Malaysian Woman Arrested For Worshipping Tea - Pot

Recently a Malaysian lady was arrested for worshipping a Tea- Pot. Would you believe that? But its fact.


Although the Malaysia constitution guarantees freedom of religion, a woman was recently arrested for joining a ‘Tea-Pot Worshiping’ cult.


The eccentric sect emphasizes unity between all religions and considers the teapot the symbol of purity and love “pouring from heaven.”


According to Malaysian Muslim law, born Muslims, such as Mrs. Ali who was arrested, are forbidden from converting to other religions. This lady had been arrested back in 1992 for the same reason and her case is an indication of the growing dissatisfaction of the non-Muslim Malaysians.


This narrow majority of ethnic Malays composes almost half of the total population, which is divided between Hindus of Indian origin, Christian and Buddhist ethnic Chinese. Their interests among all others are supposed to be protected by the government.


“This has to stop. They can’t be sending her again and again to prison for this. She informed the court that she is not a Muslim. She doesn’t come under Sharia court anymore,” said her lawyer, Sa’adiah Din, to the press.


The community stands behind the woman and has long standing grievances with the policies of the government concerning religious freedom. In the wake of this particular event, Christian churches made a rare political intervention, urging voters for the up and coming election to choose candidates who support freedom of worship.
