KUALA LUMPUR, March 14 — PAS deputy president Nasharudin Mat Isa joined his non-Muslim colleagues in Pakatan Rakyat today in condemning the detention of Malay-language Bibles, asserting that the holy book should be respected.When approached in Parliament on the issue this evening, the Bachok MP explained that Islam recognised Christians as “people of the book”, which meant that the Bible should be given due respect by all.This, he added, was regardless of what language the Bible is written in.He added that he even knew of the existence of Bibles written in Jawi that were presently available in Malaysia.“There are many books in the market, many Christian books that are written in Malay.The home ministry has impounded 35,000 Malay-language bibles.“And even if people cannot read it in Malay, they will read it in English so I do not see any reason why these Bibles should be detained,” he said.Nasharudin also rubbished fears that such Malay-language Bibles would encourage Muslims to convert to Christianity, expressing confidence in the faith of Muslims.“The Muslims have a strong belief in their religion and everyone has a right to practise their own beliefs.“This is just a matter of a book and we should respect the Bible because in Islam, we consider the Christians to be the people of the book,” he said.
