CIVIL society group Global Human Rights Federation (GHRF) wants police to act against Moroccan influencer Abdellatif Ouisa for allegedly insulting and mocking non-Islamic beliefs before he leaves the country.

GHRF president Shashi Kumar said he was informed that Abdellatif was planning to leave Malaysia in the next 24 hours.

Abdellatif had uploaded TikTok videos of him reciting verses of the Quran in front of the Lord Muruga statue at Batu Caves and at the Chin Swee Caves Temple in Genting Highlands recently.

He had come under fire from social media users for calling for the destruction of idols in his videos while others had also shown support for him.

Several police reports have been lodged against Abdellatif.

“There is no time for the police to do their 14 days of investigations to call him in for questioning. It will be too late by then as he would have left Malaysia.

“I am told he is planning to leave the country tomorrow,” Shashi told The Malaysian Insight.

Shashi said that if police were unable to complete their investigations on time, the government should then just ban Abdellatif from entering Malaysia again.

“He is a threat to our national unity. The police have to view it seriously and take action urgently,” he said.

“He showed no respect to our laws and our people. What are his aims in reciting the Quranic verses before a Hindu deity and Buddha statue? He is here just to cause trouble and to mock our religion.

“If the police want, they can arrest him immediately. No need to wait to complete their investigations. After all, they have done this before when someone insults Islam. Why not act in a quick manner against this Moroccan influencer as well?” said Shashi. 

He said that Abdellatif’s behaviour clearly went against the 3R issues.

He said the inspector-general of police and the Tourism Ministry should issue statements on their actions against Abdellatif.

“And the government must ban him from coming back to Malaysia if his intention is only to cause trouble and mock other religions,” he added.

Shashi was disappointed with Batu Caves temple management for not issuing any statements or lodging police reports against Abdellatif’s actions.

Yesterday, police urged members of the public to lodge reports against the foreign influencer so that action can be taken.

According to reports, Abdellatiff is an influencer famous for sharing religious content and boasts a substantial following across various social media platforms, including TikTok, YouTube, and Instagram. 

He holds the position of chief executive officer at Abdeen Academy, a Quran recital school, and serves as the driving force behind Hijra Thobes, a clothing label dedicated to Islamic attire.

Meanwhile Abdellatif in a latest video clip on his TikTok said it was not his intention to hurt anyone with his content made in Batu Caves.

“As a Muslim, I spread love as stated in the Quran. I had no intention to hurt anyone.

“Believe me, I didn’t even know that it (Lord Muruga statue) was a god for the Hindus.

I thought it was a historic point where as a tourist I can record my content.

“I apologize if I have upset anyone,” he said.

He said that he was under the impression he could create content for his video at Batu Caves.

“I thought every tourist can make content there,” he added. – May 25, 2024.
