Update: 20 Dec 2106
What does Wong Chun Wai mean by saying “public institutions of higher learning are allowed to hold seminars questioning the faiths of other Malaysians”? See his column today, ‘Let’s rise above racial rants‘?
The J-Star article initially headlined ‘IGP: No laws broken by police officer speaking at anti-Christian seminar’ – see tweet below – has been amended to say “anti-conversion seminar” in the paper’s online version.
This type of provocative approach to reporting adopted by the MCA-owned media hardly reflects ‘moderation’.
BN must take MCA to task over the latter’s media empire and behaviour of its editorial staff who are divisive and deliberately promoting disharmony among adherents of different religions.
Labelling the UiTM seminar as “anti-Christian” is not being the ‘Voice of Moderation’ at all.
MCA accountable for EvangeliSTAR hijack and sabotage
Is the MCA’s propaganda machinery covertly as anti-Malay and anti-Islam as the DAP?
And why is the MCA allowing its paper to be used as a vehicle by evangelista Wong Chun Wai to promote himself and his fellow Christians?
Chun Wai had plonked his face on Page Two of the newspaper recently on Nov 22. Does his photo really need to appear on the second page of the J-Star touting his piddling article?
And what does the paper mean to do by omitting mention of the Selangor State Secretary when the Selangor Speaker can be mentioned prominently in the caption? See screenshot below.
The caption to the article a few days ago datelined 11 Dec 2015 reads,
“A file picture of Selangor Ruler Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, accompanied by Speaker Hannah Yeoh (left) and Azmin (second from right), arriving at a state assembly meeting in Shah Alam.”
Datuk Khusrin is invisible where the J-Star is concerned.

Although captioning Hannah Yeoh and Azmin Ali, The J-Star notably failed to credit Selangor State Secretary Mohammed Khusrin Munawi who can be seen second from left in the photo above.
This omission is a breach of protocol because Datuk Khusrin is No.2 in the order of precedence after the Menteri Besar. He even ranks ahead of senior excos like Teng Chang Khim and Elizabeth Wong in the hierarchy – see chart of the Selangor government here in the state official website.
If the EvangeliSTAR copyeditor is unable to name all the VIPs, it would have been more prudent for him/her to have just used a standalone or general illustrative photo instead of HRH Sultan Sharafuddin.
Note that the bylined reporter Wani Muthiah made no mention of Hannah Yeoh in her write-up. The accompanying photo – which has Hannah in it – is merely a File Picture, i.e. photo that is not current nor related to the event detailed in the article.
The photo was selected not by the reporter but by a scissorati on the desk. MCA is allowing a business company that’s owned by the BN party to be actively promoting the cause of DAP evangelical Christians.
Why is MCA permitting the media apparatus under its control to breed a Nest of Evangelistas?
