Recently, images of Grace Residences ‘cross’ sign in Jelutong made its way via social media was highlighted by a group of overzealous bigots, to an extent of claiming that it was the largest cross sign in the world.

The ‘cross’, originally thought to be a sign, was nothing more than a series of lights which when lit appeared as a cross sign.

According to NST, Penang Mufti Datuk Seri Dr Wan Salim asked for matters to be resolved.

“I am of the opinion that this must be handled carefully and wisely according to existing legal avenues.”

“The authorities must investigate if it was done purposely or it was a coincidence.”


“I am requesting the state government, through the Deputy Chief Minister 1’s office, to get the developer to change the location of the lights so that it does not appear as a cross sign when lit, as several parties have objected.”

He also highlighted that the Federal Constitution forbids any form of effort to promote or preach other religions to Muslims.
