Malaysia: Authorities Give Green Light to Anti-Christian ‘Defend Islam’ Rally


Here’s a quick update to this story.  Of course, there was never any doubt that this ‘rally’ would be quickly approved by the Malaysian police.  Even if it hadn’t been approved many would have still gathered anyway.  The only question now is whether or not any Islamist mob-mentality will stoke violent sentiments and lead to anti-Christian aggression …

By Carolyn Hong – “Kuala Lumpur. Malaysian police have issued a permit for a mass gathering of Muslims this Saturday ‘to defend Islam against Christian proselytization’, an event politicians and others fear will stoke religious tension in this multiracial country.

The Himpunan Sejuta Umat, or gathering of one million Muslim faithful, is organized by 25 non-governmental organizations, including the Malay supremacy group Perkasa.

It is calling for a new law to punish those who try to convert Muslims.

The rally comes after a controversial raid in August by the Selangor Islamic authorities on a church dinner attended by Muslims. The Sultan of Selangor later said the authorities did find evidence of attempts to convert Muslims but it was insufficient for legal action.

Many Muslims regard apostasy to be one of the gravest sins.

The organizers of the Himpun rally are not overtly linked to any political party, and appear to be a pressure group like Perkasa, which is pushing the Malay parties in both the government and opposition to adopt its conservative agenda.” Read more.

    everybody has a right to choose his/her own religion. NO government, body, or authority should prevent anyone from changing his/her religion, whether it be christian to muslim, or vice versa. if you use laws to keep people in a religion than what is the point, knowing that they are only in it involuntarily?
