Posted on January 9, 2010, Saturday
KOTA KINABALU: Another Sabahan leader has urged Christians in the state to remain calm in the wake of the fire bomb attacks on four churches in Peninsular Malaysia.Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) vice-president Datuk Herbert Timbon Lagadan in his appeal said it was his fervent hope that Sabahans would instead, continue to be steadfast in prayer to seek divine favour for continuous peace and harmony in the nation.
“In light of the latest development in West Malaysia, every Malaysian must restrain from acting out based on their emotion.
“We must not forget that we have just celebrated Christmas which proclaim good tidings and peace on earth,” the assistant Community Service and Consumer Affairs Minister said.
Herbert, who is also Kadamaian assemblyman said instead of reacting emotionally, Christians should start fasting and praying for continued unity.
Christianity, he said, preaches love, peace and unity among mankind which is very much in tandem with the concept of 1Malaysia.
