"Don't Play With Fire," Says Umno Youth As It Warns Bar Council On 'Conversion To Islam' Forum
The movement’s exco member Datuk Pirdaus Ismail said the movement strongly opposed the Bar Council’s plan to organise an open forum on conversion to Islam.
“Don’t play with fire! Don’t ever touch religious and racial (matters)!" he said in a statement released on Thursday.
"Why has the Bar Council been stoking the fires of disunity lately -- like they have been used by foreign powers who want to create chaos and intervene in the country’s internal affairs?” he said.
“Whatever (the) excuses given, the forum would still provoke Malay sentiment and create uneasiness and public disorder, particularly among the Malays,” he said in the statement.
He said the movement urged the authorities to implement preventive measures before the situation got out of hand.
Pirdaus said the Bar Council had previously also organised a forum on the much-discussed social contract, which incited anger among the Malays and created doubt in the other races.
“It is pointless to organise forums based on intellectualism, professionalism or controversial issues when the safety, peace, harmony and stability of the country were being compromised,” he added. (The Star Online)
***** Citing the compromise of safety, peace, harmony and stability, Pirdaus says "it is pointless to organise forums based on intellectualism, professionalism or controversial issues"! How do you even reason with or God forbid, argue with a guy like that?
