Outspoken lawyer and social activist Siti Zabedah Kasim, or Siti Kasim, has expressed thanks after her close call with an improvised explosive device (IED) in her car.

Siti Kasim said in a Facebook post that she is grateful to the police for investigating the case and well-wishers who gave her words of encouragement.

At the same time, she took note that many also hoped she had perished.

She is undeterred and will continue to fight for what she believes, despite the ill wishes against her which had been going on for some time.

She also emphasises that she loves her religion and has spoken poorly against it.

Many people uploaded threatening comments, and some want to see me die because they hate me too much and think I am anti-Islam when all of that is a misunderstanding because I am voicing politicians using religion and others.

Siti Kasim on being targeted for her standing up to her convictions.

Meanwhile, Brickfields District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Amihizam Abdul Shukor said the investigation was conducted under Section 7 of the Explosives Act 1957.
