Singaporean beach resort owner arrested in Malaysia for allowing Buddhists from Singapore to use Muslim prayer room

Yahoo! News New Zealand, 14 Aug 2013
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AFP) - Malaysian police said Tuesday they have arrested a resort owner after he allowed Buddhists to use a Muslim prayer room in the country's latest religious controversy.
The owner of the resort in the southern state of Johor, who was detained on Sunday, is being investigated for "defiling a place of worship with intent to insult the religion", said district police chief Nor Rasid.
Local media said the 45-year-old Muslim -- a Singaporean who is a permanent resident of Malaysia -- allowed a group of Buddhists from Singapore to use the Muslim prayer room on his premises for chanting because no other hall was available. Full story
