PETALING JAYA: Harapan Komuniti, the organisers of the thanksgiving dinner raided by the Selangor Religious Islamic Department (JAIS) on Aug 3, received a death threat yesterday morning.
The source who informed FMT of the incident was unable to provide any details except that the handwritten note was written in Malay and contained a warning to Christians that Muslims would not “lose”.
Harapan Komuniti lodged a police report at the Sea Park police station at about 10pm last night.
The police officer in charge confirmed this but said that details of the report were confidential.

When contacted Harapan Komuniti’s management appeared upset that the news had reached the media and declined to comment.
The source told FMT that the NGO was remaining tight-lipped over the incident as it was “devastated” that the home had now become an innocent target of irresponsible individuals.
“They are fearing for the lives of those under their care, especially the children,” the source said. “And the last thing they want is for this incident to be spun by media with agenda which could worsen the situation.”
Being harrassed
JAIS raided the dinner held in the Damansara Utama Methodist Church (DUMC) on Aug 3 after allegedly receiving a complaint that proselytising activities were being carried out there.
Harapan Komuniti has denied this and inisted that the dinner was held for HIV/AIDS supporters.
JAIS has since summoned the 12 Muslims present at the dinner for questioning earlier this week.
FMT understands that JAIS has also been harrassing a few among the 12 individuals by contacting them late at night and pressuring them to attend counselling sessions immediately.
A hearing committee comprising Selangor Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim, state mufti  Mohd Tamyes Abdul Wahid and his deputy, Abdul Majib Omar, was formed last Monday with the sole purpose of resolving the controversial raid issue.
Harapan Komuniti and JAIS met the hearing committee in two separate closed-door sessions on Thursday to present their individual accounts of the issue.
But neither side revealed details of the discussion although the state government is expected to issue a statement soon.
