Thirty Malaysian civil societies of different faiths have called on Putrajaya to voice its opposition and concern to the Brunei government for criminalising public Christmas celebrations.
The societies, which include Christian as well as Muslim groups, said Bruneiís ban on public celebrations of Christmas violated Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
They said the ban also affected Malaysian citizens in Brunei, and went against Islamic principles of tolerance
and respect for religious freedom.
