Well-Known Islamic Teacher Charged with Molestation…
KUALA LUMPUR: A well-known Islamic religious preacher from Iraq is being investigated for allegedly molesting a young woman he met through social media.
Kuala Lumpur CID chief Asst Commissioner Rusdi Mohd Isa was quoted by The Star as saying the man, said to be a familiar face in major religious events, was arrested last Friday.
The preacher, who has Malaysian permanent resident status, was arrested after the father of the woman lodged a police report against him. He was released on police bail on Tuesday.
The woman, in her 20s, from Penang, reportedly got to know the preacher through Facebook on July 15. On July 24, she travelled to Kuala Lumpur to meet him, according to the report.
The Star reported that she was not his first victim. The preacher had allegedly used his position as an ulama to lure other women, through Facebook, with religious talks.
According to the report, he would first ask for their photos, saying he wanted to check whether they had any physical or spiritual illnesses. After about two weeks, he would ask them to meet him at the Federal Territory Mosque, ostensibly to gain “blessings”.
After congregational prayers, he would allegedly take the women to a luxury Arab restaurant in Sri Hartamas before taking them home.
The report said he was also fond of quoting verses from the Quran and the Hadith (traditions and sayings of Prophet Muhammad) to influence the women.
