Pas seeks to strike out Mujahid’s defamation suit over its LGBT claim


KUALA LUMPUR: Pas is seeking to strike out the defamation suit filed by Amanah vice-president Datuk Seri Dr Mujahid Yusof against the party over its allegation that he supports the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. Pas, represented by its secretary-general Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan, filed the application through Messrs Tengku Amalin & Faizi at the High Court here on Feb 15. The application to strike out the suit was made on grounds that Mujahid failed to disclose any reasonable cause of action against the party. Mujahid’s lawyer Noorazmir Zakaria, when contacted, said the application would be heard before Judge Datuk Ahmad Shahrir Mohd Salleh on June 21. Mujahid claimed that on Oct 16 last year, Pas with malicious intent had defamed and humiliated him in an article on Facebook titled “Mantan Menteri Agama PH Sokong LGBT?” (Former PH Religious Minister Supports LGBT?).
