Al-Jazeera finally catches wind of our embarrassing JAWI raids, book bans, moral policing & censorship by harassment in Malaysia. It’s a feature! Apparently these are how religious officials like these days:

Nik Raina and Fung were then ordered to appear at JAWI’s offices the next day. When they did so, Nik Raina’s lawyer was turned away, denying her a right to counsel that’s enshrined in Malaysia’s constitution.
