Teapot temples of Malaysia demolished
The odd temples of a teapot-worshipping religious sect in Malaysia have been destroyed by authorities. The group’s leader, Ayah Pin, is on the lam; his wives have been arrested, and his devotees are distraught. The crime:
The [local] Islamic affairs department had put them on the wanted list for being involved in teachings deviant to Islamic beliefs. (…) Ayah Pin was declared an apostate for leaving Islam and had spent 11 months in jail in 2001 for his activities.
