G25 comprise a group of individuals, rich with experience in various fields with diverse views but a common goal and common vision.
G25 members share a common value that, while recognising Malaysia is a predominantly Muslim country with Islam as the official religion, we believe that its administration should be in line with the constitutional provisions regarding the role of Islam guaranteeing all citizens their fundamental rights to freedom of expression and worship. To this end, we are all agreed that Islam must be administered in a manner that ensures justice to Muslims and non Muslims alike, as this is crucial for peace and stability in our multiracial country.
G25 is a group of influential Malays, and as a civil society organisations, we are able to play a constructive role as the voice of moderation on religion.
Furthermore, we can also make a difference as an advocate for change and reforms to strengthen the institutions of law and order and improve the standards of governance in the administration of the country. The basic principles of good governance are integrity, transparency and accountability.
G25 supports these fundamental principles of a clean government.
G25 is committed to pursuing a just, democratic, peaceful, tolerant, harmonious, moderate and progressive multi-racial, multicultural, multi-religious Malaysia through Islamic principles of Wassatiyah (moderation) and Maqasid Syariah (well-being of the people) that affirm justice, compassion, mercy, equity.
Malaysia is to be led by rule of law, good governance, respect for human rights and upholding the institution of the country.
We aim to ensure, raise awareness, promote that Syariah laws and civil laws should work in harmony and that the Syariah laws are used within its legal jurisdiction and limits as provided for by the federal and state division of powers.
There should be rational dialogues to inform people on how Islam is used for public law and policy that affects the multi-ethnic and multi-religious Malaysia and within the confines of the Federal Constitution, the supreme law of the nation.
We work in a consultative committee of experts to advise the government and facilitate amendments to the state Syariah laws, to align to the Federal Constitution and the spirit of Rukun Negara.
It is imperative to achieve a politically stable, economically progressive Malaysia and to be able to enjoy the harmony, tolerance, understanding and cooperation in this multi-diverse country.
