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.

Perkasa lambasts “shallow thinking” G25

KUALA LUMPUR: There is no need to establish a consultative committee to discuss the amendment or abolishment of Syariah laws, as existing laws are already clear and sufficient.

So said Malay rights group Perkasa in reply to the G25 group of prominent Malays’ call for the Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) to be abolished.

Perkasa Islamic Affairs Bureau chief Dr Amini Amir Abdullah was quoted by The Star as also lambasting G25 spokesperson Noor Farida Ariffin who recently commented about khalwat.

“Should the G25 oppose any punishment towards acts of khalwat, she (Farida) should refer to those well-versed in religious matters.”

“A khalwat offence cannot be silenced in the context of private and individual rights, because an offence related to Syariah crime is still an offence.

“In this matter, the question of individual rights and privacy do not arise because action must be taken against crimes, with the purpose of upholding the law,” Amini said in a statement.

He added that in Islam, khalwat is still a sin, regardless of whether it was performed in private or public, and that there is no such thing as a “private sin between the offender and Allah.”

Criticising G25’s “shallow thinking”, Amini concluded “They need to focus their struggle in order to empower Islam as the federal religion, and not concern themselves with petty matters, or seek popularity and cheap publicity.”
