STORY l Distributed Bible To Students Get Attention Of Many Parties

Recently, we have new issue in religious when a man distributed bibles to student at Bukit Mertajam High School. 

Photographs of the foreigners loitering in the area went viral on social media. On friday, last week 2 November 2018, raising concern among the people.

It was understood that several men were spotted distributing the book at the main and back gates of the school.

The incident went viral after some of the parents uploaded the contents of the book on social media.

The devotional book titled ‘Rhapsody of Realities’ by Chris Oyakhilome contains verses from the Bible.

According to a Facebook post by Penang Kini, an Muslim was approached by the group but he refused to take the book, saying he was a Muslim.

Despite that, the group tried to persuade him by saying that it could even be read by Muslims.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa, in confirming by dated 7 Nov 2018, said his department was also getting more details on the incident.

Mujahid said so far, he had been briefed by the Penang state Islamic Religious Council (MAINPP), Penang State Education Department and the Bukit Mertajam Department of Parliament on the matter.

It was reported that police had received three reports from two non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and parents of a student.

8 Nov 2018 - Today, i'm still follow this issue when six non-governmental organisations (NGO) lodged a police report on allegations that Bibles were distributed to students.

The report was jointly made at the Sentul district police headquarters by Pertubuhan Martabat Jalinan Muhibbah Malaysia (MJMM), Ikatan Rakyat Insan Muslim Malaysia (IRIMM), Amanah Rahsia Cekal (ARC), Gerak Kerja Gabungan Ayahanda Selangor (Gegas), Reformis and Kipidap

Meanwhile, MJMM president Abdul Rani Kulup Abdullah said the act of distributing the Bibles was rude and disrespectful of the Muslim community in Malaysia.

"They were allegedly distributing dictionaries, but turns out the books were Bibles. The authorities must take stern action against this sensitive matter," he said.

Based on my opinion, when i refer in Article 11 (4), freedom of religion ;
"State law and in respect of the Federal Territories of Kuala Lumpur, Labuan and Putrajaya, federal law may control or restrict the propagation of any religious doctrine or belief among persons professing the religion of Islam"
What i means is, who parties distribute article, book or other source to Muslim religion, an offense under article 11(4) in Federal Constitution.

Malaysian still recognizes freedom of other religions to practice what they believe. The limit of freedom, they cannot teach what they believe or trust in they religion to Islam religion. 

If the person breaking the limit, means that the person already breaking the law and can be into the jail. 

Finally, Malaysia is a multicultural and multiconfessional country, whose official religion is Islam in Malaysian. Malaysian also have many race, religious, ethic, and language. What we can do is, respect other religion or what they believe.
