KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism (MCCBCHST) will hold special prayers in light of the Court of Appeal decision where a Hindu woman was asked to seek marital recourse in a Syariah Court.

President Datuk Chee Peck Kiat told a press conference that “a brief statement of concern would be read to the congregations and followed by a prayer for the restoration of religious freedom.”

Prayers were held by the Sikh community on Saturday, Christians on Sunday and the Taoists yesterday.

Hindus will hold prayers on Friday (6.30pm at Sundaraj Perumal Temple in Klang) and the Buddhists on Sunday (10am at Wisma Buddhist, Jalan Klang Lama).
