Do not cross the religion boundary, says Raja Nazrin
IPOH: The Regent of Perak, Raja Dr Nazrin Shah has reminded the people not to cross the religion boundary as it can spark the country's worst tragedy.
"Don't lit religious fire as it can burn you up and destroy the state," he said when opening the State Assembly session at Bangunan Perak Darul Ridzuan here today.
He said of late, non-Muslims have crossed religion boundary by challenging Islamic matters via statements that made fun of Islamic laws and the faith of Muslims.
"Advice to Muslims on their faith and sharia law by Islamic scholars is being questioned and debated openly by non-Muslims.
"This has crossed the religion border. The eqiquette of respecting and non-interfering in the affairs of other religions must be adhered."
Islam's position is contained in the Federal Constitution and should not not be taken literally but interpreted in a holistic manner and linked with other relevant provisions to ensure that the real purpose of these provisions is not manipulated to deny the rights of Muslims.
Raja Nazrin said: "Islam is a protected religion with special and absolute status in the constitution. The provisions and privileges enshrined in the constitution don't make Muslims proud and arrogant towards those of other religions.
"Muslim leaders don't justify this by being extreme, discriminatory, insulting and offensive of other religions or destroy the houses of worship of non-Muslims."
The Regent of Perak said the majority of Muslims in this country were educated to understand the meaning of religion and the sanctity of God. "Because of this, Muslims avoid making comments, open criticism and don't interfere in the practices and rituals of other religions," he added. -- BERNAMA
