MALAYSIAN police said yesterday they have arrested a woman who had allegedly used SMS messages to spread false information about the baptism of Muslim Malays as Christians.
Some 1,000 Muslim Malays protested outside a Catholic church where the conversions were expected to take place.
However, the crowd dispersed after learning that the ceremony was actually for about 100 ethnic Indian Catholics who were receiving their first Communion.
Nobody died this time.
Religious conversion is a thorny subject in majority-Muslim Malaysia, where Muslims are not allowed to convert.
Proselytising of Muslims by other faiths is also prohibited.
Islam is oh-so-fragile.
