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.
