstate travel permission is only allowed between states under the recovery movement control order (RMCO). Check out their official statement below:
So far, both Lofa and PU Riz have yet to address the matter on their respective social media accounts.
