A Facebook page Serambi Politik, has called on Malays to boycott the clinic of Dr. Nur Azah on the basis that she and her husband are Shia Muslims. Stating that Shias have left the fold of Islam, the page calls for a boycott of all Shias, even, the page states, if they are Malay.

The page has a following of over 30,000 and echoes the recent rise in sectarian hatred being levelled at Muslims who are deemed to be Shia in Malaysia, with certain states gazetting laws to criminalise adherence to Jafari fiqh.
