Selangor state assembly Speaker Hannah Yeoh has once again been accused of propagating Christianity in her book 'Becoming Hannah'. The accusation is among several grievances laid out in a police report lodged by a group of 15 Muslim NGOs. – The Malaysian Insight pic by Seth Akmal, September 24, 2017.

SOME 15 Muslim groups in Penang cried foul today over a three-year-old video and article on Christianity, alleging it was the work of extreme Christian evangelists out to incite people to invade and take over the country.

The groups, which include Jaringan Muslimin Pulau Pinang (JMPP), Pekida, Perkasa, and Penang PAS, also claimed that a three-year-old video titled “Message to the Malaysian Church 2014”, which can be viewed on YouTube, contained “seditious” elements.

  • "Other religions must be harmonious with Islam and Muslims." How? If an evangelist urges Christians to pray for the nation, how is that bad? And on the question of "Whose God" Well, Hannah prays to the God of the bible. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Is there another God? Didn't Mohamed pray to the same God? The question that begs to be asked is, which God do these imbeciles pray to if its not the same God as Hannah?

  • Is any anybody in th opposition parties who have the balls to lodge a police report against the 15 Muslim groups who are purposely digging out old materials to create and incite racial unity. High time that the nons stop taking this nonscences from the retards who are just on the purpose of stirring shits. Enough is enough and lets have non political NGOs sitting down with the police force on putting such religious incitement to rest. It does not matter from which religion that is causing the anxiety and let the law takes effect, but now we are seeing mostly from such sponsored group of UmnoBN with the agenda to create a commotions.

  • I find the video made abroad somewhat offensive and fundamentalist. BUT my perspective is why go after Christians when there is so much not addressed let alone action taken .... by Muslims? Let's start with the very provocative calling of us non Muslims as "Kaffir harbi" by the Mufti of Pahang. I understand the state law against propagation. But that national statement, which was reiterated.... was fine?

  • Hunting for controversy to sensationalise because they have nothing else to offer is just politics of hate.
