Meeting with Tun M

January 11, 2019 – Putrajaya

Religious leaders from Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism, and Taoism (MCCBCHST) met the Prime Minister, YAB Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed today at Putrajaya. Firstly, the leader congratulated Tun Dr Mahathir for the success of the Pakatan Harapan government.

The Religious leaders raised several crucial issues faced by other religions in Malaysia. Among others, matters related to the formation of a Theocratic Islamic State in Malaysia which contravene the Federal Constitution, the formation of Hindu Endowment Board, review of Law Reform (Marriage and Divorce) (Amendment) Act 2017 were discussed.

Another concern expressed was the increase of religious and racial hatred in Malaysia. The leaders expressed their concern over the inaction or delay by the Royal Malaysian Police in settling several cases of abduction of religious leaders and in giving effect to the Court’s order in Madam Indira Gandhi’s cases.

Datuk RS Mohan Shan, the current President of MCCBCHST said that the discussion was fruitful. We hope Tun M. will give due recognition to MCCBCHST for its role in ensuring harmony among the different religions.
