KLANG, 6 Dec: The Chief Minister of Selangor, Mohamed Azmin Ali, confessed relief after the return of the Bibles and unravels the best solution after the issue lasted since January.

“On behalf of the Selangor government, I am happy that the Bibles were finally returned to the Christian community.

“It was a hard decision to make due to a lot of pressure and influence from certain groups,” he said in front of about 250 guests at the Sri Andalas Christmas Celebration yesterday.

Also present was the Sri Andalas Assemblyman Xavier Jeyakumar, and the Meru Assemblyman, Dr Rani Osman, as well as some Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) leaders.

The guests were entertained by musical performances by BEC Sentosa D that delivered Christmas songs as well as Sarawak cultural dances.

In relation to that, Mohamed Azmin said that religious extremist groups have no place in Selangor and the harmony of the multiracial community will continue to be maintained.
