Proposed anti-propagation Bill only for Federal Territories, says Idris Ahmad

PETALING JAYA: The proposed Bill to prevent the propagation of non-Muslim beliefs to Muslims will only apply to the Federal Territories, says Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Religious Affairs) Idris Ahmad.

He also said the Bill was not new as 10 states in the country had similar enactments since the 1980s, and only four states – Federal Territories (Labuan, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya), Penang, Sabah and Sarawak – did not.
