1. Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah has accepted Dr Afifi Al-Akiti’s resignation from the title of Orang Kaya Kaya Imam Paduka Tuan (Orang Besar Delapan) Perak. Dr Afifi says his resignation was connected to viral posts on social media that intended to tarnish his name.

2. Dr Afifi adds, he decided not to respond to the allegations as it would lead to a prolonged debate with no benefit. “Menginsafi perkara ini yang jika berlarutan dan tidak dibendung akan menjejaskan kemuliaan Raja Pemerintah dan institusi istana, saya mengutus warkah ini.”

3. He says the posts shared appeared to question the suitability of his role as he was attached to the palace and disputed his role involving Islamic religious affairs. This follows a video of a man at a nightclub, who was reportedly a religious figure and adviser to the Sultan.
