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.

Muslim only laundrette

We, members of G25, strongly and wholeheartedly support the recent stand taken by His Royal Highness Sultan Johor on the issue of the Muar launderette. Rightly so, HRH reprimanded the owner for the divisive action in suggesting that only Muslims are allowed to use it. We are extremely glad and relieved that the Sultan has taken the lead in stamping out extremism. We, in Malaysia, must celebrate diversity in race, culture and religion.

These have been the cornerstone of our success as a nation and it is important to stamp out extremism in all its forms. Not to do so would lead us to a path of a failed state which would be a disaster to Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Like minded and moderate Muslims must now speak up and be counted. We also urge like-minded politicians to do likewise and openly support the path of moderation as expounded by the Prime Minister in many of his International speeches. Saying it aloud locally will have a big impact.

G25 hopes that the royal intervention will send a reminder that we all have a responsibility to treat each other with respect for our differences. The religious institutions in particular should not impose unnecessary restrictions that will affect race relations and national integration. Muslims want to be an integral part of the social fabric whether they are students, at the work place, or living in multiracial neighborhoods. We are all Malaysians, whatever our race and religion.
