KUALA LUMPUR: Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin wants all Malaysians to remain calm in the wake of the High Court decision on the use of the word “Allah” and respect houses of worship irrespective of religion.
In a statement issued by Istana Negara yesterday, Tuanku Mizan said he hoped that the spirit of unity and mutual respect which formed the backbone of the nation’s strength would at all times be safeguarded.
“To ensure peace and harmony among the followers of different religions, the meaning and reference to “Allah” in the general context should conform to the description fixed by Islam because this practice has all this while been accepted by Malaysians of other faiths,” said Tuanku Mizan. — Bernama
