122 Officers to Arrest Sajat?! Netizens Rage

As of yesterday (Feb 25), JAIS (Jabatan Agama Islam Selangor) launched a state-wide search for cosmetics entrepreneur, Nur Sajat. 

According to reports, JAIS sent out 122 personnel and enforcement officers around the state, to arrest one person. 


Apparently, transgender Internet sensation Sajat had failed to attend a Shariah high court proceeding last Tuesday, with regards to a case three years ago. 

Under the specific section, she had been accused of insulting the religion of Islam or causing it to be insulted, either by mocking or blaspheming the faith, and its associated practices and rituals either in a written, pictorial or photographic form. 


A warrant for her arrest was issued yesterday afternoon, and she has yet to be detained. However, since the the news and trending on Twitter, netizens have had a lot to say on the matter. 

Subsequent to her coming out, Sajat has suffered intense scrutiny by both the government and the media with regards to gender identity. 

As a matter of fact, last year, after confidently posting some pictures of herself on social media, Religious Affairs Minister Datuk Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri noted that on top of arrests, Islamic enforcers would also be providing religious education to transgenders, as a means for them to ‘return to the right path’.
