More often than not, Islam is its own greatest proof of intolerance and that it belongs more in the dark ages than the modern world.

Its director-general Datuk Wan Mohamad Sheikh Abdul Aziz said the department could act against irresponsible bloggers, regardless of their religious background.
"Right now, the police and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission are still trying to trace the blogger said to have insulted Prophet Muhammad.
"We will come in once the culprit is found," he said.
Wan Mohamad also said there were bound to be "extremists" among religious followers or leaders in view of the country's multi-ethnicity.
He also said Jakim would not lodge any police report against the blogger as the matter was still being investigated by the police.
