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.

Ex-MD says Khazanah not meant to aid Bumiputera

Tuesday, March 12, 2019

 

SUBANG JAYA, March 12 — Former Khazanah Nasional Bhd managing director Tan Sri Mohd Sheriff Mohd Kassim said today he was surprised when the prime minister claimed the state investment firm was set up to help the Bumiputera.

 

Speaking at the ‘Malaysian Strategic Financial Outlook Forum’ earlier today, the member of pro-moderation group G25 said he had deliberated as to whether Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was given different information on Khazanah’s role.

 

“When Tun Mahathir came up with the statement, we were all surprised and wondered [about] his intention or whether somebody has been feeding him some new ideas.

 

“But I am happy to say there was a meeting between the MD at the time and Tun was given the explanation he was reminded what Khazanah was set up for and he had accepted it,” said Mohd Sheriff, referring to Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar who resigned from Khazanah on July 26, 2018.

 

Dr Mahathir had in last July said Khazanah was created to support Bumiputera equity in Malaysia but had diverged from this objective.

He said the fund was expressly set up to prop up the value of shares allocated to the community and prevent these from being sold off to other groups.

 

The Edge Media Group chief executive Datuk Ho Kay Tat said at the forum that Khazanah was never established to support the Bumiputera.

He said there were other agencies set up for this purpose.

 

“I don’t know where it was coming from there were other agencies that were supposed to help develop Bumiputera.

 

“When Tun said that, there were some concern whether it was an indication that the government wants to sell some of these assets back to entrepreneurs,” said Ho before about 100 participants at the forum, which was organised by the Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute (ASLI).
