...

On January 19, the hardline Malay rights group Perkasa had called on Muslims to burn Malay-language Bibles containing the word "Allah".

...

seven police reports had been lodged against Perkasa president Ibrahim Ali ( www.youtube.com/watch... ), who was the first to raise the idea of burning Bibles. "We will be calling him soon to take his statement over the reports," he said.

Following a backlash, Perkasa has begun distancing itself from the Bible-burning festival and has denied organising it. It said it was willing to meet Christian groups for discussions.

Just shows that Malaysian Muslims have a lot more class than Americans like Terry Jones.

for one example of hypocrisy in Malaysia on government treatment of "free-speech", here's one explanation of why there no need to act against Perkasa chief Ibrahim Ali for his 'holy war against Christians' speech:

"because society is mature enough to deal with sensitive issues"

(note: Ibrahim Ali is the person in question for this thread, and president of the Malay Supremacy group)



the first user comment for that YouTube pointed out the obvious hypocrisy:

"If I say something sacrilegious,insulting,and degrading about Islam, will you not put me under ISA because the "society is mature enough to deal with sensitive issue"?

And does this mean the ruling government is not "mature" enough since you can't take a pundit joke from a comic book?"

Not so. They are just afraid of the after effects.

This is proof that you need to come and see for yourself.

Private religious elementary and secondary schools, with independent religious curriculums, have received popular supports from parents. And they have sprung up throughout the country like mushroom in a rubber plantation.

Students attending these schoold will be future leaders of the country - when others drifting. Drifters die on the road, racing motobikes; and in dark alleys, sniffing gum and drugs.

Malay bibles? Good only for heating soup and curry.(No body read them)

Terry Jones is a nut that had a small congregation that follows. But he also had a lot of support from Americans ESPECIALLY from this newsgroup. Malays burned no bibles. Terry Jones burned qurans and posted the video on youtube and was applauded by some ESPECIALLY from this newsgroup.

Malaysians=class
Americans=no clsss

I agree Fat Jack, about Terry Jones exemplifying the quality
of anti-Muslim posers here.
These posters gag and hate any good news story about Islam.

In the United States we have Freedom of Expression, Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion.

The only reason why those other countries object to perceived insults on religion is because they do not have true freedom.

'class' is underrated and totally subjective.

Freedom of conscience, expression, religion and Liberty are not.

You choose the subjective term 'class' over real life liberties.

Says a lot about you and your superficiality.

You have this assbackwards. To justify your next sentence 'class' is overrated, should have been used.

These extremists are by definition of being extremists, in a minority.
This flag burning by the minority of extremists is therefore proof that the majority
are tolerant.
Thank you, you has it assbackwards again.
