Kuala Lumpur: The Cabinet on Friday agreed that firm and immediate action on the “Allah” socks issue is necessary for the matter to be resolved as soon as possible, said Fahmi Fadzil.

The Communications Minister said the Cabinet saw that the issue involving the sale of the socks by KK Super Mart Bandar Sunway branch in Petaling Jaya recently had resulted in a perception of religious insult and racial sensitivities in the country.

Fahmi, who is also the Unity Government spokesman, said the relevant authorities had been actively investigating the “Allah” socks issue, which has gone viral on social media since March 13.

“Now police have conducted investigations and taken appropriate actions. For enforcement action, can refer to what has been done by police; for any legal actions, refer to the Attorney General’s Chambers,” he told a press conference at Angkasapuri, here, Friday.

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department Director Datuk Seri Mohd Shuhaily Mohd Zain, in a press conference, said police had completed their investigations on the matter and are awaiting further instructions from the Attorney-General’s Chambers.

Fahmi said following the socks issue, there was a surge in reports received by TikTok regarding content on the platform from March 13 until Thursday.
