25 Imams sacked, 10 transferred out in Perlis
Perlis: The dismissal of 25 imam and the transfer of 10 others were carried out under the jurisdiction of the Perlis Islamic Religious and Malay Customs Council (MAIPs), beyond the powers of the state government, said the State Islamic Religious Committee chairman Ruzaini Rais.He said the state government was also not informed on the matter.

"I hope all the imam concerned would remain calm and not take action which could tarnish their good name.

"I hear those who are dissatisfied will hold a picket in several mosques after the Friday prayers tomorrow," he told Bernama when contacted on Thursday.

Ruzaini urged the imam concerned to think before taking any action out of respect for the Raja Muda of Perlis Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail as the president of MAIPs. – Bernama
