Malaysia: Crown Prince Converts to Catholicism, Shocks Muslim World


Kuala Lumpur | The only son and heir of Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, Tengku Amir Shah, has sent a shockwave throughout the Muslim community worldwide as what People’s magazine has deemed “the real life Romeo and Juliet story of our time”.

The crown prince of the state of Selangor in Malaysia, has relinquished all his possessions and a chance to succeed to the prestigious throne of Selangor to follow his heart and marry Spanish top model and superstar Cristina Gomez, a 16 year old who was propelled to stardom this year when she was noticed on national television in the crowd of a highly anticipated football match.

The Malaysian prince known for his outlandish sex orgies and drug addiction problems, having been through rehab no less than three times in the past 18 months, has promised to change his ways and claims to be a new man.

In an interview this week with Catholic Digest Weekly, the 21 year old man admitted that his encounter with the supermodel basically saved his life. “I was living in a lustful, superficial world, where money and power brought me all the goods of the world: women, cars and drugs. But Cristina changed all that”.  Cristina Gomez who is of catholic faith, asked prince Tengku to convert to Catholicism, as to make their union legal before God and help him achieve righteousness in his life.

The baptism of the former follower of Islam at Santa Maria Cathedral this week in Braga, Portugal, has brought much criticism on the former heir to the Selangor throne by the world muslim community at large.  “This is not a spare of the moment thing. If people cannot accept the choices I’ve made and the new person I have become, then that’s too bad for them” declared the ex-prince in the same interview. “Me and Cristina are happy and that is all that counts” he commented.  The lovers are to be wed this month in San Marco Cathedral in romantic Venice and have not revealed where they are to spend their honeymoon. “That is our little secret” revealed Cristina on a hit Spanish tv talk show this week.

  1. different folks, different stroke . . . . he is already and adult, he can make his own choice as you had yours . . . . RESPECT

  2. He is an adult and made a man decision which he has every right to do. I respect him for that. Conforming for the world is not the qualified requirement. He is a free person. Well done!!

  3. This is not a small matter. There are comments from non-muslims who are very happy. Malay comments are showing anger,indignation and sorrow. But the Malays should think seriously. For quite some time the Christian and other non-muslim missionaries are active in trying to convert the Malays to Christianity and other faiths as the Malays are sons of the soil and it means a great deal if majority or a significant percentage of Malays become non-muslims. Then the non-muslims can control Malaysia. The missionaries are especially after the royal and ruling clans and letting no stone unturned to convert the royal members especially the younger members to Christianity,
    by any means.

    Hence,the Malay community should start thinking seriously,do some soul-searching,
    start Islamic da’wah seriously among the non-muslim Malaysians. Give proper islamic moral education to their younger ones. Otherwise they will soon find themselves in such a big sea of problems that they will not be able to get out of it.

  4. Assalamualaikum

    That’s nothing special

  5. You cannot judge people it’s his own choice. God bless…
