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.

Jokowi tweets warning against intolerance

Jakarta. President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo has given a clear warning against intolerant mass organizations on his Twitter account, following a series of raids by hardline groups on shops, restaurants and malls.

"Law enforcers should not hesitate to take firm action against mass organizations that are violating the law and menacing the society," Jokowi posted on his official Twitter account on Monday evening (19/12).

The warning followed a public outcry on social media after the FPI raided several shopping malls in Surabaya, East Java, on Sunday.

The FPI denied they were raiding the malls and claimed they were only reminding shopkeepers to follow an edict issued by the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) banning Muslims from wearing Christmas outfits and accessories.

Jokowi summoned National Police Chief Gen. Tito Karnavian on Tuesday to discuss the incident.

Later Tito reprimanded Muslim organizations, including the hardline Islamic Defenders' Front (FPI), for conducting the raids and ordered them to stop.

Two weeks ago, another mass organization in Bandung, West Java, had ended a Christmas celebration at the Sabuga convention center in the city.

Several days after, the West Java Police and Bandung Police chiefs were replaced, although the police denied the move was related to the Sabuga incident.
