Facing charge, Siti Kasim claims police chief trying to jail her
Lawyer Siti Kasim is expected to be charged in court next week for showing her middle finger to an audience at a forum in 2016.
Revealing this in a statement yesterday, Siti also alleged that the charge to be brought against her was the doing of a senior police officer, who “has been trying to put me behind bars”.
She said that a police inspector called and told her yesterday that there was an instruction to charge her under Section 509 of the Penal Code over the incident in Shah Alam.
“I have been keeping this quiet but I think I must get this out to the public. I know the OCCI Selangor (Selangor Criminal Investigation Department chief), named Fadzil, has been trying to put me behind bars.
“I do believe he orchestrated the raiding into my house with the ridiculous mind-blowing kidnapping charge. If not because of the unplanned video that went viral, I would be facing a charge for a capital offence. Kidnapping carries the death penalty!,” she said in the statement.
Siti was referring to Selangor CID chief Fadzil Ahmat, and a police raid on her house in Kajang, in June last year. The raid saw Siti arrested for obstructing a public servant from discharging his duties after police had taken away a woman she had been sheltering at her home.
In the Sept 5, 2016 incident, Siti had allegedly showed her middle finger to an audience at a forum on Act 355 held at Karangkraf Complex in Shah Alam.
This allegedly happened when she went to the forum and started to speak against enforcement of Syariah laws, which was received with jeers from members of the audience.
‘Order came from AGC’
The lawyer also alleged that Fadzil wanted to get at her because “he is an Islamist who hates my guts”.
“How I know this, you may ask… I have evidence of it, of course. Why does he want to get me, you may ask again… well… I was told he is an Islamist who hates my guts.
“And the Islamists are out to get me by hook or crook. I am keeping quiet no more and I will fight this and I will make sure anyone who is abusing their powers will get their just punishment,” she said.
Siti also questioned how the Attorney-General’s Chambers had allowed the charge, which she described as “frivolous”, to go on.
Fadzil said the case was further put on hold as police received another case involving Siti over the Kajang incident.
“There are two investigation papers opened in the Kajang case. And we planned to press all the charges together; (we are) waiting for further instructions from (AGC office) in Putrajaya.
“But since there was yet to be a decision on the Kajang case from the AGC, I decided to continue with the (middle finger) incident first as the order from AGC still stands,” he said.
On Siti’s allegation that he was trying to put her behind bars, Fadzil said Siti as a legal practitioner should know better about the judicial process.
“She is a lawyer and should know the process of the law. So, (she should) seek for a fair trial.
“She can prove (in court) if she is not guilty,” he said.

Lawyer Siti Kassim summoned over middle-finger gesture
PETALING JAYA: Lawyer and activist Siti Kasim has been summoned by the police for showing the middle-finger to hecklers at a forum on PAS’ Syariah Bill last month.
“So, the Islamists got butthurt with my middle finger salute to them during the RUU 355 forum. They apparently lodged a police report against me,” she wrote on Facebook, Monday.
Siti said she will have her statement recorded at 8pm at the Shah Alam police district headquarters.
“Do I regret doing it? Well, in the circumstances, I have no other way to convey my disgust to them in interrupting and heckling me.
“Yes, I will do it to whoever that deserve the one finger salute.

I like that Siti Kasim showed her middle finger to those Islamic leaders. I’d do the same and we all should too in our own ways.
Siti Kasim: To me, those Islamist hooligans deserve the finger and more
KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 9 — Lawyer and activist Siti Kasim has justified showing the middle finger to her hecklers at a forum about PAS’ Shariah Bill, describing them as “Islamist hooligans” and “brainwashed morons”.
She said the audience at the forum on “Pindaan Akta 355: Antara Realiti Dan Persepsi” organised by the Karangkraf Group in Shah Alam Monday was full of “Islamists”, or Malays who thought they were trying to uphold God’s laws but who were unwilling to listen to anything else that went against their ideals.
“I have been to so many forums. I have asked hard hitting questions but never in my wildest dream that someday I will show a finger in a forum to the audience.
“I don’t regret it one bit. To me, those Islamists hooligans deserve the finger and more. Crass? Rude? Since when a woman cannot be crass and rude in the face of hooligans and brainwashed morons?” Siti wrote in a Facebook post yesterday.

