‘I am #26’ wants to help clarify Islamic laws

Finding a solution: Tariq with his daughter Tijan Jauharah. The petition suggested by an Aura Merdeka member has gained 4,000 signatures as of yesterday.

Tariq Ismail, the grandson of the late Deputy Prime Minister Tun Dr Ismail Abdul Rahman and co-founder of Aura Merdeka, which is a civil society group behind the petition, said the effort did not aim to aggravate differences of opinion.
