This is what Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali had to say yesterday in response to a mob forcing a church in a shoplot in Taman Medan to remove the cross from its building:
“On the subject of justice and fairness, I would like to pause a moment and comment on the issue of the recent incident involving a mob forcing a church to take down its cross.
“I immediately condemned the act as unconstitutional and a violation of the fundamental rights of Christians to practice their religion unmolested. Civil society organisations including those with predominantly Muslim membership also joined in swiftly to denounce the incident.
“I just want to say this again: The Pakatan-led government of the state of Selangor subscribes firmly to the principle of justice and moderation in all matters, what more in respect of communal, religious and ethnic relations.”
