Rogue BFM 89.9 DJ and experimental short film maker Ezra Zaid is back in the bad light again. It seems that he is continuously mocking the ‘kalimah Allah’ issue, even after the highly controversial interview with Reza Aslan on BFM 89.9 which should be seen as insulting.
Perak Perkasa wants action over YouTube clip mocking court ruling on Allah – Bernama
OCTOBER 30, 2013
A screenshot from the YouTube clip which allegedly mocks the Court of Appeal’s ruling on the Allah issue. – October 30, 2013.The Perak chapter of Malay right wing movement Perkasa today lodged a police report over a YouTube clip, which it claimed mocked the Court of Appeal decision on the use of the word Allah.
Its head Mohd Hafez Mubin Mohd Salleh together with 10 other Perkasa members lodged the report at the Ipoh police headquarters in Ipoh, at 1.44pm.
He told reporters the clip titled The Effing Show #95: Allah, Apa Lagi? lasting six minutes and 30 seconds did not respect the sensitivities of Muslims in the country.
On October 14, the Court of Appeal in Putrajaya had ruled that Herald, a weekly published by the Catholic church in the country, could not use the word Allah in its Bahasa Malaysia section, as a reference to God. – Bernama, October 30, 2013.
In no way this should not be seen as mocking the Judiciary, provisions in the Federal Constitution particularly Article 3(1) and Article 11(4), HRH Sultan Selangor’s titah on the subject matter and the investigation currently being carried out by Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission o BFM 89.9, DJs Ezra Zaid and Umapagan for their interview.
It is a deliberate Kurang Ajar!
Ezra Zaid should be investigated under Sedition Act because of deliberating using the social media and internet to continuously mock the ‘kalimah Allah’ issue, where the Courts of Appeal unanimously decided on 14 October 2013 for the Home Minister’s decision to ban the Catholic Herald.
Coincidentally, this Youtube recording was aired by Popteevee the day after Ezra Zaid was called in to be interviewed and his statement recorded by MCMC officers. Popteevee is associated with BFM 89.9 and Ezra Zaid and Umapagan Ampikaikapan are not only regulars on The Effing Show, they are also key persons behind it.
This is not the first time Ezra Zaid, who is the son of Former Cabinet Minister turned failed PKR politician Dato’ Zaid Ibrahim, is in hot soup. He was charged for by Syariah Court for publishing the controversial book by Irshad Manji.

PETALING JAYA: A director of a publishing company was charged at the Lower Syariah Court here with publishing the controversial book titled ‘Allah, Kebebasan dan Cinta’ (Allah, Liberty and Love) by author Irshad Manji last May.
Mohd Ezra Mohd Zaid, 30, was also charged with an alternative charge of distributing the book to Silverfish Books Sdn Bhd and to an individual named Faisal Mustaffa.
In the second alternative charge, Mohd Ezra was said to have been in possession of 180 copies of the book.
He was charged under Section 16 of the Syariah Criminal Offences (Selangor) Enactment, in his capacity as director and major shareholder of ZI Publications Sdn Bhd.
He was alleged to have committed the offences at his office in Merchant Square, Jalan Tropicana Selatan 1 near here, in May last year.
Mohd Ezra, who was dressed in a dark suit yesterday, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Selangor syariah head of prosecution Abdul Shukor Abdul Hamid urged the court to compel the accused to explain why he did not turn up in court to face the charges on Nov 29, which resulted in an arrest warrant being issued on him.
Mohd Ezra’s lawyer Zulkifli Che Yong explained that his client did not know the exact date he had to appear in court, and asked the court for forgiveness.
Syarie judge Saharuddin Selamat then advised Mohd Ezra to meet court obligations in the future.
The judge allowed bail of RM1,000 with one surety and fixed May 9 for mention.
Mohd Ezra faces a fine of up to RM3,000 or a jail term up to two years, or both, if found guilty.
MCMC, please do what the law required you to do. Since a Police report already been made, please get the CCID do a thorough investigation on the subject matter. The will and emotions of the majority, principles and value system of the Federal Constitution and society are being subjected to be mocked and insulted by this man, on the ‘kalimah Allah’ again.
