What we stand for

G25 is committed to pursue a just, democratic, peaceful, tolerant, harmonious, moderate and progressive multi-racial, multi cultural, multi religious Malaysia through Islamic principles of Wassatiyah (moderation) and Maqasid Syariah (well-being of the people) that affirms 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 effects 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.

Time to consider NUCC recommendations

PETALING JAYA: In the wake of several issues which have stoked racial and religious tensions, including the brawl at Low Yat Plaza, G25 believes that it is time for the Government to adopt the recommendations by the National Unity Consultative Council (NUCC).

"The timing and circumstances are right for the Government to seriously consider and adopt the recommendations made in the recent Report by the NUCC, after 20 months of deliberations, including its nine point key outcomes and the proposal to enact a National Harmony Law and to establish a Reconciliation Commission," said G25 in a statement on Thursday.

Among the recommendations by the NUCC were increased levels of consultation between ethnic and religious groups, increased democratic literacy and political maturity, the establishment of a non-judicial mechanism for mediation and conflict resolution, the proficiency of Bahasa Malaysia and other community’s languages and increased accessibility to public-sector services.

The statement added that there is a need to incorporate the recommendations made in the NUCC Report in school, college and university curriculums.

Another recommendation by G25 was for a "serious review" to be conducted on Biro Tata Negara (BTN).

G25 also called on Government and political leaders to make a stand that Malaysia must remain a moderate and tolerant nation.

"The G25 would like to take this opportunity to call on the people of Malaysia and the Government to stand together in promoting and pro-actively advocating racial harmony, tolerance, understanding and cooperation amongst all the races and to take a firm stand, and decisive and quick action against those extremist and divisive groups and individuals," read the statement.

On Dec 8, 2014, The Star published G25’s open letter calling for a review of syariah and civil law in line with the supremacy of the Federal Constitution.

Originally consisting of 25 prominent Malays, most of whom are former high-ranking civil servants, the group now has 53 members.
