The 'Allah'/Bible issue, 10-point solution is key to managing the polarity


The 10-point solution can co-exis twith the Islamic State Enactments, although I am aware that there are people who think this coexistence is not perfect.

MANY people have been asking for clarification and also my views on the ongoing “Allah”/Bible issue and the validity of the 10-point solution. This column will address this. I wish to place upfront a caveat that the views expressed here are my own in my personal capacity. As this issue is highly sensitive, I have tried my best to be as fair as possible, without taking sides.

1) I repeat what the Prime Minister and my cabinet colleagues, such as Khairy Jamaluddin and Nancy Shukri, have already stated publicly – the Cabinet has reconfirmed the validity and our support for the 10-point solution as was originally announced in April 2011. The 10-point solution was established by the Federal Government as a fair and amicable way to manage the polarity of views between the various religious groups, in particular Christians and Muslims, taking into account the laws of the country.
