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.

‘Jailed drug users may spread disease after release’

KUALA LUMPUR: A medical professor has warned that putting drug users in prison may threaten the health of the rest of the public once they are released.

Adeeba Kamarulzaman, who is the dean of the Faculty of Medicine at Universiti Malaya (UM), said the prison environment could amplify chronic diseases, especially among drug users, who may be predisposed to these diseases.

“There is an ongoing risk of contracting chronic diseases in prisons because of poor nutrition and a poor environment,” she said at a roundtable discussion on enhancing the health and criminal justice outcomes of prisoners in Malaysia and other Southeast Asian countries.

The discussion was held at the Institute for Strategic and International Studies (Isis) Malaysia.

Adeeba said the fact that most drug users were later released could prove unhealthy for the general public.

“Once prisoners who have contracted these diseases are released back into the public, then you have mobility of the disease.”

On the other hand, she said, prisons also presented the opportunity to treat these diseases because of the amount of time prisoners spend there.

However, this would require adequate medical care.

“Both the legal and medical systems must be brought together to improve the health of not just the prisoners, but the surrounding community as well.”
