Why the Malaysian government should drop the concepts of Malay superiority and disentangle Islam from the Malay identity, and why it will not.
Building good relations and empowering individuals is sound politics. This is inferred from current events in Malaysia and France.
The Malaysian government’s argument that banning the use of ‘Allah’ by non-Muslims is fatally flawed, and will lead to more conflict instead of decreasing it.
My take on PAS’ statement that ‘Allah’ may be used by all members of the Abrahamic faiths, and its political implications.
‘Allah’ is an Arabic word meaning ‘God’. It is not exclusive to Islam, and pre-dates the faith. The Malaysian government, however, has yet to accept this in the case of Malaysia v. The Herald.
