kOTA BARU: Pas spiritual leader Nik Aziz Nik Mat said that the burning of churches is a sin just like in the case of the cow head protest where feelings of people were hurt.
“If we burn their churches down, we would hurt their feelings and this is a big sin (dosa) that we need to answer in the hereafter. The same with the ‘cow-head’ protest. It’s a sin,” he told party meeting of religious scholars.
Asking them to remember the cow head protest in Selangor a few months ago, he said: “ We were lucky because the Hindus did not retaliate although cows are considered sacred to them.”
The Kelantan Mentri Besar said that when the religious sensitivity is lost, there will be no stopping the people in attacking the churches.
“ More so, when Umno is the one who made the people act that way,” he said.
Eventually, he said, these perpetrators would become ruthless as they no longer care for the feelings of other Malaysians.
“They (church attackers) will not care if their actions will offend the Christians, and the ‘cow-head’ protestors did not care if they hurt the feelings of all Malaysians,” Niz Aziz said.
