Selangor PAS Youth wing also lodged a report on the video, as they believe the remarks made can disturb the society’s harmony.

“The driver had made provocative, false and slanderous remarks against Islam in the country,” the state youth wing’s information chief Suffi Kamar said after making the report.

He also said that the driver who can be regarded as a mini ambassador of the country, should not be making such misleading statements about Malaysia to tourists.
