The Grace Global Prayer Church in Rasah, Seremban, had its windows shattered.

According to reports emerging, the incident occurred between Thursday 6pm and Friday evening, during which time the church was empty.

The Grace Global Prayer church is the SECOND church in Seremban to have been struck after the Sidang Injil Borneo Church had its front doors scorched by unknown arsonists.

It is the 12th church in the past week to have been attacked since certain quarters from the Muslim community expressed outrage at a recent court decision to allow a Catholic publication, the Herald, to use the word 'Allah' in its Malay-language edition.

It was discovered yesterday evening when members of the Grace Global Prayer Church - situated at the corner of a row of two-storey shoplots - arrived at its premises to conduct worship services and saw the broken window.
