The deputy chief minister said it is very irresponsible for anyone to claim otherwise and attempt to cause interracial provocation, noting a recent Facebook post that wrongly portrayed Unifor as a uni-religious agency.“He had suggested that Unfor should be renamed Unit For Christianity. He is conveniently ignoring the fact that the unit is looking after 16 different religious groups represented in it,” said Uggah, who is the minister in charge of the unit, after attending Unifor’s pre- strategic planning programme meeting here.

He didn’t name anyone.However, an Opposition politician had in his Facebook’s post recently called for the set-up of a separate agency for Christianity on grounds that the majority of Sarawakians are Christians.Uggah issued a warning to would-be troublemakers.
