(Muslims converted to Christians: 1983-1989 = 66,000; 2006 = 250,000)
The “threat” of Christianisation was brought up again today at a forum at awhere a crowd of about 1,000 was told that Christians will outnumber Muslims in Malaysia by 2100.
Pertubuhan Muafakat Sejahtera Masyarakat Malaysia (Muafakat) president Abdul Karim Omar said this was based on the rapid increase of Christians in Malaysia.
He said this is what Malaysiaface if Christianisation is allowed to continue here.
"According to our research, the percentage of Christians increases by a huge amount every decade," he said at a seminar on the use of the word Allah and Christology at Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) today.
He said the latest statistics showed that the number of Christians in Malaysia stands at less than 10% of the population, while Muslims are more than 60%.
"But if Christianisation continues, by 2100, there will be an equal number of Christians and Muslims - 40%."
"And it will continue to increase, he said.
Karim usedas an example, saying that in 1905 the number of Christians in the country were only 0.5% of the population. But because of rapid Christianisation in the 1970s and 1980s, it increased to almost 30% in 2005, he said.
"This happened in South Korea and could happen here," he added.
Karim earlier said his speech was meant to “expose the planned agenda and the ill-intention of Christian evangelists”.
He also told the 1,000 people gathered, includingand , the number of Muslims who converted to Christianity in the early 1900s "could be counted with fingers".
“But in a Parliament, the then PAS president Yusof Rawa revealed that 66,000 people had turned away from Islam.
“And in 2006, Perak Mufti Datuk Seri Hurusaini Zakaria said the number had increased to 250,000. I don't know how much it is now,” he said, adding that the situation painted a “scary picture”.
An Indonesian formeralso told the seminar that Christians were betraying God if they do not convert to Islam.
H. Insan LS Mokoginta, said that every follower of Jesus should convert to Islam otherwise it would be a betrayal to Him.
Mokoginta, who converted to Islam in 1976, said this in his speech entitled "the Threat of Christianisation". – May 6, 2014.
