PETALING JAYA: The G25 group of moderate Muslims has defended its statement on khalwat law by saying that it is an illustration of its stand against moral policing.

In a statement released on its website yesterday, the group expressed its concern over the statements made by a number of religious officials and other individuals who had condemned or even issued threats against Datuk Noor Farida Ariffin following the comments she made last Sunday at a press conference after the Islam in a Constitutional Democracy forum organised by G25.
