Nur Sajat has made headlines after “divorcing” Malaysia for good while seeking refuge in Australia. While many are happy that she can finally be free, others continue to condemn her to hell.
In speaking to The New York Times, the 36-year-old celebrity entrepreneur recalled a traumatising incident that took place earlier in January. After being summoned to the religious department of the Selangor state, Sajat claimed she was sexually assaulted by at least 3 men.
Not only did the religious officers “kicked and pinned her down”, they also grouped her boobs and touched her private parts to humiliate her. After being officially charged in a Shariah court, she was detained in a male detention facility.
Sajat’s mother – who witnessed everything – confronted one of the officers there asking how could pious Muslims behave in such a manner. “He responded that Sajat was a man so it was ok. They think it is justified to touch my private parts and my breasts because they perceive me as a male person,” Nur Sajat told the publication. “They didn’t treat me with any compassion or humanity.”
The successful businesswoman also highlighted the worsening climate for the LGBT community in Malaysia. Now that she’s settled in Australia (she gave fans a first look at her new house), she’s planning “to rebuild my business empire here” after selling off her skin care, wellness and clothing business in Malaysia.
