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.

Johor Sultan: No issue if Muslims join festival celebrations of other faiths


KLUANG: There should be no issue if Muslims join their friends of other faiths in celebrating their festivals, says Johor's Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar(pic).

He said that celebrating other festivals was a sign of respect to their friends and neighbours.

"This is what Bangsa Johor is about. It promotes closeness, tolerance and mutual respect for each other regardless of race and religion.

"We should celebrate this in peace and harmony," he said, during a Deepavali gathering organised by the Johor Federation of Indian Organisations (Gappin) here Saturday night.

A large crowd of about 1,600 people had gathered to celebrate the event at Dataran Tasik Kluang.

He hoped that more of such gatherings could be organised for other events such as Hari Raya, Chinese New Year and Christmas, among others.

"Such events are meaningful as it helps to improve relations between me and my people," he added.

Sultan Ibrahim also reminded the Indian community not to be divided by differing political ideologies or allow any individual to do so.

"Stay away. This is my warning to those who intend to come to Johor to cause disunity or split up my people," he said, adding that there was no place for such people in the state.

He stressed that no country would be able to develop if its people were not united.

"The people need to think which way they want to go and what they want to achieve," he added.

He reminded the Indians to always stay united as their voices would be lost if their community was fractured.
