Pig heads were reported found at two separate mosques near here this morning and comes just days after about a dozen fire-bombing attacks and acts of vandalism were perpetrated on Churches and a Sikh temple in the wake of the “Allah” controversy.
Mosque officials found what appeared to be two wild boar heads wrapped in plastic bags and surrounded with Ringgit notes around 5.30 am this morning.
The two mosques targeted were the Masjid Jumhuriyah in Taman Dato Harun and the Al- Imam Tirmizi mosque at Taman Sri Sentosa.
Attacks on the places of worship were conducted by extremists and not followers of the two faiths, Islam or Christian. Followers of the two Abrahamic religions should understand that they pray to the same God. Both religions preach peace and harmony, not bigotry and hatred.
To these extremists, a minority in our society, they should not expect to derive any gains from their despicable actions. Malaysians are growing in maturity and are able to identify the real motive behind these attacks.
We should stand up against these extremists. Reject them if they are found in political parties, put them behind bars if they are mobs and remember to appreciate our intertwined destiny as a multiracial nation.
Many nations craved for our diversity which could be tapped to turn into a social and cultural vibrancy.
Alas, we have neglected our gift and wasted too much time on some petty things and sectarian squabbles.
Perhaps, it is time to really kick out racism.
The root cause of these problems we are facing is racism.
SAY NO TO RACISM!
