Alwi: ‘We want to see the country get back on track where racial harmony and multicultural and religious freedom prevail’.

JUST over a year and a half ago, 25 former top Malay civil servants came out of retirement “to band together as social activists”.

They were alarmed at the direction in which the country was heading, says former director-general of the Public Service Department Tan Sri Alwi Jantan. He was overseas when the group published an open letter calling for consultation on the position and application of Islamic laws in Malaysia in December 2014, but he joined what is now known as G25 when he returned a month later.
