Hornbill Unleashed

Bishop Murphy Pakiam, What have you to say to Christians & Najib now!

Francis Y Manickam

I’m incensed when I read Perkasa chief Ibrahim Ali urging Muslims in this country to seize and burn Malay Bibles. So where are they going to seize those bibles from? From our houses? Or from our churches? Or do you expect us to surrender the Bibles to them when they come knocking on our doors?

Where are you now, Bishop? You accompanied the Prime Minister and his wife to the Vatican to visit Pope Benedict XVI on July 18 2011 supposedly to foster cordial ties with the Christian community here.

” read here MNI 18/7/11 …The Malaysian Insider understands the Prime Minister’s personal visit is to help repair frayed ties arising from the Catholic Church’s legal suit to use ‘Allah’ to refer to the Christian God in its Bahasa Malaysia Publication. The case is pending in court of Appeals after the church won the right in the High Court on Dec 31 2009. Today Najib formalized ties between” Malaysia and the Vatican “

Answer to your flock

What sincere ties have been formulated for the Christians in Malaysia? Since you arranged the visit, you should know how sincere was Najib to the Christians and answer them. The fact is, it has been 18 months since you visited the Pope with Najib, and till today you have not disclosed how much ground we have achieved. We are back to ground zero from the fateful day when Churches were torched and vandalized all for the sake of’ Allah’ in the Bible.

Was your visit with the premier a sightseeing trip on tax payers money? Did you fool us – the innocent church goers and lay people? The Malay Bible is an integral part in our homes, as you know our children were schooled in National Schools and are proficient in Bahasa Malaysia, rather then English.

Then, we have our brothers from Sabah and Sarawak who only speak and read the Malay language. We have Bahasa Malaysia masses for them here in Peninsula Malaysia, so can we allow Ibrahim Ali and his people to seize our Bibles and burn them?

Don’t shame us with more compromise

You as our Bishop and the head of our church must react and give us an answer. You must ‘face off’ with Najib on this matter since you know him better and negotiate on behalf of us – the Malaysian Christians – to leave us alone to practice our faith without any hindrance and stress.

Please don’t compromise like what you did when you allowed religious paraphernalia to be removed during Najib’s visit to your place one Christmas. We have not forgotten that and it hurts till today when we know you compromised on our belief.



  1. Yes bishop, say something!. Do something!. Stop kneeling down but stand up and answer to your call.

  2. Bishop Murphy Pakiam, you need God’s discernment to deal with such a dirty, rotten and cunning politician like Najib. Do you know you are dealing with the devil in disguise? To all church leaders who are dealing with Najib or have some connection with Najib, better stay away from this hypocrite unless it’s truly God’s calling. Otherwise, the farther from him, the better!

  3. Ibrahim Ali knows that he cannot win any votes other than those from the extreme Malay right and he is thus playing solely to that audience. He can’t help it if it hurts Najib and UMNO in the process. This is really good for the Pakatan Rakyat.

    When the American preacher threatened to burn the Koran, the whole muslim world was berated and frouthing in the mouth with all sorts of profanities against him. Sensitive? When Ibrahim ali utter the same words albeit it is the “burning of the bibles” do the Christians in Malaysia or other parts of the world behave in the same manner? No ! We feel sorry for this clown and his manipulation of the Islam religion for political mileage all “in the name of religion and as defender of Islam”. I believe many of our Muslim brothers are equally upset with this clown and his puppet masters.

  4. They can come to my house if they want to confiscate the bibles. They will never be seen or heard again. That I can promise.

  5. My advse to religious leaders. If you are not as cunning as a politician especially when dealing with someone like Najib, you should always demand any promises made in black and white.

    • True.

      Najib ‘buat tak tahu’ as he has shown that he is giving more priority to the palestine cause as he and Rosmah could get doctorate degree in Egypt to rival his DPM who got one in USA.

    • Any promises from Najib and BN government not inked in stone is as good as toilet paper in the toilet bowl where it should rightly belong.
