Bishop: Pahang mufti has declared hostilities

Catholic Bishop Emeritus Dr Paul Tan Chee Ing described Pahang mufti Abdul Rahman Osman's designation of those who opposed Islam as kafir harbi as an “ominous development which if not swiftly repudiated constitutes a threat to national security”.

“I know of no statement in recent years, not even the threat to burn the Bible, that constitutes a clear and present danger to national security as this designation by the Pahang mufti as kafir harbi all those who are opposed to Islam,” said the prelate, who is a vocal exponent of human rights issues, particularly those pertaining to freedom of religion.

“Prior to this, it was thought that ony those who fight against Muslims in lands Muslims rule or from territories contiguous with Islamic territories are designated kafir harbi,” opined Bishop Paul.
