The FijiFirst General Secretary Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has rubbished comments made about him by NFP member and former provisional candidate Feroz Mohammed and NFP candidate Faizal Koya.
Sayed-Khaiyum says that Feroz Mohammed has said that he has become a Hindu and Faizal Koya had stated that more portfolios are being given to the Attorney General and why can’t Hindus take up these portfolios.
He says that people should not fall for this sort of games as they should not stick to a single issue.
Although an email where Mohammed had said this was sent by Sayed-Khaiyum to NFP Leader, Biman Prasad, NFP’s former provisional candidate, Feroz Mohammed is now denying the allegations.
Sayed‑Khaiyum had earlier written to Professor Biman Prasad on what he will do about bigoted statements being made by Mohammed.
In his letter which was also sent to the media, Sayed‑Khaiyum said that he has already brought this to Professor Prasad’s attention previously, as a matter of courtesy, after one of the Parliamentary sittings.
Sayed‑Khaiyum had said to Prasad that it is apparent that he did not do anything the first time and the provisional candidate has continued down this bigoted path with impunity.
NFP Leader Biman Prasad had also stated that the party advises the Attorney General that he is welcome to take appropriate action on his allegations following the exchange of private emails to a number of individuals by Feroz Mohammed.
Prasad says he has questioned Mohammed and he totally denies that he wrote what Sayed‑Khaiyum is alleging.
