Never proposed the establishment of Christian government: Deputy Minister Steven Sim

Deputy Youth and Sports Minister Sdr Steven Sim Chee Keong said today his reference to the Bible during a forum held on September 14 was merely aimed at urging Christians to become better Malaysians by rejecting racism and corruption.

Sdr Steven Sim stressed that he did not criticise any religion nor did he propose the establishment of a Christian government as claimed by PAS deputy president Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man earlier today.

“The said forum took place in a church for Christians with the aim of discussing their responsibilities as Malaysians.

“In my speech I stressed on values espoused by the Bible as guidance to become better citizens, such as justice, transparency, helping the weak and poor, rejecting corruption, oppression and racism,” he added.

向教堂基督徒演讲而已,沈志强否认“推上帝天国”

青体部副部长沈志强同志澄清,他当时只是在基督教堂向基督徒演讲时强调,应该以圣经的各种价值,如正义、透明、帮助穷弱、拒绝贪腐、压迫和种族主义等为指引,成为良好的大马公民。

沈同志说他没有批评或谈到任何其他宗教,而是敦促大马基督徒使自己成为良好公民,奉行上述的价值,并非像伊党署理主席端依布拉欣抛出“推行基督化议程,欲打造上帝天国”的指控。

为此,他呼吁端依布拉欣尊重宗教自由,停止在大马这样的多元社会散播仇恨的种子。
