Klang MP Dr Siti Mariah Mahmood has lodged a police report against former Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo for claiming that a Pakatan Rakyat component party was trying to ban mosques from broadcasting the azan (Mus-lim call to prayer) on loudspeakers.
She lodged the report at the Dang Wangi police station at 11am yesterday.
Dr Khir was reported to have made the statement, which appeared in a Malay daily on Tuesday.
Dr Siti Mariah claimed Dr Khir said that a Pakatan Rakyat leader was preparing a petition with residents in Puchong to get all mosques to stop airing the azan on loudspeakers, saying that this was not true.
She called on the people to remain calm and not be taken in by the wild accusations.
Dang Wangi police chief Asst Comm Zulkarnain Abdul Rahman confirmed that a report was lodged by Dr Siti Mariah.
Dr Khir has refused to comment since it was a police matter now.
