Dear Sir,

I had on the 9th of December the opportunity to visit the MPH Bookstore at the Mid-Valley Megamall in Kuala Lumpur. While browsing at the books there, one particular book caught my attention.

The title of the book is "Gerakan Orientalisme dan Kristianisasi" and was authored by Haji Nik Azran Muhamed and Haji Mohd Mahadi Hj Isa. The book was published by Hijjaz Records Publishing in May 2009. After going through the book, I have come to the conclusion that it is downright offensive and seditious.

On pages 163-182 of the book is a chapter entitled "Pengakuan Bekas Paderi Besar Sabah, Thomas Laiden". I believe this chapter is entirely fictional and is meant to insult the Christian faith as well as to incite Muslim hatred towards the Christian church, particularly the Roman Catholic church.

In other chapters the authors had come up with wild theories about the intentions of Christian groups around the world in giving aid to the needy. The authors have also referred to certain Christian organizations in Malaysia as "pertubuhan Kristianisasi".

As a concerned citizen myself, I would like to urge Christian leaders to call for a ban on the book as the book might cause Muslims to be unnecessarily suspicious of Christians. I also believe the book is highly seditious in nature.
