AG Received Investigation Papers Pertaining To The Shoe Logo Lookalike The Word Allah – Fared

JOHOR BAHRU: Investigation papers regarding the logo resembling the word Allah on shoe soles have been handed over to the Attorney General.

Mohd Fared Mohd Khalid, Chairman of the Johor Islamic Religious Affairs Committee, stated that the investigation was conducted by the Johor State Islamic Religious Department (JAINJ) and the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM).

“The investigation papers have been submitted to the attorney general, and whether there will be further investigation or not, I believe that falls within the Attorney General’s jurisdiction.

“But I am confident that the enforcement officers of JAINJ and PDRM have carried out their duties, and the rest we leave to the discretion of the Attorney General to take further action, including if necessary to prosecute those involved,” he told reporters at the Aidilfitri Celebration of the Iskandar Johor Islamic Centre here today.

Previously, a three-minute video circulated on social media showing a man claiming that Vern’s shoes he purchased displayed a logo resembling the word Allah.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Razarudin Husain previously said the police had received eight reports nationwide regarding the logo issue, and investigation papers had been opened to investigate the matter under Section 298 of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

On April 8, it was reported that the Director-General of the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM), Datuk Hakimah Mohd Yusoff, had met with the Founder and Managing Director of Vern’s Holding Sdn Bhd, Datuk Seri Ng Chuan Hoo, for investigation purposes and requested explanations and company measures to prevent such issues from recurring.

In other developments, Mohd Fared said that a total of 3,500 Johor pilgrims will perform the fifth pillar of Islam this year, with the earliest flight scheduled for May 18 involving 500 people.

The Saudi Arabian government has approved a quota of 31,600 hajj pilgrims for Malaysia for this year’s Hajj season, based on 0.1 percent of the Muslim population in the country.
