Posters ‘legitimising’ Syerleena’s murder appear on Facebook
Seri Delima assemblyperson Syerleena Abdul Rashid is up in arms over malicious Facebook posters “legalising” (menghalalkan) her murder for allegedly betraying Islam and attacking its religious institutions.
One poster, which has gone viral on social media, bears the calls to violence: “Her blood is halal, and it is not a sin to kill her.”
Another poster states: “She betrayed Islam. She ought to be killed, because as a Muslim she is colluding with Chinese infidels (Cina kafir harbi) to attack Muslim institutions.”
Accompanying the poster is an image of her giving a speech, superimposed with the caption “I vow to attack Islamic institutions, especially Jakim (Islamic Development Department), for the sake of DAP.”
Syerleena had previously denied the claims which first surfaced last year, and re-emerged as she went on the 14th general election campaign trail.
According to the DAP lawmaker, the posters containing the threats appeared on the Facebook pages of users Yanz AB Rahman and Fitri AMRR.
A similar poster by a user named Khairul Anwar Ismail said: “I am on standby and I am just waiting for the siren to sound.”
“This is a clear death threat and a threat to my safety,” Syerleena said.
“The worst comment is on a Facebook post by one Ja Gmum, who uploaded the post on July 13, which has been shared more than 379 times.
