A crown prince yesterday criticised non-Muslims for “crossing the religious border” and making anti-Muslim statements.
Opening a Perak state assembly session in Ipoh, the regent of Perak, Nazrin Shah, said it was unacceptable that teachings of Islamic scholars to Muslims about their faith and sharia law “is being questioned and debated openly by non-Muslims.”
He said: “The etiquette of respecting and non-interfering in the affairs of other religions must be adhered,” the New Straits Times reported.
Non-Muslims must not continue to “make fun” of Islamic laws and Muslims’ faith, said Shah.
Islam remains protected by the constitution “with special and absolute status” but that does not cause Muslims to become “arrogant” twoards those of other faiths, he said.
Muslims avoid making comments or open criticism of other faiths and “don’t interfere in the practices and rituals of other religions,” said Shah.
