Muhyiddin’s Christianisation agenda claim is dangerous, says CCM
(The Star) – The Council of Churches of Malaysia (CCM) has condemned a statement made by former prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin accusing Christians to be in cahoots with a group of Jews to promote and Christianise Malaysia.
CCM general secretary Rev Jonathan Jesudas said the statement was not only untrue but also irresponsible for a politician of his standing to make such a statement on social media which can be viewed by the public.
“We live in a multi-religious and multiracial country and the sensitivity of each community must be taken into account when addressing public forums.
“Such statements, carelessly uttered, have a tendency to create racial and religious tension and strife,” said Jesudas in a statement on Thursday (Nov 17).
“This is to ensure that such a blatant disregard of the truth and of the sensitivities of the various religions are not condoned or repeated,” said Jesudas.
In a video posted on TikTok, Muhyiddin could be seen giving a speech where he told the public not to vote for Pakatan Harapan as the opposition was being backed by a group of Jews and Christians which were pushing for a Christianisation agenda in Malaysia.
“Pakatan Harapan is a huge danger.
“I saw a video where a group of Jews were talking about Malaysia and were praying for the country to fall into the hands of the opposition, which has been sponsoring these groups of Jews and Christians.
“For me this is dangerous. Is a Christianisation process going to happen?” Muhyiddin said in the clip.
