PETALING JAYA: The Selangor Menteri Besar has called for a meeting with relevant authorities to reach a consensus on the issue of bibles seized from the Bible Society of Malaysia (BSM), before seeking a decision from the Sultan of Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah.
In a statement, Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim said that he had requested state secretary Datuk Mohd Khusrin Munawi to call for a meeting with Selangor mufti Datuk Seri Mohd Tamyes Abdul Wahid and state legal advisor Datuk Nik Suhaimi Nik Sulaiman, as well as representatives from the Selangor Islamic Religious Council (Mais) and the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) to discuss the matter next week.
"The state government will try to reach a consensus before bringing the matter up with the Selangor Sultan for a final decision," he said.
Mais and Jais had earlier refused to return the bibles seized from Bible Society of Malaysia's (BSM) office on Jan 2.
Mais' statement came three days after the Attorney-General had declared that there was no case against BSM and the state government ordered for the seized bibles to be returned.
