Yesterday, de facto Islamic affairs minister Mujahid Yusof Rawa revealed that Tabung Haji now had an RM4.1 billion deficit.
As a result of this deficit, the pilgrimage fund had been paying dividends since 2014 through alleged creative accounting.
The revelation came two days after Umno and PAS joined forces with Muslim rights NGOs to protest against Icerd.
This despite Putrajaya saying that it would not go ahead with ratifying the treaty which Malay-rights groups claimed to infringe on their constitutional rights.
Raja Kamarul Bahrin (above) said the losses suffered by Tabung Haji and other public institutions were tragedies for poor Malays and Muslims caused by the abuse of power by other Malays and Muslims.
"This is not the fault of the UN, the Chinese or the Indians."This is a tragedy of Malay Muslims themselves betraying Malay Muslims and Malay Muslims from Umno and PAS staying quiet because they are not interested in defending their brothers," he said.
Umno deputy president Mohamad Hasan has called for a royal commission of inquiry into the Tabung Haji scandal and this has been supported by several quarters
