POLITICAL ISLAM? KHALID SAMAD FINED RM2,900 – MAY LOSE MP’s SEAT

KLANG – Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad was slapped with a RM2,900 fine by the Klang Lower Shariah Court Thursday for preaching without accreditation.

He was found guilty of committing the act in a surau in Kapar in 2011.

The turn of events may see Khalid, who is Amanah communications director, losing his seat in line with Article 48 of the Federal Constitution.

Under the law, elected representatives will lose their seats in the event they are convicted and fined not less than RM2,000 and slapped with a jail term of not less than one year.

He was the deputy Selangor PAS commissioner when he gave the talk at the surau.
