Political leaders united against attacks on churches

From (Submitted by Najiah on 8/1/2010)

KUALA LUMPUR: The political divide has closed for once with all soundly condemning the arson attempts on several churches this morning — and shocked politicians of all colours into calling for the police to act fast. The Malay Mail spoke with political leaders from the Klang Valley this morning for their reaction and all were united in urging the people to stay calm and remain tolerant in the true spirit of 1Malaysia.

DAP Segambut Member of Parliament Lim Lip Eng:

In expressing his shock over the incidents, he made a plea to the people by saying: "If people were to retaliate, I urge the people retaliate with love and forgiveness."

Lim also expressed hope that all Muslims would "pray for peace, acceptance, forgiveness and tolerance among all of us" during the Friday prayers in the afternoon.

"And I believe that police need to work fast."
