The Malay Mail spoke with political leaders from the Klang Valley this morning for their reaction and all were united in urging the people to stay calm and remain tolerant in the true spirit of Malaysia.
PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang also visited the church, saying that the attacks were uncouth.
“I am saddened over this. This should not have happened,” said Abdul Hadi, who was accompanied by his deputy Nasharudin Mat Isa.
PAS, he said, had from Day One promoted peaceful talks and dialogue among those concerned over the usage of the word “Allah” by the Catholic weekly The Herald.
He also said that he had asked party members to look out for and ensure the safety of non-Muslims in the country.
