Recently, there are many cases of torching denomination church's building in my country, including in my town. Click for news.
This reminds me of a story told by my high school teacher. It is about racial riot on 13 May 1969, May 13 Incident. According to him, May 13 Incident was the outcome when a cinema fulled of people from different race, was torched down. The door was locked, and no one escaped from it. Then people start to accuse each other for committing the arson. Malaysian Chinese accused it is Malaysian Malay who did it, and vice versa. That was how May 13 Incident happened.
However his story is without any factual support.
In my hometown, race and religion rarely are problem. That is the reason I was surprised when there is an attempt to commit arson on church's building. Maybe it was only some people trying to sabotage the situation to play a prank on certain party.
No one knows for sure.
Don't judge the content by its cover.
