Remember the Holy Virgin Mother Mary in the Subang Jaya window?
Below is the image that emerged on a glass window of the SJMC hospital in November 2012.
Christians started praying to it because they believed it was a miracle sighting of Mary, Mother of God.
Non-Muslims were asked to be respectful of those Christians who believed that the image on the window was divine.
This week, Muslims sighted the appearance of crosses on the rooftop of some houses in Langkawi.
When Christians see the Holy Mother of God in a dusty Subang Jaya window, we’re asked to respect their religious sensitivities. But when Muslims see a cross on Langkawi roofs, it’s quite alright if their religious sensitivities get thrown out the window.
With the Christians of Jerusubang, we’re asked to give our understanding and practise religious harmony. The Muslims feel uneasy about the crosses but that’s okay, go ahead and mock them mercilessly for having a wild imagination.
After all, it’s only a mirror to the balance of power between the Christians and Muslims globally and between mourning for the casualties of the Paris bombing versus all the dead in the cities of Syria.
