GEORGE TOWN: Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward and help shed light on “attacks” against places of worship here.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Bakri Zinin said it was difficult to obtain leads without assistance from the public.
“We should be careful when dealing with such issues. We are trying our best to ensure such incidents will not recur.
“We have engaged representatives from places of worship to see how best we can assist them in handling the issue,” he said after a press conference at the state police contingent headquarters yesterday.
Those with information can call the Rakan COP hotline (04-229 5900) or any police station.
On Sunday, an assistant imam of the Cherok Tok Kun Atas mosque in Machang Bubok, Bukit Mertajam, spotted what looked like pork at the mosque entrance.
Saad Arop, 78, found the meat when he was about to perform morning prayers.
He lodged a police report after he became suspicious that the meat could be pork. The meat has been sent to the Veterinary Department for verification.
State MCA chief Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun in a statement said the party condemned such a cowardly act.
She proposed that the Federal Government look into the incident and act against the culprits to restore social harmony.
