A pig head was found at the entrance of Nurul Iman Mosque at Batu 18 Rawang, Selangor, early this morning.
PKR Rawang assemblyperson Gan Pei Nei (right) said it was found at 5am by a mosque committee member when the main gate was being opened.
The police were contacted and arrived at 7.30am and left about two hours later with the pig head for further investigation.
Gan added that they were from the Rawang police station and the case
will be investigated by the criminal investigation department.
Action was political-motivated
She condemned the action as one that was provocative and offensive to
religious sensitivities, adding that it was probably politically
motivated as the general election is right round the corner.
She said that such an incident would not happen all of a sudden as the mosque had been there for 48 years.
"The general election is getting closer and someone is trying to cause problems," she said.
Gan urged the police to speed up their investigation and bring the criminal to justice.
Ronnie Liu visits mosque
Selangor state exco member Ronnie Liu, who also paid a visit to the
mosque, said that Gan will represent the state government at the mosque
committee meeting tonight.
He said she will report on the meeting as well as pass on any requests the committee had for the state.
Liu slammed the incident as provocative but was glad that the committee did not panic but remained calm.
He also refused to speculate on the incident saying that it was best to let the police do their work.
