Controversial entrepreneur, Muhammad Sajjad Kamaruz Zaman or better known as Nur Sajat will be featured on Hollywood’s leading talk show, The Ellen Show.
Nur Sajat, 36, will go to the United States in January as part of a show sponsored by Hollywood comedian Ellen DeGeneres.
She made the announcement over her TikTok account on the spur of the moment. Appeared without make-up in a 44-second video to address queries from fans about her plans to visit Singapore, she stated, “The Ellen Show, a popular Hollywood talk show, contacted me for an interview. I’ve also gotten better at conversing with white folks. So, that’s my job, I’m going to fly, fly, fly!”
The transgender entrepreneur has been living in Australia since October 18 after receiving political asylum and yesterday, Nur Sajat was interviewed by BBC News.
In an interview with the BBC, Nur Sajat stressed that she would not return to Malaysia to be oppressed and could not be herself.
Nur Sajat was charged with a crime under Section 10 of the Syariah Crimes (Selangor) Enactment 1995, which is to insult or cause Islam to be looked down upon, before the Shah Alam Syariah High Court on January 6.
At 7.30 p.m. on February 23, 2018, at her beauty premise, Nur Sajat Beutician, she allegedly committed the act during the Yasin recitation ritual and solat hajat.
She is believed to have fled to Thailand when the country was under the Rehabilitation Movement Control Order (PKPP) phase in March.
The singer of the song Makhluk Pendosa then flew to Australia last October after being detained by Thai Immigration on September 9 for entering the country illegally.
Later, Nur Sajat was charged in court, but was released on September 10 on bail of RM8,343 by a local.
In an interview with the BBC, Nur Sajat stressed that she will not return to Malaysia because she feels oppressed and cannot be herself.
“I will not return to Malaysia because there is no peace. When I am in Australia, I am more free as a transwoman,” she said.
