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.

Think tank: Get to the root of why Muslims leave the faith

Islamic Renaissance Front says the government and Islamic religious authorities should ask if the problem lies in the way they administer Islam or the way Islamic teachers approach Islam.

PETALING JAYA: The government and the religious authorities should find out why Muslims are leaving the faith if they are concerned about such matters, according to an Islamic think tank.

Islamic Renaissance Front chairman Dr Ahmad Farouk Musa suggested several reasons, including the dogmatic teachings of Islam, the seemingly repressive way in which the religion is being administered and the rigid way religious teachers approach the subject.

“If the problem is in the way Islam is represented by the current administration, then we have to reflect on this. There should be self introspection and self reflection by the government and the Islamic religious authorities,” Farouk told FMT.

He was commenting on Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki’s statement that the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission as well as the Federal Territories Islamic Religious Department would investigate Muslims who took part in an event organised by The Atheist Republic Consulate of Kuala Lumpur.

The deputy minister in the prime minister’s department said the gathering which was held last week was organised by “non-believers”.

But Farouk was quick to point out that when it came to faith, it was something between men and God.

“I do not see any justification if a state wants to interfere in an individual’s faith.”

The activist reminded the government and the Islamic authorities that there was no coercion in Islam.

Meanwhile, the MP for Parit Buntar, Dr Mujahid Yusof, suggested engaging those who were involved in atheism in a dialogue session.

“From whichever faith you are, atheism is unacceptable. It cannot be considered as a belief if they do not have any faith. The authorities should intervene if such beliefs encroach into the lives of Muslims and start to propagate”, he said.
