MAY 7 — The National Evangelical Christian Fellowship (NECF) Malaysia is appalled by the recent forum organised at UiTM.
The programme was negative and did not promote peaceful co-existence and harmony.
If such programmes are permitted to run in other higher institutions of learning in the days ahead, it will only raise confusion and a sense of prejudice among Muslim students against people of other faiths.
Institutions of higher learning should instead be promoting mutual understanding and acceptance.
One could perhaps ask how Muslims would feel, if followers of other faiths were to invite their experts to interpret how the Koran should be interpreted.
The seminar smacked of gross insensitivity and went against the grain of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib’s “One Malaysia Policy”.
It is deeply disappointing, and this is only putting it mildly, that in the first place, this seminar was allowed to be held.
