Media Comment by Lim Guan Eng in Petaling Jaya on Thursday, 21st January 2010: 

Another arson on place of worship 

I have been informed by the DAP Bentayan State Assemblyman, Gwee Tong Hiang, that Surau Silaturrahim at Kg Sabak Awor, Jln Ibrahim, Muar had become a target of arson early hours this morning. The window of the surau was damaged in the process, and fortunately no one was hurt.

We do not know if the incident has any link with the current spat of destructive attempts on various places of worship, be it mosques, churches or Gurdwaras, but it certainly created more anxiety among peace-loving Malaysians.

The DAP strongly condemn the destructive behaviour of the perpetrator of such irresponsible attacks who clearly intended to provoke suspicious among our multi-racial and multi-religious communities. We urge the police to step up its investigation and monitoring mechanism to bring the perpetrators to justice, and to prevent any further similar incident from happening in order to safeguard our harmonious way of life.
