The bombing of a night spot in Puchong last month marks a watershed in Daesh's influence in Malaysia. It is the terrorist group's first successful attack on Malaysian soil. According to multiple reports over the past two years, the Malaysian police had arrested more than 160 people suspected of having ties to Daesh. Dr. Maszlee Malik, an assistant professor at the International Islamic University, explains how pervasive the Daesh threat is in Malaysia. Dr. Maszlee researches the intersection of politics and religion, and recently wrote about his experience working with Daesh-linked detainees at the Sungai Buloh prison.
