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.

G25's Noor Farida unaware of sedition investigation

PETALING JAYA: Datuk Noor Farida Ariffin (pic), a member of the group of eminent Malays known as G25 says she is not aware she is being investigated under the Sedition Act.

Noor Farida, who has been heavily criticised after calling for a stop to khalwat (close proximity) raids on homes, said the police had not contacted her over the matter.

"I only learnt about it from an online news portal," she said.

Malacca police chief Datuk Chuah Ghee Lye confirmed that they were investigating Farida based on police reports lodged against her.

He said they were investigating the allegation under Section 4(1) of the Sedition Act.

Farida had reportedly called for a review of Islamic laws pertaining to khalwat enforcement in private homes.

"I want to lodge a police report too against all those who have taken my statement out of context," she said.

Chuah said the investigation is focussed on the G25 forum organised during the Universiti Malaya Alumni Association on Dec 5-6.

"Farida was just one of the speakers. We will be in contact with her soon to set an appropriate date for her statement to be recorded."

Chuah added that other speakers may also be called to give their statements, depending on the results of the police investigation into the forum.
