Bible-burning 'plan': Police told to step up security
Anonymous #19098644: There appears to be an intentional, systematic plan to cause disunity and unrest by subversive elements. Starting with Perkasa's seditious call to burn bibles and now followed by the leaflet about the Sunday ‘Bible-burning festival'.
This incident cannot happen if it is not condoned or supported by the ruling regime. The objective is to create unrest and conditions to declare an emergency, which will be used to suppress opponents of the BN.
Mirror On The Wall: Why does it have to take Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng to direct the police to step up security on such an egregious matter?
Aren't the police are supposed to be pro-active and swing into action the minute the report was lodged?
The inaction of the federal leaders who have yet to even say something, much less do anything, speaks for itself.
Dude: If BN wants to be voted in, it simply has to show that it is a political party for all Malaysians. Religious-wise or otherwise.
At the moment, it is obvious that BN is playing the racial and religious card. If BN is a party that is good for the country, every Malaysian, irrespective of race, will support it.
Obviously, it has shown otherwise on so many issues, including this bible-burning controversy. By the way, I am not a Christian.
Myop101: The church grows under persecution. Let it be known that we will not repay violence with violence but with love and prayers. But come GE13, we will know what we should do.
Dont Just Talk: Ibrahim Ali is only good at talking as he outsources to others to do his dirty job.
Let Perkasa burn the Holy Bible if they have the gall to do so, then you will find more Christians voting for Pakatan. Just do it, Ibrahim Ali. Don't just talk.
Anon 1: I wonder whether the plan is to create chaos and a bloodbath, Kampung Medan-style, so that the dictators can declare emergency rule and delay elections. It's not beyond them to come up with this.
Hopefully the Fire Department can strangle these lunatics with their hoses.
Xiao Zhu: Strange, why do it in Penang? Another excuse to take over the state (through emergency rule)?
2zzzxxx: Imagine, if someone were to replace the word 'Bible' in the leaflet with the name of another holy book.
Perkasa and Umno bigots will go completely amok. Clearly, Umno is trying hard to divert attention from the royal commission of inquiry (RCI) in Sabah and other issues.
Changenow: Let them burn the Bible in lorry loads. They have after all burnt a church before. That's their mentality.
The sanctity of Islam gets tainted by the acts of these cheap politicians. I have yet to come across a god who instructs his followers to fight people of another religion.
Surprisingly, there is no response from elected government leaders such as the home minister, and non-Muslim parties - the MCA or MIC.
Goat: If the Christians fall into this trap, then God save them. Ibrahim Ali is a paid servant to divert the public's attention from the Sabah RCI on illegal immigrants.
The Christians should remain calm - if they want to burn the Holy Book, let them, they will eventually pay for it.
Omega: Calm down, all good followers of religion know that it is more important to have the essence of the Almighty in their hearts instead of in books.
Those who publicly burn holy books do not understand this and make themselves look silly and sinister.
Anonymous #85701391: If Umno-BN claims that they have nothing to do with Ibrahim Ali/Perkasa, now is the time to prove it.
All it needs to do is; don't interfere with the police, allow them to do their job. Also instruct the attorney-general to go on leave immediately and Umno-BN might still have hopes in the coming GE.
If Ibrahim Ali/Perkasa is allowed to continue with its lunatic acts, the objective of Umno-BN is then clear - to create chaos. The Umno-BN government will then have a valid reason to dissolve Parliament and declare an emergency.
Umno will then continue to rule with its Mickey Mouse government with a selected group of tainted BN leaders.
Little Hantu: The only way to rid of this problem is to vote BN out. Isn't it scary that the PM visits Gaza to get support from Muslim voters in Malaysia while Ibrahim Ali threatens to burn the Bible?
Anonymous_40f4: The 1Malaysia PM as usual won't comment. He is busy with his public relation exercise in Gaza, using taxpayers money to fool the Muslims.
AngryBird: Perkasa chief and Pasir Mas MP Ibrahim Ali should be arrested and charged with sedition. If the police don't do that, then it is crystal clear they practice double standards.
Anonymous #89734714: Ibrahim Ali, let me ask you. If you are not trying to hurt the non-Muslims or Christians, then who are you trying to hurt by your Bible-burning remarks?
Arrest him and put him in jail and throw away the keys.
