Muslim group claims Hindu temple renovation ‘disrespects’ Malaysia’s ‘Islamic’ status

Yeah, because Islam is so tolerant and loving and all that stuff.  Malaysia along with Indonesia is fast being taken over by hard core Islamists.  Pretty soon the Muslim Ummah will control a huge section of the south west Pacific region.  Persecution of Christians and all the other minorities are now experiencing the worst persecution in the history of those countries.

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 31 — A RM10 million budget to renovate a Hindu temple in Klang, Selangor has drawn the ire of Muslim activists who today claimed  the project promotes “infidel religions” and jeopardises Malaysia’s position as an “Islamic country”.

Ikatan Muslimin Malaysia (ISMA) said the Sri Sundaraja Perumal temple renovation, if allowed to proceed, would lower Malaysia’s image as a modern “Islamic country” in the eyes of Muslim tourists—especially those from the Middle East.

“A project like that has gone beyond the Constitution’s meaning which guarantees freedom of religion because it has exceeded the Constitution’s provision which promises the right to practise a religion,” said ISMA president Abdullah Zaik Abdul Rahman in a statement.

“The Prime Minister has pledged to uphold and raise the syiar (glory) of Islam. Any desire to renovate holy sites over what is necessary, such as under the name of tourist attraction goes against that pledge.”
