KUALA LUMPUR: A Chinese New Year open house organised by the Hidayah Centre took a turn with anti-Valentine’s Day brochures being distributed to those who attended.
The brochures, which depicted a broken heart on the cover with the title “Threat to Islam”, carried some background on the Feb 14 celebration – claiming it was to celebrate love and affection between intimate companions – and a section on “reminders and advice.”
The brochures were handed out by officials from the Malaysian Muslim Welfare Organisation (Perkim), which was one of the four co-organisers of the event held at Restoran Cina Muslim in Pusat Bandar Melawati.
The brochures were also distributed to many non-Muslims who attended the event. Also present was PKR disciplinary committee chairman Datuk Dr Tan Kee Kwong.
