YESTERDAY, as I was on my way home I was alerted by SMS that Tok Guru was visiting St. Francis Xavier Church at Jaan Gasing at 5:00pm. This was a magnanimous gesture, and I was not going to miss this. When I arrived at the Church the media was already there and parishioners were unaware of why the media was present. The evening service was to commence at 5:30pm. Heavy traffic on a Sunday caused by a heavy shower delayed Tok Guru's arrival until 5:35pm. Whilst the service was on Fr. Simon was on hand to receive Tok Guru.
However, Tok Guru said that he wanted to visit the Church which was torched. A police officer volunteered to escort Tok Guru to the Assumption Church. When Tok Guru arrived the service had begun ahead of the 6:00pm service as it was the Harvest Festival and a Tamil service had already begun. Tok Guru met with the Parish Priest Fr. Philip Muthu but I could not catch the conversation. But you and I can imagine what transpired.
Fr. Philip is aware of this SMS and he catergorically denied this and asked me to pan it down to readers that this was a mischievous rumour. Fr Muthu told me that he had informed Malaysiakini about this HERE.
So people, be wary of this mischief that will still prevail.
