KOTA BARU: Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Dr Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki (pic) has urged the public not to make viral videos which are of no value or benefit, including those involving cross-dressers.

Asyraf Wajdi said such videos did not benefit the community or help build a good mindset and sense of identity.

“There are many more important things, and for me, the media should not sensationalise things that are not beneficial to the people,” he said.

Asyraf Wajdi said that he does not want to comment on things that don’t bring meaning to the development of the ‘ummah’ (Muslim community) and the country.

He said this when speaking to media at the Kelantan Islamic Education Convention organised by the Kelantan Federal Development Department and the Malaysian Islamic Da’wah Foundation here on Saturday (Jan 20).

In a news report today, Malaysian Islamic Consumer Association (PPIM) chief activist Datuk Nadzim Johan was quoted as calling on government agencies to take legal action against several cross-dressers who were popular on social media to curb such behaviour from spreading. – Bernama
