The sultan added that Pang’s act was a “serious” infringement of the sanctity of the mosque, and threatened the position of Islam in the state.

Adding that mosques are off-limits to partisan politics, he said action would be taken against those who are involved in such infringements.

He said he was invited to enter the mosque after his allocation was announced, adding that he had earlier been sitting outside with the other non-Muslims.

He added that he had not even taken a group picture with anyone during that event.

During Pakatan Harapan’s time in the opposition, he added, they had always reminded the Barisan Nasional government not to let mosques be used as a platform for political speeches, which was in line with his own views.

Very good. No one should use any holy place to promote political ends. If anyone does, please file a police report. Holy places are meant for prayers. Not for politics. Politics must be banned from holy places. MP tu mungkin jahil tp ajk masjid tlg la bgtau dia dia Hantar aje wakil dan diam2 bagi sumbangan. Tak payah nak heboh satu kampung !!! Seribu ringgit aje pun bukan satu ratus ribu YB

Pakai pakaian hormat sikit bro...Haiz!!!? For those who are too lazy to read. 'He said he was INVITED to enter the mosque after his allocation was announced, adding that he had earlier been sitting outside with the other non-Muslims.: SIAPA YG POLITIKKAN? Padahal masjid tu yang jemput dia masuk.. macam tu lah mereka junjung wakil mereka... tapi dipolitikkan seorang can macai2 dia

Best advice to get his Muslim staff to represent him on his donation issue. PERIOD. No controversy! Rm1k pun nak umum... This may give negative message to non-Muslim if it’s not clarified properly. Why the good deed of the MP was not mentioned? No need to enter the mosque

MP pays it forward by footing student's varsity fee

Giving $$ from ur political budget is also considered as a politically motivated. There is a standing order banning politics from mosques. Which part can u not respect, DAP? Rules and regulations? Murka ahli politik DAP beri sumbangan RM1,000 kpd masjid? Dia hanya jalankan tugas sbg wakil rakyat. Kalau dia x buat, nnt pula ada yg tuduh DAP tak tolong Melayu dan Islam. Sekurang-kurangnya, dia x guna duit rakyat mintak satu tandas khas dibina utuk dia kt masjid tu.

cina makan babi !!! Hahahaha, caught in the act la. If you want to announce, cannot do it outside of the mosque ke? Liar dap. Non muslim MP should stay away from the mosque. It is a no win situation. The goodness of good intention is not worth the anger and the misunderstanding if there is any. Stay away, it is not worth it. Too many issues waiting to pound.

it is certain people try to paint negative pictures and to make it a religious issue. It is good intentions to provide allocation.
