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.

Suhakam reminds of religious freedom after Jais arrests 50 Shiite Pakistanis

The Human Rights Commission (Suhakam) has emphasised the need to protect religious freedom after the Selangor Islamic Affairs Department (Jais) arrested 50 Pakistanis who were Shiite Muslims.

The Pakistanis were arrested while participating in Ashura, an annual ceremony celebrated by Shiite Muslims.

“Suhakam refers to the arrest of 50 Shiite Pakistani nationals by Jais for allegedly participating in a religious ceremony.

“In keeping with its overall mandate, Suhakam maintains the position that everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.

“This right shall include the freedom to have or to adopt a religion or belief of his choice and freedom, either individually or in community with others in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in worship, observance, practice and teaching,” said Suhakam chairperson Razali Ismail.He stressed that no one should be subjected to coercion that would impair their freedom of religion or belief of choice.“These are in line with the universal standards as contained in, among others, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UNDHR) and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR),” he said.The vast majority of Muslims in Malaysia are Sunnis while Shiites are considered as “deviant” by the government.
