KOTA KINABALU: Angkatan Perubahan Sabah (APS) vice president Paul Kadau challenged PAS’ Pasir Puteh MP Nik Muhammad Zawawi Salleh to an open dialogue on his allegations on the Bible being distorted.
He said the constitutional rights of freedom to exercise religious beliefs and practices are being challenged with unwise and baseless remarks by Nik Zawawi aired during the recent parliamentary sessions.
“My personal views on Nik Zawawi claim that the Christian have no right to be offended by “Bible are distorted” remarks, is that he’s totally wrong,” he stated.
“Furthermore, his remarks had nothing to do with religious beliefs when the issues discussed at hand was about punishment against errant drunken drivers.”
He said he might have been misinformed or acquired wrong information on the subject but ‘I wish to challenge him to speak on the subject outside the immunity of parliament”.
Nik Zawawi in a recent statement claimed that the Christians have no right to be offended, following an earlier remark that the Christian Bible was distorted.
“They have no right to be offended. What I said was not an accusation but a fact,” he was quoted as saying. -ENDS
