IGP: Don't question Court's decision on Kalimah Allah

SEREMBAN: The public has been reminded not to question the decision of the Federal Court concerning the issue of Kalimah Allah, said Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.

"I would like to warn all quarters to be extra careful in making statements because we (police) will not hesitate to take action against them under the Sedition Act," the Inspector-General of Police told reporters here Wednesday.

He said the police would not hesitate to take action against those who questioned the Court's decision to the extent of making seditious remarks.

Last Monday, the Catholic Church's legal fight over the right to use the word 'Allah' to refer to God in its weekly publication, the Herald, ended after the Federal Court here denied its application for leave to appeal.
