    Woman in comedy skit tarnishing Islam arrested

    KUALA LUMPUR (BERNAMA) – The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) arrested a woman for allegedly insulting Islam while performing at a comedy club in Taman Tun Dr Ismail in Kuala Lumpur.

    PDRM Secretary Datuk Noorsiah Mohd Saaduddin, in a statement, said the woman was remanded for three days.

    “Currently the suspect is detained at the Brickfields police headquarters and investigations are still ongoing,” she said in a statement yesterday.

    Yesterday, Noorsiah said police were investigating the comedy skit which was filmed and spread on social media and drew an outcry from the Muslim community.
