No evidence of a Christian conspiracy to "baptise" Malaysia and appoint a Christian prime minister, says Home Ministry.
“Investigation showed there are no sufficient evidence to support statements to convict any individuals in this case,” said the Home Ministry in a written reply to Zulkifli Noordin (Independent-Kulim).
“The investigation paper had already been referred to the Attorney General’s Chambers and this case have been (categorised) as NFA (no further action),” it added.
Pro-Umno blog bigdog.com had first made the allegation that there was a Christian conspiracy to “baptise” Malaysia and appoint a Christian prime minister.
The blogger claimed the meeting, held in the DAP-held Penang, was organised by party leader and Jelutong MP Jeff Ooi, who witnessed “oath-takings” by several church heads.
Umno-owned Utusan Malaysia gave a front page and extensive coverage to the allegation.
The Utusan report soured the already fragile Muslim-Christian relation in the country, prompting Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak to make amends with church leaders.
This included establishing ties with the Vatican Church in an unprecedented move that saw Najib vowing to repair relations between Malaysian Muslims and Christians. He also pledged assurance that the Christians would be allowed to practice their religion freely.
But the move had failed to calm hostility between the two following the raid on a church by the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) on grounds of proselytisation attempts by Christians.
Church leaders have denied the allegation of conversion attempts but the country’s conservative Muslims insist proselytising efforts have been carried out.
This has also led to several rightwing and Islamic hardline NGOs organising a gathering of a million Muslims this Saturday to rally against the “challenge of Christianisation”.
