PETALING JAYA: Selangor Perkasa said its members have been told not to hold protests outside churches and to respect the right of Christians to perform prayers at their houses of worship.
Its chief Abu Bakar Yahya said the movement would, however, continue to hold demonstrations and other forms of protests aimed at urging the authorities to take action against those who had flouted the state ban on the use of the word Allah by non-Muslims.
“We will continue to protest until there is action taken by the authorities, but in no way is any Perkasa member allowed to hold any demonstrations in front of churches,” said Abu Bakar.
He said Perkasa wanted authorities to take action in accordance with the Selangor Non-Islamic Religions (Control of Propagation Among Muslims) Enactment 1988.
Meanwhile, Selangor Umno chief Datuk Seri Noh Omar said it was their right if Muslims wanted to gather in protest against Christians using the term Allah.
“They can gather in other places but they cannot gather in churches to protest,” Noh said.
