Pwned! Again??

Church torching? Immediately after hacked website?
I'm still speechless until this moment. So, I'll just be quoting news articles here.

ADD: Those who wish to donate for Metro Tabernacle Church, check out this site.

Latest news as I write this post:
A fourth Klang Valley church, this time in Kampung Subang, was reportedly attacked with Molotov cocktail which failed to explode while police have dismissed reports that cars with Christian symbols having their windscreens smashed in the Bangsar suburb today, hours after arson attacks on three churches. (Source here)

More details from TheStar here.

Twitter responses:

(1)  Umno Youth head Khairy Jamaluddin tweeted "Despicable & cowardly. This is not my Malaysia.", then later on, "Just visited Metro Tabernacle church in Melawati. Am lost for words."

(2)  Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir tweeted "All Muslims shd condemn the torching of the church last nite. It is unIslamic to destroy ANY house of worship.", then, "At the church. I wanna cry. It's heartbreaking!". Wonderfully, she also retweeted this Bible verse: "RT @meeshly: Father forgive them, for they know not what they do (Luke 23:34)".

(3)  Tweet from @fahmi_fadzil: DrDzul: "PAS condemns the attack unequivocally. Statement out on Harakah soon."

(4)  Our dear Prime Minister himself tweeted "I condemn the church bombings. An investigation has been launched and those responsible will be brought to justice."

Other responses:

(5)  Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim described the attacks as heinous and said such actions were against the teachings of Islam.

“Islam teaches its followers to respect the places of worship of other religions. I urge all parties to remain calm. I have full faith that Malaysians will be able to resolve the matter without any conflict”
