The Christian Federation of Malaysia unreservedly condemns all attacks on places of worship since 8 January 2010.
We are aghast at the on-going desecration of places of worship by acts of arson and vandalism the latest of which affected the two suraus in Muar which occurred yesterday.
We urge the police to investigate and swiftly bring to justice such perpetrators of violence upon all houses of worship be it churches, temples, gurdwaras, mosques and suraus.
We call on all Malaysians to be watchful of suspicious people hanging around places of worship and report them to the police.
We are very glad for the show of solidarity amongst people of different religious faiths as they support each other through these days of crises wrought by such despicable people who plan such actions and carry them out.
Let us remain calm and not allow the forces of evil to destroy the peace and harmony which we all share as Malaysians.
The Church remains committed to praying for peace, harmony and the well-being of the nation. It is our hope that a reasonable resolution be found in the near future.
