Unjust and unnecessary

It is ridiculous that the Government tells the world that its policies on equality and non-discrimination apply only to non-Muslims while Muslim women must continue to suffer discrimination.

WHILE Datuk Seri Shahrizat Jalil’s appointment as the Prime Minister’s Special Adviser for Muslim Women and Social Development Affairs may be politically inspired, it has raised expectations that the Government would finally deliver on the long-standing demands by Muslim women to be treated as citizens of equal worth and dignity.
