CFM comments by CFM chairman on fire-bombing of a church - 27 jan 2014

  1. 1. CHRISTIAN FEDERATION OF MALAYSIA (PERSEKUTUAN KRISTIAN MALAYSIA) 26 Jalan Universiti, 46200 Petaling Jaya, Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia Telefon / Faks : + 60 3 7957 1457 Email: cfmsia@yahoo.co.uk 27th January 2014 Comments below are made by CFM chairman Rev. Dr. Eu Hong Seng on the latest fire-bombing of a church in Penang. 1. CFM denounces the heinous act of the fire-bombing of a church in the early morning of Monday in Penang. This follows another act of mischief by the placing of banners with provocative statements in five churches on Penang Island and in Butterworth as was reported in the media. 2. We are happy to note that the police are on top of the situation. 3. These acts of provocation to cause chaos and ethnic enmity are aimed at the self-interest gains of those who have organised it. 4. CFM advises Christians and the general public not to be alarmed by nor over-react to such acts. Should these attacks be politically-motivated and calculated to try to ignite an escalation in inter-racial and inter-religious tensions, then all the more reason that we do well to be wise and measured in our response. 5. We call on all peace-loving Malaysians to stand firm and united and to oppose such acts of desecration and criminal damage on a place of religious worship. Issued on behalf of Rev. Dr. Eu Hong Seng Tan Kong Beng Executive Secretary 1
