However, Zamihan said that he apologises to the Johor Sultan if the latter been offended over the misunderstanding, and said he was prepared to meet the Sultan to explain and apologise face-to-face.

However, remaining adamant in his statement on Wednesday, Zamihan said that he never mentioned the name of the Johor Sultan and neither did he use any abusive or seditious words.

“I am prepared to be investigated under the philosophy of courage because I am right and fearful because of Allah’s judgement.

Zamihan said that he had also been incorrectly identified as a Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) officer in the articles, said The Star newspaper.

“While I only worked one year (with Jakim) in 2005 and later in 2006 when I worked with another department, it has been almost 13 years since I worked with Jakim,” he said.

He said the religious lecture he gave at the Masjid Tengku Ampuan Jemaah in Shah Alam on Sunday, which was captured in the video, was given purely in his capacity as Aswaja president and had no connection to the religious department, reported the daily.Follow us on Social Media
