Many Faiths, One Nation: our vision for Malaysia


We refer to our media release of January 22 2010 in which we declared that “any violence on a place of worship and prayer of any religion (is) a sin of the highest order…”

It is disappointing that such sins continue unabated.

The latest incidents today at the two mosques along Jalan Kelang Lama, Kuala Lumpur demonstrate how sick perpetrators of such acts can be and to what extent they are willing to go to cause hurt and harm to religious communities. Their end is to drive a wedge between religious communities in the country.

We who are law-abiding citizens must not allow them to succeed in their wicked mission.

Let us not speculate about the identities of the culprits until the police and the courts have done their work. Let us stand together and resist such people.

The Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism condoles with Muslims, Christians and Sikhs whose places of worship and prayer have been so rudely desecrated.

May God protect us and the country from evil-doers.

Rev. Dr Thomas Philips,

MCCBCHST President
