KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had an audience with Yang Di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin on Wednesday to explain the issue on the use of the word “Allah” and measures taken by the Government to “find a solution to the problem.”

A statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office said Tuanku Mizan had consented to the measures taken by the Government, and the Prime Minister had informed Cabinet Ministers about the meeting at its weekly meeting Wednesday.

The statement also said that as the matter had been taken to court, it was proper that everyone should respect the legal process in the country.

”The Government has already filed an appeal against the decision of the High Court.

”While the appeal process is going on, it is our responsibility not to do anything that can jeopardise the interest and well-being of the people,” the statement said.

The audience with the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong is a normal practice adopted by Najib every Wednesday morning before the Cabinet meeting. -- Bernama
