Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah said he had studied the JAIS report on the investigation conducted during a thanksgiving dinner at the church premises and after obtaining advice from religious and legal experts, he agreed that no legal action be taken against any quarters.

The Sultan said JAIS’ jurisdiction was provided under the Selangor Syariah Criminal Procedure Enactment 2003, Selangor Syariah Criminal Enactment 1995 and Selangor Non-Islamic Religion (Control of Propagation Among Muslims) Enactment 1988.

“In reference to the Jais investigation, there were evidence of attempts to proselytise Muslims. But the evidence obtained were insufficient to institute legal action,” the ruler said in a statement issued by the Office of the Selangor Sultan, here, Monday.

Sultan Sharafuddin also instructed JAIS to provide counselling to the Muslims who attended the dinner function so as to restore their faith and belief in Islam.
