But the “Datuk T” trio who attended a 'sumpah laknat' ceremony at a mosque, did it for no reason. According to a retired senior cop Datuk Mat Zain Ibrahim by doing that, they had defiled the mosque.
The former city criminal investigation chief said Wednesday “Datuk T” created the perception that the situation in the Masjid Amru Al-As, Sentul was unsafe.
“It was as if they would be hurt or shot in a mosque. In fact, they should know that even the Malay Rulers do not wear bulletproof vests when they enter any mosque in the country.
“This act has defiled the holiness of the mosque and insulted Islam,” he said in a letter sent to editors today.
He said the trio — businessman Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah, former Malacca Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik and Perkasa treasurer-general Datuk Shuib Lazim — had run afoul of Section 295 of the Penal Code.
“As with the offence of screening the obscene video under Section 292, this is also an open-and-shut case. In my opinion, they have no defence,” Mat Zain wrote.
Section 295 states that 'whoever defiles any place of worship, with the knowledge that any class of persons is likely to consider such defilement as an insult to their religion' will be jailed for up to two years and/or fined.
So many craps and a lot of nonsense are taking place in the country. Sooner or later, someone may drive a Hummer straight into a mosque...
