KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA (Worthy News)-- After a controversial church raid this week, two Malay newspapers alleged that Christian organizations were offering cash to convert poverty-stricken Muslim families.

In a story titled "Cash bribes, faith pawned," the daily Berita Harian reported that some Christian groups were offering monthly cash allowances to disadvantaged Muslims and their families in an attempt to convert them to Christianity. Although the pro-Barisan Nasional newspaper didn't name any names, it ran a pixelized photo of a woman with a caption that read: "Jasmine admits receiving aid from a community church in Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya".

Because of a report that Christians were proselytizing Muslim guests, the Selangor Islamic Religious Department and local police raided a multiracial dinner at the Damansara Utama Methodist Church in Petaling Jaya last week. As a result, the Department was critized for purportedly violating the rights of minority non-Muslims.
