It will ESCALATE and it only takes the extreme in any religious order to take the law into their own hands. The so called Religious Fanatics/Extremist will be revered like Martyrs. They will use this as a Platform for themselves to be known and they don’t care too much on human lives as long as their actions do HARM AND PUT THEIR NAMES UP HIGH AS RELIGIOUS FANATICS.
This has got to stop and even when the top leaders are asking the whole country to stay calm and be level headed incidents like what has happened in Perak surfaces. Isn’t this Copycat and this has got to STOP or else it might just escalate further and deteriorate the already fragile and fluid situation.
