Cops to investigate blog insulting Prophet Muhammad

KUALA LUMPUR: Police will investigate the people behind a weblog said to be full of insults to Prophet Muhammad.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said this after Utusan Malaysia carried a report about the blog on its front page Saturday.

“The act (insulting the Prophet) can cause anger and offend especially the Muslims and Malays. It also provokes religious and racial conflicts,” he said.

He said that from the legal perspective, it was an offence under the Sedition Act and the police would immediately investigate the owner and writer of the blog.

According to the report, the blog used pictures and drawings purportedly belonging to a Malay woman said to be open-minded but the Malay language daily claimed that the woman’s photograph and name had been used by another party. -- Bernama
