Malaysia - Allah's Name

Post by Amatur Rahmaan on Fri Sep 04, 2009 2:10 pm

"The Catholic church in Malaysia has failed in a bid to suspend a government ban on the use of the word, "ALLAH" in its weekly newsletter after the court rejected an application. The High Court ruling on Thursday effectively upheld the federal government's 2007 ban.
The government directive bars non-Muslims from translating God as "Allah" in their literature, saying it would confuse Muslims. The government ha warned The Herald (the Catholic church's newsletter), that its permit would be revoked if it continued to use the word 'Allah' for God in its Malay-language section. Officials said that "Allah" could only be used to refer to the Muslim Diety."

Asalamu Alaykum

Personally I think it is a good decision because as the reason was given, it might confuse an ordinary layman when he sees Allah Ta'ala's name written that it is something Islamic. From this too we can learn to be very careful when reading any literature. We must be sure of its authenticity etc. Wallahu Ta'ala A'lam.
