A local company which sold flags associated with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terror group has come under scrutiny.
The owner of Albenyahya Enter-prise admitted to ordering about 20 such flags in July, during Ramadan, to sell at a market. The remainder were offered via the firm’s Facebook page
When online sites highlighted this in reports, company owner Syed Mohammad Faisal filed a police complaint against “baseless accusations” that his company had links with terrorism.
By yesterday afternoon, he had taken down his firm’s Facebook page.
… Buying their flag is comparable to football fans buying team jerseys to show their support and solidarity, said Muhammad Saiful Alam Shah Sudiman, associate research fellow at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies.
