GEORGE TOWN – Fifteen Muslim non-governmental organisations (NGO’s) lodged a police report against Selangor State Assembly speaker Hannah Yeoh for allegedly preaching about Christianity to the people in the country.
Amongst the NGOs which lodged the report were Jaringan Muslimin Pulau Pinang (JMPP), Ikatan Muslimin Malaysia (ISMA) and Gabungan Pelajar Melayu Semenanjung (GPMS).
JMPP chairman Mohamed Hafiz Mohamed Nordin said that Hannah had the intention to preach Christianity by inviting Oversea Church Fellows (OCF) as per written in her book ‘Becoming Hannah’.
“What does she mean by building the Kingdom of God? Which God is she referring to? We believe it is an attempt to spread the Christian beliefs to others.
“She also should not use the state legislative assembly as a platform to do so. She better stop. With this report, we are calling upon the police to investigate and take action against her,” he said after lodging the report at Bayan Baru Police Station here today.
The group also lodged reports urging the authorities to investigate an allegedly seditious video uploaded on Youtube in 2014.
Hafiz said that the seven minutes and eight seconds video titled ‘Message to Malaysian Church 2014’ was made by a foreign Christian Evangelist movement led by Aseef Hadalah, who allegedly challenged Islam as the official religion of the country.
The video shows Aseef delivering a talk where he said: “There are people called missionaries in other nation, yet the general will of God for all of us in Malaysia is to invade this nation with Kingdom of God. We are called to bring down God’s principle and cultures into Malaysia.”
The video was believed to have been uploaded from a talk by Aseef at unidentified location overseas.
“The verse is clearly to provoke Christians in the country to ‘invade’ our country under the orders of their God. This is a very seditious statement which could bring disharmony to the country.
“We will approach relevant authorities including Islamic Development Department (Jakim) to ensure Aseef does not enter our country to spread such hatred to the people,” he added.
