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.

Get priorities right and focus on good governance

This so-called hudud initiative proposed for debate in Parliament raises some disturbing fundamental constitutional issues.

It also questions the core universal values of justice and compassion that were and should be Islam’s inspiration to the world.

Today, extremist groups have given Islam, instead of being celebrated as the religion of peace, a global image of intolerance, discrimination and violence.

Most sadly, it is fostering conflict even between Muslims, instead of enunciating our core values in the historical and infinite reality of oceans of diversity.

These extremists are only creating situations that imperialists and other evil elements are having a field day exploiting.

When will we ever learn?

Let’s respect the real Islamic fundamentals of “Ar-Rahman” and “Ar-Rahim”, justice and compassion, within the framework of the agreed constitutional basics and the beautifully crafted, meaningful and uniting Rukun Negara, a model for multicultural, multi-faith and multi-ethic communities worldwide.

That was Islam in its glorious days: caring, innovative and open, giving the world some of the greatest science and arts ever and progressive breakthroughs in gender equality and justice systems.

Let us as a nation also focus on good governance that urgently addresses at least four issues:

– fighting endemic corruption;

– deal seriously with the wanton crimes against the environment (the Cameron Highlands and bauxite mess are only the face of an eco-crisis);

– promoting economic growth with equity that reduces the great gap between the rich and the poor; and,

– waking up to serious health issues reflected by the massive increase in obesity.

Let’s get our priorities right.
