Firdaus Wong lodges whopping 6 police reports in a single day; warns detractors of more to come

WHISTLE-BLOWING is surely not a calling for the faint-hearted as renowned Muslim convert preacher Firdaus Wong Wai Hung finds out.

The man instrumental in exposing socks bearing Allah inscription which rocks the country at a Bandar Sunway KK Super Mart outlet on March 13 was kept at bay yesterday (March 27) by having to lodge six police reports at the Wangsa Maju police station in a day.

The police reports lodged against five individuals will be a start to clamp down on slanderers, according to the Multiracial Reverted Muslims (MRM) president.

“Finished lodging six police reports against five individuals at the Wangsa Maju Police Station as a start. Maybe more reports will be made on all defamers,” he penned on his Facebook page.

“There is also a report of death threat against me and my family members. One is a hit threat report and the rest are for slandering me.”

Firdaus went on to remind his detractors that he has no fear for whatever threat and slander levelled at him and that he “would proceed with his dakwah (preaching) cause”.

“I’ve often advise friends not to act outside the boundaries of religion and law, hence let me walk the talk as well by allowing the authorities to take action against them all,” he asserted.

“God willing, I will also follow up with a defamation suit against them. Jazakumullah Khairan (May the Almighty recompense you with goodness) for the prayers and support of all friends.”

Recall that Firdaus had on Monday (March 25) has pursued a legal action against former Tanah Rata state assemblyman Chiong Yoke Kong for insinuating that the former has “clear-cut involvement” in the sock-gate controversy.

In a Facebook post, Chiong who was a former editor-in-chief of DAP mouthpiece Rocket has claimed that the controversy could have been resolved in a more amicable manner had Firdaus immediately lodged a police report upon coming across with the “problematic socks”.

In a related development, Firdaus also took offence on the individual who uploaded on social media his involvement in a financial scandal.

“For everyone’s information, I vehemently deny the slander and have already filed a police report in July 2022 against the Telegram group that spread the slander,” suggested Jinjang-born Firdaus who converted to Islam on Aug 10, 2005.

“After I challenged and informed the account owner that I will file a lawsuit against him, he deleted his defamatory post.”

In addition, Firdaus claimed that he has also filed a defamation suit related to those defamations and that the case is still on-going.

InsyaAllah, I’ll update from time to time when the full trial of the case that has been set by the court begins,” he asserted. “We have also identified several other individuals and are in the process of taking legal action against those who started, shared or spread this defamation.”

Claiming that this could be a “concerted character assassination” against him, Firdaus reiterated that “the ultimate lesson for people who like to spread slander or being stubborn is by suing”.

“Courage for truth. They hide behind social media accounts to spread slander,” he asserted. “MRM’s account was audited by the largest local audit company which is also among my witnesses in a defamation suit against former employees who defamed me.” – March 28, 2024
