PETALING JAYA: The group of 25 (G25) prominent Malays calling for rational dialogue on the position of Islam in Malaysia are unperturbed by the withdrawal of one of its signatories, saying more people have shown interest in joining the cause.

G25 organiser Datuk Noor Farida Ariffin (pic) told a news portal that Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Din’s decision to pull out was “no loss” as at least 10 other distinguished Malays have expressed an interest to join the group since the publication of its open letter to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak on Dec 9.
