Lawyer expresses regret over azan complaint

KUALA LUMPUR: The lawyer who wrote a letter asking a mosque in Kampung Kerinchi to lower the volume of its azan call has apologised, saying he could not differentiate between the call to prayer and religious sermon.

Ng Kian Nam, 31, told a press conference at the Lembah Pantai Umno headquarters that it was all due to a misunderstanding because he could not understand the difference between the two.

“I want to apologise for the misunderstanding. I never had the intention to insult Muslims,” he said.

Ng was embroiled in the controversy when rumours spread that the al-Ikhlasiah mosque at Kam­pung Kerinchi had been ordered to lower the volume of its loudspeakers due to a complaint written to the Prime Minister’s Department by a lawyer.

Several NGOs organised a demonstration last Friday in protest of the complaint.

On Sunday evening, Ng met with Federal Territories and Urban Well-being Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin and representatives from Perkasa, Pekida, Pantai Dalam Residents’ Association and the mosque.

The soft-spoken lawyer, who made the apology at the meeting, admitted he was an MCA member but stressed that he had written the letter as a Pantai Dalam resident.

Raja Nong Chik said the matter was a non-issue and warned irresponsible parties not to sensationalise it.

“It is a small matter caused by a misunderstanding. If it is blown up, it is as though the Pantai Dalam area is not safe,” said Raja Nong Chik, who is also the Lembah Pantai Umno division chief, stressing no orders were issued for the mosque to lower its volume.
