A politician from a Malaysian Islamic political party has urged the Asian country's Muslims not to get involved with the so-called Islamic State adding that all religions prohibit extremism, reported The Malay Mail.
Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, the deputy president of the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party, issued his warning this week, adding that the Islamic State's actions violated Islamic teachings.
He said that Islam was about saving individuals and nations.
The politician made his comments following the terrorist group's grenade attack on a bar in Kuala Lumpur on June 28 which injured eight people. It is the first attack by the group in Malaysia.
A study last year showed 11 percent of Malaysians were Islamic State sympathizers, stated the report.
