KUALA LUMPUR, March 19 (Bernama) -- Minister in Prime Minister''s Department
Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom had directed the Federal Territory Islamic
Religious Council (MAIWP) and the Malaysian Islamic Development Department
(Jakim) to monitor Al-Arqam internet television channel known as TVRSA.
He said monitoring the TVRSA was important to ensure deviant teachings of
Aurad Muhammadiah, practiced by the group, would be aired.
The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) also actively
monitors the internet television channel and will take appropriate action if it
appears to spread deviant teachings, he said.
"All, including RTM and other television stations and Jakim will continue to
monitor this development because it not only operates in the country but also
"If not curtailed, we fear such teachings will continue to be spread through
the internet television channel. Therefore, we want serious attention from
MAIWP, Jakim and MCMC," he told reporters after visiting the construction site
of a new Hidayatul Mustaqimah Religious Primary School (SRA) in Jinjang Utara,
