Malaysia Arrests 9 Christians on Conversion Claim

A lawyer says Malaysian police have arrested nine Christians accused of trying to convert Muslim university students.

Annou Xavier, who is representing the suspects, says they have
denied the allegation.

Proselytizing of Muslims by members of other religions is a serious crime punishable by prison in this Muslim-majority country, though the reverse is allowed. Muslims are not legally able to change religion.

Xavier says police detained the nine in a university hostel room
near Kuala Lumpur late Tuesday.

Xavier said Wednesday they were visiting friends, but a Muslim student apparently filed a police complaint accusing them of trying to convert Muslims.
