SIS challenge against fatwa declaring it a deviant group sent back to High Court


PUTRAJAYA: The legal challenge by Sisters in Islam (SIS) against a fatwa declaring it a "deviant group" will return to the High Court to be heard. 

The Federal Court on Tuesday (Sept 25) decided that the judicial review application filed by SIS' corporate body SIS Forum (Malaysia) challenging the Selangor Fatwa Committee's order will be remitted back to the High Court to decide the merits, which included whether a non-syariah court had jurisdiction over the matter.
