MCCBCHST must act effectively

The Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism (MCCBCHST) must act effective and stand by their rights and equality when dealing with with various authorities related to Islamic affairs.

The MCCBCHST must also state their stand as a defender of the rights and equality of other religions and belief in this nation. Voicing their concerns in the press or media on some unjust movements and conversions activities were not enough, the MCCBCHST leadership should act without fear and worry to confront matters and issues of their communities which has been unjustly treated and avoid their moves of being politicised by especially by Umno who is well-known for its radical and threatening measures when issues related to Islam were brought up for consultation and discussion.

In fact all religions and beliefs should be open to constructive criticisms, consultations and review as no one is above the law and therefore, no one religion should reign supreme on other beliefs. Mutual understand and harmonious society with multi-religious practice in line our Malaysian concept should therefore be observed and maintained.
