GEORGE TOWN: A controversial rapper has been remanded for four days beginning today to facilitate investigation on a video clip shot at a mosque in Tanjung Bunga, here, which allegedly insulted Islam.
The remand order was issued by the Assistant Registrar of the Subordinate Courts (Criminal) Tajuddin Ahmad Zaini.
The 33-year-old local singer and director arrived at the remand division at 10.23am and came out from the division at 10.41am.
The singer was detained at the KL International Airport as he arrived from abroad at 3.30pm, yesterday.
The 4.05-minute clip had become viral after four men in the video sang a Mandarin song which was believed to have insulted Islam, leading to several police reports being lodged by several groups including non-governmental organisations.
