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.

G25's Noor Farida to lead HRDF

Former ambassador of Malaysia to the Netherlands Noor Farida Mohd Ariffin has been appointed as the chairperson of the Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF).

Noor Farida is also known as an outspoken member of the G25 group, which comprises eminent former civil servants.

In a statement today, HRDF said the appointment was effective Jan 1.

"Farida has had a long and distinguished career in public service as a judge, legal adviser and diplomat, most notably as the ambassador of Malaysia to the Netherlands.

"Since her retirement from the Foreign Ministry in 2012, Farida has, among others, headed the law reform committee at the National Council of Women Organisations; she also serves on the boards of EcoWorld Berhad and Aerospace Technology Systems Corp Sdn Bhd," it said.

Apart from Farida's long career as a diplomat, she had also served as a Sessions Court judge and acted as the director of the Legal Aid Bureau.

She was also previously seconded by the government to the Commonwealth Secretariat in London as the director of its Women and Development Programme.

Noor Farida's entry into HRDF comes amid graft allegations within the agency last year.

HRDF had pledged its full cooperation over claims that RM300 million was misappropriated from the fund.
