Lecturer lodges report, accuses Yeoh of proselytisation
Universiti Utara Malaysia lecturer Kamarul Zaman Yusoff has today lodged a police report against Selangor speaker Hannah Yeoh for allegedly driving a "Christian agenda".
In his report lodged at the Changlun police station, the political science lecturer said Yeoh did so through her book "Becoming Hannah: A Personal Journey by Hannah Yeoh" published on January 2015.
"I was shocked to find that this book contained parables and excerpts from the Bible. I believe this book is an attempt to persuade, influence or incite non-Christians including Muslims to embrace Christianity or become inclined towards Christianity," he said in his police report.
His said this breaches Section 4(1)(a) of Selangor's Non-Islamic Religions (Control of Propagation Amongst Muslims) Enactment 1998 which bars proselytisation to Muslims.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
