NOTE OF PROTEST BY THE MALAYSIAN CONSULTATIVE COUNCIL OF BUDDHISM, CHRISTIANITY, HINDUISM, SIKHISM & TAOISM (MCCBCHST)

From the Introduction:

“The constitutional guarantee that “Every person has the right to profess and practise his religion” has been substantially eroded by the majority decision o the Federal Court, Malaysia’s highest court, in Lina Joy’s case1. The latter is the culmination of a series of court cases and governmental actions that indicates an increasing Islamisation of law and public policy in Malaysia.

This creeping Islamisation process has created a sense of fear amongst non Muslims comprising Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, Taoists and others, who form about 45% of the population of the country. Many Malaysians from all races and religions are frightened how easily the safeguards entrenched and enshrined 50 years ago in our Federal Constitution are now being eroded through the back door.”
