Muslims in Moderate Malaysia Firebomb 3 More Christian Churches
Muslims in moderate Malaysia firebombed 3 more Christian Churches today following the 4 churches that were torched on Friday. The Muslims are upset after a court decision overturned a government order banning non-Muslims from using the word “Allah” in their prayers and literature.
FOX News reported:
Firebombs were thrown at three more churches in Malaysia on Sunday and another was splashed with black paint, the latest in a series of assaults on Christian houses of worship following a court decision allowing non-Muslims to use “Allah” to refer to God.
Despite the attacks, thousands of Christians nationwide attended Sunday services and prayed for national unity and an end to the violence.
The unprecedented attacks have set off a wave of disquiet among Malaysia’s minority Christians and strained their ties with the majority Malay Muslims. About 9 percent of Malaysia’s 28 million people are Christian, most of whom are ethnic Chinese or Indian. Muslims make up 60 percent of the population and most of them are ethnic Malays.
Religious minorities have often complained about what they say is institutionalized religious discrimination here…
Four churches were hit by gasoline bombs on Friday and Saturday. No one was hurt and all suffered little damage, except the Metro Tabernacle Church. Parishioners there moved services after fire gutted the first floor. The other churches held regular services Sunday.
