Surau Thrown with Red Paint, Liquor Bottles

(Bernama) – A surau in Taman Pulai Impian, Sikamat near here was thrown with red paint and liquor bottles early today.

The incident was discovered by residents who arrived for Subuh (dawn) prayer, said Taman Pulai Impian Surau committee chairman Mohd Hasbi Ismail.

“I believe the incident could have occurred between 3.30am and 4am and I had lodged a police report,” he told Bernama.

He said the right side of the front wall, floor and glass door were splashed with red paint while broken pieces of four liquor bottles were found in front of the surau.

“I am saddened over the incident as it smeared a place of worship and the sanctity of Ramadan,” he said.

The new surau which is not fenced up was opened on July 24.

“I hope the police will nab those responsible and find out the motive of the attack,” said Mohd Hasbi.
