Malaysia National Sikhs Movement (GerakSikh) want police to investigate "Yahudi, Kristian, Hindu dan Buddha berasal daripada Islam?" author Ahmad Iqram Mohamad Noor for the "errors", Geraksikh secretary-general Amarjit Singh Gill said in a statement.
"This erroneous heading in the book is an attempt by the author to try to blend the Sikh religion with Islam so as to confuse the people, with perhaps an attempt of trying to bring persons of different faiths into the Islamic religion.
"This is absolutely wrong and baseless. This is an act of blasphemy and cannot be tolerated by us, particularly in Malaysia where all faiths live in harmony," Amarjit said in a statement.
The book, on sale at the MPH book store in Kinta City, suggests that Sikism founder Guru Nanak peformed the haj in Makkah and an Indian Muslim poet, Kabir, came up with the base of the Sikh religion before Guru Nanak founded it.
"The above statements on Sikhism in the book is worrying and as can be seen the views are similar of those made by Zakir Naik, an Islamic preacher who was in Malaysia earlier," he added.
“The Malaysian Sikhs are upset with the publication of the book with these erroneous facts on Sikhism, which is an attempt to trying to change the history or dilute the facts on the foundation of Sikhism to the public at large. This is utterly wrong,” Amarjit stressed.
He also called for a public apology and for the books to be taken off the shelves unless the errors are rectified.
In June, Universiti Teknologi Mara issued a public apology and took disciplinary action against a lecturer for erroneous lecture slides on Sikhism.- Mkini
