PUTRAJAYA, Jan 11 (Bernama) -- The government will not stop any religious preachers from holding talks as long as they comply with the set guidelines and do not touch on issues that may cause religious tensions and affect national security.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa said those who wished to organise talks should file applications with the religious authorities in the state to ensure the invited speaker did not possess any record of causing problems in term of religion, race and security.
