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.

Moderate member Tawfik files suit against Hadi's Bill

PETALING JAYA: Moderate member Mohamed Tawfik Ismail has filed a suit seeking to declare PAS’ Private Member’s Bill as unconstitutional and that it flouts Parliament procedures.

Naming Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia and its secretary Datuk Roosme Hamzah as defendants, Tawfik said the Dewan Rakyat’s decision to allow a motion to table the Bill by PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang also is in contempt of the Rulers’ Conference as prior consent was not obtained.

The former Umno MP and son of the country’s second deputy prime minister Tun Dr Ismail Abdul Rahman filed the court papers Friday afternoon.

His solicitors are expected to serve the papers on the defendants on Wednesday.

Tawfik is seeking 10 declarations and orders that would effectively stop the tabling of the Bill to amend the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act.

On Wednesday, the Government decided not to table the Private Member's Bill to amend the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act or RUU 355.

In announcing the decision, Barisan Nasional chairman Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said it was done in line with the principle of consensus.
