一个黑暗的马来西亚。。。。。

这是马来西亚的黑色星期五。。。。

神圣的基督教堂被暴徒连环纵火袭击

这是一个失败的马来西亚。。。。。

如果政府一早设立跨宗教的对话机制,心平气和理性的探讨各宗教分歧和“阿拉”字眼等问题,并展开和平的对话讨论,以寻找解决方案,我们不会有今天火暴的局面。

这是一个分裂的马来西亚。。。。。。

如果政府原意聆听,原意多照顾不同宗教人民的权益, 想想东马的基督教土著同胞们的感受,禁止土著基督徒使用熟悉的『Allah』对上帝祷告是否是公平的?

如果政府不高调的抗拒并挑战高庭的判决,不带头煽动回教徒的反对情绪,不纵容和煽动极端的行为,不激化不同教徒之间的紧张关系,火烧基督教堂的局面肯定不会出现。

我痛心疾首。。。。。

一个Molotov烧毁了几十年来平静的夜晚,四十年来马来西亚从来未曾如此地分裂!

这些暴徒,烧掉了的何止是教堂而已,还烧掉了多元宗教共存的空间,导致社会人心惶惶,罪大恶极!

我庆幸。。。。。。。。。

还好,大马人是爱好和平的。

虽然教堂被烧了,可是全民却与基督社群站在一起,没有跟着暴徒起舞。

昨天的星期五祈祷后的集会说明,大马人-尤其是大多数的回教徒还是理智的。

我们能做些什么?

超过125个来自不同宗教、文化、族群和思想背景的非政府组织已签署以下的联合声明谴责昨天发生的教堂纵火事件,并促请全国人民谴责任何亵渎膜拜场所的行为,并营造一个健康的辩论和对话空间,以处理多元种族、宗教和文化的议题。

欢迎你把这声明转发给热爱和平的大马人和组织,希望各造开始和平对话和共度时艰。 。。。。。。。。。

Joint Statement of Civil Society on 9th January 2010:

Malaysia will not bow to acts of violence

We the undersigned Malaysian civil society groups from different spiritual, cultural and ideological backgrounds condemn unconditionally in the strongest possible terms the arson against at least three churches following the controversy over the use of the word Allah.

We express our solidarity with  the Metro Tabernacle Church at Desa Melawati, Church of the Assumption,  Petaling Jaya and Life Chapel, Petaling Jaya, and other churches that have received threats, and to the Malaysian Christian community at large.

Nothing warrants such deliberately provocative violent acts, amounting to terrorism, on places of worship. Such violence however must not be seen as a communal conflict of Muslims and Christians. It is as much an affront to Islam and to all religions as it is to the Christians.

While we celebrate freedom of expression, no demonstration must be carried out to intimidate others who hold different opinions.

These acts are truly a blot on the image that we promote of ourselves as a harmonious multiracial and diverse society. It is also tantamount to an attack on the cardinal principle of the Rule of Law and the institution of the Judiciary who must at all times be left to decide on a case without fear, favour or intimidation.

We denounce those who shamelessly manipulate ethno-religious sentiments for their political gains. This sad situation has escalated due in part to the irresponsible responses from the Administration which appears to be practicing double standards.

We further deeply regret that in postulating their grievances to advance their agenda, those quarters have sought to convolute the real issues touching on the constitutional right of expression and to practice one’s faith  and, with the aid of certain segments of the media, both mainstream and otherwise.

We expect the police to now pursue the culprits in the serial arson attacks with their highest diligence and professionalism. Until the criminals are brought to book, the image of the Najib Administration and his “1Malaysia” slogan will be associated with violence and terrorism. We however categorically reject the proposed use of ISA against anyone. The arson suspects must be charged and tried in open court to delegitimize their barbaric act.

We call upon all groups with different views on the issue to seek rational dialogue and reach consensus.

No issue is too sensitive for rational debate in a democratic society. The threat of violence should not be used to kill democratic debate.

We call upon all Malaysians to come together collectively:

  • to condemn and denounce acts of desecration of any places of worship, now and in the future;
  • to create a healthy atmosphere for the most inclusive debate, dialogue, deliberation and resolution of all issues confronting our multi ethnic, multi faith nation.

Regardless of the developments, ordinary Malaysians will stand firm as a peace-loving nation and support each other.

  1. 10/01/10太平基督教堂和教会学校也受波及了!
    如果玩家警察连教堂都保护不了,又如何去保护人民!?
    F! what a 1 malaysia & pdrm!!

  2. 那天我刚好回到老家太平,看到百年教会和教会学校也受攻击,很悲痛。
    All-Saint Church只距离警察局不到半公里,曾是我小时的游乐园,庆幸没有严重事件发生。
    与教友们谈天,他们都宽恕了干案者,只祈祷这ALLAH事件不会延蔓,并呼吁其他教徒由衷地爱和尊重他们的敌人,教友们发挥了最难得可贵的大马精神,值得追崇。
