Rights group calls out religious authorities ‘harassing’ convert

HINDU Agamam Ani Malaysia today lashed out at the Kota Tinggi Islamic Religious Department for “harassing” a woman challenging her unilateral conversion to Islam when she was a child.

Chairman of the religious group, Arun Dorasamy, said the department’s officials had scolded the 25-year-old woman and invaded her privacy when they barged into her house and took photographs of her and her three children without her permission.