In reply to Siti Kasim
What a day it has been…. My facebook has gone crazy and apparently twitter has gone bonkers too. I apologize to all friends that have tagged in support or against me as I have no time to go through all of them. Thank you for all your input.
First of all, when I went to the Forum, as you all know, this subject is close to my heart. Hence, I was interested to hear what the panel have to say.
I have been to so many forums. I have asked hard hitting questions but never in my wildest dream that someday I will show a finger in a forum to the audience. I don’t regret it one bit. To me, those Islamists hooligans deserve the finger and more. Crass? Rude? Since when a woman cannot be crass and rude in the face of hooligans and brainwashed morons?
So, what was the difference yesterday and any other forum? Yesterday, the audience were full with Islamists ie Malays who think they are trying to uphold God’s laws. They cannot hear anything that is against their ideals. Their minds are so close that they are unwilling to hear anything else.
I wanted to point out that the PAS speaker was misleading the audience in terms of the law. He failed to mention the real hierarchy of laws in our country. The speakers from PAS and UMNO insisted it is not a HUDUD bill. Of course it is not a HUDUD Bill but it has everything to do with HUDUD. Without this amendment to the limit of punishment in the Syariah Courts, they wouldn’t be able to mete out the punishment already stated in their HUDUD ENACTMENT.
As pointed out by the rep from MCA, in which it was conveniently not answered, that JAKIM’s intention in a proposal by them was to implement HUDUD to the whole country and they are going to start with the amendment to Act 355. So, there it is… their first round of plan is in operation.
I think most of the audience and the Malays do not understand the significance of this Act 355. The Bill seeks to introduce a new Section 2A into the Syariah Court (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965 or Act 355 to increase the Shariah Court’s power to pass sentences. The proposed Section 2A removes the restriction on punishment for offences against the precepts of Islam that the Shariah Courts can currently impose: imprisonment not exceeding a term of three years, a fine not exceeding five thousand ringgit, whipping not exceeding six strokes, or any combination of these punishments (which has come to be known as the “3-6-5 provisions”). No sentence of death can be imposed under the new Section 2A, but the amendment would appear to confer Shariah Courts with unlimited power to impose all other hudud punishments. Hudud offences include offences like zina (adultery), qazaf (false accusation of committing zina), syrub (alcohol consumption) and irtidad or riddah (apostasy) and according to the Kelantan Syariah Criminal Code (II) (1993) 2015 Enactment, punishment for these is whipping, ranging from 40 to 100 lashes. The Bill also seeks to substitute the existing Section 2 in Act 355 with a new section that appears to widen the scope of the Shariah Court’s existing criminal jurisdiction, which is currently limited to offences by Muslims against Islam.
Now, the Islamists will ask why am I opposing this because it is Allah’s will!! NO! NO! NO! It is not Allah’s Will nor is it God’s laws!! We, as Malays must be allowed to openly discuss these so call punishment set out by this Mullahs. Are they really God’s punishment? I will share an example of the real God’s punishment in theft compare to these Mullah’s law later. That is why, I refuse to be governed by these man-made laws under the pretext of Islam. These people are selling Islam. We have been duped for so long.
I know these hardliners are not easy to convince due to the complete brainwashing from their Ostards and Mullahs and most of all our system. Therefore, as a Malaysian Citizen in which my rights are protected under the Constitution and to respect the rights of those who believe they must adhere to their Ostards and Mullahs, I propose we are given the choice to either be governed under the Secular Laws or the Religious Laws. They keep saying why do we want to stop them from practising their belief, so we must not stop them. Those Malays who do not want to be governed under these man-made religious laws, should be allowed to opt out. I will never submit to these man-made laws guise under the cloak of Islam.
If our government of the day, can accommodate this, I promise you, I will never, never interfere with the running of your Islam. I will mind my own business.
My battle all these while was not because of being courageous and brave but because I AM IN FEAR. I am fearful that these Mullahs are taking me away from the true Islam. The Islam that I know as beautiful and full of compassion.
To all that have smeared my name, I forgive you and I hope you will find the true Islam in your lifetime. God has been kind to me by giving me a strong constitution to not be affected by the name-calling and even to the extent in calling me an apostate.
