Let's face it, there is no such thing as "moderate" in the vocab of UMNO anymore. To hold an anti-Christian seminar during this season of Christmas is most unthinkable.
Najib and all his pretenses about being moderate is nothing but one HUGE lie to mislead the rakyat and the world. His odious administration thrives only in corruption and endorsing racial & religious intolerance!!!No wonder, The Washington Post called him the Champion of Double-talks.
Sarawak PKR chairman Baru Bian has urged Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to “stop his religious (moderation) pretence” and “throw the 1Malaysia lie into the bin”, for failing to end Christian-bashing in the country.
The old boy of Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM), outraged that his alma mater had the gall to hold another anti-Christian seminar after the outcry last year, said the moderate Islamic country that Najib tried to portray to the world was “long dead”.
Baru said anti-Christian programmes “whipped up feelings of insecurity and fear in Muslim youths by demonising Christianity”.
“What started as Umno using Christianity as the bogeyman to divide and rule the people is leading to the radicalisation of Islam in this country, and the consequences will be catastrophic,” the Ba Kelalan assemblyman said.
He said the anti-Christian seminar the university held recently was also “odious and dangerous” and the university’s continued programme was due to the failure of the attorney-general (A-G) and police to act on it.
“Why did the A-G not pursue the matter last year?” Baru questioned the lack of action on last year’s seminar on the use of the word “Allah” and Christology.
The seminar featured speakers from Indonesia where the audience was told that undercover Christian priests had been sent to Malaysia under different guises, including working with Muslim children as football coaches, to proselytise and convert Muslims.
“It was reported then speakers at that May 2014 talk claimed Christians were betraying God unless they converted to Islam and called the New Testament gospels ‘fake’ as Jesus Christ was not divine.
“This is clearly blasphemous against Christians and the A-G had no reason to stop investigations.
“No wonder UiTM is not bothered about all the police reports made against it last year.”
Baru said the A-G’s failure, combined with the reported presence of a police officer at the latest seminar, it was no wonder the university continue to hold these seminars with impunity.
He said what appalled him even more was that instead of warning them against holding the seminar, the police sent a speaker to the event.
“What does the police force have to do with strengthening the ‘akidah’ of Muslims?
“They are supposed to keep law and order, not dabble in religious instruction.
