KUALA LUMPUR – The non-Muslims were warned to not interfere with the affairs of Muslims, especially when it involves the religion and the importance of religious education, especially al-Quran in tahfiz schools.

The Chief Activist of the Malaysian Muslim Consumers Association (PPIM), Datuk Nadzim Johan said that the interference would only affect the racial and religion harmony in the country.

“They (non-Muslims) don’t understand the issue, thus, why should they talk about things they don’t understand. If they want to say something, they need to understand the issue otherwise, they’ll look foolish.

“We are talking about things that involve Islam, thus, non-Muslims, please do not interfere. We also do not interfere in things that do not concern us,” he said in a press conference at the headquarters of PPIM today elaborating on the recent statements from former Minister of Communications, Tan Sri Zainuddin Maidin that the tahfiz schools should be ceased as the institutions do not give hope to the new Islamic generation.

“On the statement by the Speaker of Perak stating that the Muslims must respect the non-believers (murtad), although they have won (in GE14), it was a collaboration of everyone. Winning the election does not mean that you can do anything as you wish.

“We need to be responsible. A new government does not mean that you have the license to kill… we can’t do that,” he added. – MalaysiaGazette.
