PETALING JAYA: The latest move by Federal Territory Islamic Religious Department (Jawi) to appeal the Syariah High Court's decision in discharging Borders Mid Valley manager Nik Raina Nik Abdul Aziz could put the syariah and civil courts on a collision course, claimed a group of prominent leaders.

The group of 25 (G25) prominent Malays calling for a rational dialogue on Islam in Malaysia expressed concern over the action of the Syariah prosecutor in disregarding the High Court and Court of Appeal orders which have instructed the Syariah prosecutor to withdraw and set aside the arrest and prosecution against Nik Raina.
