Muhyiddin was not referring to Maznah and her dogs video clip - Bernama

Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin was only making a general statement and not specifically referring to the YouTube video clip entitled "Satu Hari di Hari Raya" when he issued a reminder to the people to refrain from touching on the sensitivities of the Muslim community.

Bernama in its earlier report had said the deputy prime minister's statement on Tuesday was referring to the video clip which showed an individual appearing to perform ritual ablutions by washing her hands and feet but then did the same to three dogs.

Muhyiddin in his address at the breaking-of-fast with children from the Anak-Anak Rumah Amal Kasih Bestari in Putrajaya did not also specifically mention that non-Muslims had belittled and mocked Islam, as the report suggested.

What he actually said was: "Certain parties have belittled and mocked our religion lately and hopefully it will not persist as to cause tension, as what is happening in other Islamic countries." - Bernama, August 3, 2013
