PETALING JAYA: Muslim leaders, NGOs and moderate Malaysians have criticised the Sunday protest against the placing of a cross on a church in Taman Medan here.

Perlis mufti Datuk Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin said the protection of all places of worship “is a part of jihad, and Islam does not condone any behaviour contrary to that”.
