I WILL not apologise, said PAS MP Nik Muhammad Zawawi Salleh when asked about demands from Christian groups that he do so over his recent remarks on the Bible.

The Pasir Puteh MP was accused of insulting Christians when he said in Parliament last week that the religion’s sacred book is “distorted”.

  • Don't waste time with bigots like this.
    He was born Muslim.
    That's all he sees.
    In his eyes, those born outside his religion are all wrong or subordinate

  • Is charging with sedition, those who insult other religions only applicable for certain religions?
    Can the IGP please comment?
    i'm not expecting the useless AG to say anything.

  • The only time that one will know whether ones religion is true or not is when the person is no longer in this world. Who is Zawawi to say that another religion is distorted? If Zawawi is truly a man of God, he should be able to respect other peoples religion. But needless to say, he is certainly not a man of God based on his arrogance and disrespectful of others.
