Yes Nazri, It is Too Late for Barisan

“It’s too late. I’ve mentioned it many times,” the minister in charge of law and parliamentary affairs Nazri Aziz said when asked his opinion on a dialogue to resolve dilemma.

“It was the failure of the rundingan that resulted in the matter being brought to court,” he pointed out.

“It’s not the fault of the government. Let it be known that it was Tan Sri Pakiam, not the government, who brought the matter to court,” Nazri stressed.

The Archbishop of Kuala Lumpur, Reverend Murphy Pakiam representing the Roman Catholic Church had taken the federal government to court after the home minister banned the church newspaper from publishing the word “Allah” three years ago.

Nazri has to be corrected on the failure of dialogue to resolve the issue. Barisan government has never been supportive of any interfaith dialogue. Previous dialogues were met with hostile disruptions and protests.
