Selangor MCA: Sack Hasan for audio Bible comment

(The Star) – Selangor MCA has challenged Pakatan Rakyat to fire state executive councillor Datuk Dr Hasan Ali for his statement implying that Christians are using audio Bibles to spread their religion to Muslims.

Such accusations could undermine religious harmony, said Selangor MCA secretary Wong Koon Mun.

He added that Dr Hasan should be removed from his post for claiming that solar-powered “hand-held audio Bibles” were being used to convert Muslims.

“Such remarks promote religious polarisation,” he added.

Wong also called on Selangor PAS to refer Dr Hasan to the party’s disciplinary committee.

“The Pakatan Rakyat government should also reprimand Dr Hasan. Or are PAS and its Pakatan Rakyat allies afraid of acting against Dr Hasan?”

Wong also chided Selangor PAS commissioner Dr Abdul Rani Osman for dismissing the issue as a “small matter”.

Dr Hasan told the state assembly on Thursday that the Selangor Islamic Affairs Department (Jais) had found a solar-powered “hand-held audio Bible” used to spread Christianity among Muslims in the state.
