DAP condemns pig heads at mosque

 | January 1, 2012

Karpal wants Muslims to stay calm despite the provocative acts by irresponsible elements.

GEORGE TOWN: DAP today condemned the dumping of severed pig heads by unknown persons into a mosque compound in Johor Bahru on Friday.

DAP national chairman Karpal Singh said those who perpetrated the vile act of smearing the sanctity of Masjid Al Falah in Taman Desa Jaya should be immediately apprehended and punished.

He said incidents of this nature should not be allowed to shatter peace and tranquility enjoyed in the nation.

He called on Muslims to stay calm despite the provocative act of irresponsible elements.

“No doubt the dumping is most provocative act.

“Malaysians should condemn it,” said the Bukit Gelugor parliamentarian in a statement here today.

The neighbourhood residents discovered a plastic bag containing five pig heads dumped outside the mosque front entrance at about 6.30am.

Some 12 hours earlier on Thursday, residents discovered plastic bags believed to be containing bones at the side entrance of the mosque.

The residents have lodged police reports on both occasions.

The Johor police have set up a special police team to investigate the case.

The last time pig heads were dumped at mosques was last year during the controversy surrounding the usage of the word ‘Allah’ in which both mosques and churches were vandalised.

The most serious incident was when the Metro Tabernacle Church in Kuala Lumpur was burnt, leaving its entire ground floor gutted.

Calling on the police to embark on a thorough investigation into the incident, Karpal insisted on the police chief Inspector-General Ismail Omar to give the case utmost priority.
