Pastor Ho refuse to meet JAIS Officers

At the Damansara Utama Methodist Church (DUMC) morning mass today, Senior Pastor Daniel Ho was said to have admitted to the congregation that he deliberately refused to meet JAIS Officers at JAIS Head Office.

On the raid  the ‘Dream Centre’ on Wednesday night 3 Aug 2011 by JAIS Officers, Pastor Ho was also said to have been very adamant about  the event on was purely “Social in nature”. He was believed to be insistent about the program which involved Malay Muslims in DUMC was about ‘social service’ and “Helping the unfortunates”.

Malay Bibles are some the evidence found amongst the Malay Muslim at DUMC on Wednesday 3 Aug 2011

However, evidence obtained from the twelve Malay Muslims on Wednesday night suggests there was some sort protelyzation process ongoing. Amongst the items discovered are Bibles in Malay and other related documents. Reports also stated that Malay Muslims in dire financial state have been ‘befriended’. Berita Harian also reported that one of them admitted some 100 single mothers are amongst this group.

This admission of refusal to co-operate with JAIS Officers in the investigation demonstrate a blatant disregard for authorities and the administration of Islam, as the religion of the Federation of Malaysia. This is also reflecting the Opposition’s strategy of ‘Politics of Hatred’, with the consistent demonization of law enforcements agencies and authorities.

Amongst those who attended today’s service are Chinese Chauvinists DAP Leaders Secretary General and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, ADUN for Kinrara and Exco in-charge of Investment, Industry and Commerce Theresa Kok and ADUN for Subang Jaya Hannah Yeo. The strong Chinese Chaunivist DAP patronage immediately after the raid by JAIS is evidently clear that they are indirectly using church as an apparatus for their politics.

On 5 May 2011 in Penang, DAP MP for Jelutong Jeff Ooi organized a dinner for some pastors as part of the post-Sarawak April State Elections. In the zest to that dinner event, they vowed “To have a Christian as the PM” and “Make Christianity as one of the official religion of Federation of Malaysia”.

PAS to help resolve Jais church raid controversy

By SIRA HABIBU

PETALING JAYA: PAS is stepping in to help resolve the controversy arising from the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) raid on a church hall in Damansara Utama recently.

PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang said Sunday they were going on a fact-finding mission to seek the truth.

“We want to hear directly from both sides before offering a solution. We must be fair. We must hear from Jais and from the church,” he told reporters after chairing the monthly PAS central committee meeting.

PAS is sending letters to the Methodist Church in Damansara Utama and Jais, seeking appointments for meetings.

Hadi said party secretary-general Datuk Mustafa Ali would lead the fact-finding mission.

****************

It is funny why PAS representatives should meet up with JAIS officials on the matter and not trust Dato’ Dr Hasan Ali, who is Selangor Exco in-charge of Religious Affairs which oversee JAIS. The fact that PAS has doubts on the professionalism of JAIS as a Selangor Government agency gives a strong message for DAP to fully use the incident as a political tool.

It demonstrated clear Anwarista-controlled PAS now panders
