Moderate Muslims: “you better write about us nicely, or else”

Group stages protest over cross on church building

PETALING JAYA: About 50 residents staged a peaceful protest against a new church situated in a shoplot in Taman Medan after the congregation there put up a cross on the church building.

The group, which gathered at about 10am on Sunday while church service was going on, contended that the sight of the cross in a majority Muslim area challenged Islam and could influence younger minds.

…A few of them also threatened a reporter, saying “you better write about us nicely, or else” with some holding on to his shirt as he interviewed the protesters.
