Jamil Khir Requests, Jamil Khir Approves

I realize that there may be people who may not be familiar with Nicki Minaj. So I am sharing her music here, so you too will get to know her!

PAS Youth piled further pressure on Islamic affairs minister Jamil Khir Baharom on Monday, accusing him of further misappropriation of zakat funds to Yayasan Taqwa, a foundation established in 1990 that is tasked to collect and disburse zakat (alms).

According to PAS’ Kamaruzaman Mohamed, on September 17, 2011, Yayasan Taqwa requested for RM1 million from the Federal Territories Islamic Religious Council (MAIWP). And on November 12, 2011, MAIWP approved RM4 million.

The intriguing point is that Jamil Khir is the chairperson of MAIWP and also the trust holder for Yayasan Taqwa. This of course, raises the question of how someone can make a request and approve it himself! And then that million-dollar question: Where has the RM3 million gone to?
