Or to use another metaphor — throwing a cat among the pigeons.
PAS cabinet ministers, as Ismail Sabri’s religious tzars, want their new law enacted because they don’t wish for Muslims to be evangelized by preachers.
Who will such a law “to restrict the propagation of non-Muslim religions” (see The Star news report yesterday, above) affect the most?
In Malaysia, it is illegal to preach any faith other than Islam to Muslims.
So this newly proposed law by PAS then begs the question:
Are Buddhist preachers preaching Buddhism to the Malays?
Are Hindu preachers preaching Hinduism to the Malays?
Are Sikh preachers preaching Sikhism to the Malays?
Are Taoist preachers preaching Taoism to the Malays?
Err, the Christians?
To conclude with another metaphor — Pink elephant in the room.
