KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 17 — Evangelical Christians are using high-tech devices such as solar-powered talking bibles to proselytize to Malay Muslims in Selangor, state lawmaker Datuk Hasan Ali said today.
Hasan, who is in charge of the state’s Islamic affairs portfolio, said the state’s religious authority (Jais) had discovered that Christian missionaries were now spreading their gospel through technologically-advanced means apart from setting up welfare groups providing cash and other financial aid to single mothers and the destitute.
He added that Jais’s research showed Christian evangelists were spreading their faith to young Muslim students in free tuition classes and counselling sessions, besides distributing Christian pamphlets in public places, homes, universities and places that were ostensibly called “community centres” to carry out their evangelical work.
The ex-PAS state commissioner disclosed this in a written reply to a question from Umno-Sungai Burong assemblyman Datuk Mohd Shamsudin Lias.
According to a website called Book of Joe, the palm-sized radio-like device contains all the books in the New and Old Testaments and is fitted with batteries that will run for almost 10 hours before needing to be recharged, whether by the sun, a light bulb or a nine-volt AC adapter. It costs only US$99.95 (RM310).
This latest disclosure, after a controversial August 3 raid by Selangor Islamic authorities on the Damansara Utama Methodist Church (DUMC) in Petaling Jaya, could trigger another Christian-Muslim conflict.
Christian leaders have consistently denied claims that they are attempting to convert Muslims, but relations between the two creeds with roots in the Middle East continue to smoulder in multi-religious, multi-cultural Malaysia where the religion of the federation is Islam as stated in the Federal Constitution.
Hasan said Jais is working to counter Christian proselytism of Muslims by holding sessions to clarify Islamic doctrine and its laws.
The lawmaker said Jais is also seeking to strengthen the enforcement of the Non-Islamic Religions (Control of Propagation Amongst Muslims) Enactment 1988 as well as the Syariah Criminal Offences Enactment 1995.

More of Islam’s talisman values. It is believed that the person is endowed with special powers when it is worn right!
Kick-boxers in Malaysia’s Kelantan state are bemoaning rules imposed by its Islamist government that require them to don a T-shirt while banning shorts, tattoos and talismans as part of a policy to instil Muslim values, a newspaper reported Tuesday.
The Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party, the country’s largest opposition party, which governs the state in north-eastern Malaysia came out with the conditions three months ago for kick-boxing, or tomoi as it is known in the state.
Kelantan Tomoi Boxing Association president Ramli Ibrahim told The Star that organizers of competitions have been informed about the new rules but he was sceptical about their chances of being obeyed.
“The feedback I got was that the organizers will find it very difficult to get the boxers to cover up their ’aurat,’” he was quoted as saying. Aurat refers to the body parts that should be covered up, according to Islam, which for men means the area between the navel and knees.
“But this matter can be resolved if organizers understand what it takes to keep the sport alive,” he added.
Kelantan government sports official Mohamed Ridza Mohamed Zain was reported as saying Sunday that the state wanted to instil Islamic values in sports. He said that was why the government was tightening up regulations in all sports, including tomoi, to ensure they conform to the Islamic policy championed by the state.
Another condition is that all competitions must have at least three teams with Kelantanese fighters and one team from Thailand.
Kick-boxing was introduced to Kelantan from neighbouring Thailand, where talismans and tattoos are common in the sport.
