PETALING JAYA: Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has labelled the Selangor Islamic Religious Department’s (Jais) raid on the Malaysian Bible Society as “drastic”.
“Such drastic action appears anti-Christian. It causes tension. Why such high-handed methods from the religious department?” he said after a talk at the Centre for Reform, Democracy and Social Initiatives yesterday.
Anwar said that if Jais felt any laws had been broken, the religious enforcers should have “called up the relevant parties to get an explanation” rather than simply raiding the premises.
He also called on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to address the issue.
