G25 is fully committed to the Constitution

WE, G25, are deeply touched by Aisyah Osman’s vigorous defence of freedom of speech, where she has stated that whether one is Islamist or secular, it is a fundamental right in a democracy that must be respected to the fullest extent by everyone. Bravo! She also represents, Young Professionals, a group founded by dissenting lawyers whose goals, according to their profile, appears to preserve, protect and defend the Federal Constitution.

We wish to ask Aisyah Osman to explain why Iksim (Malaysian Islamic Strategic Research Institute) lodged a police report against Prof Datuk Shad Saleem Faruqi over his article in The Star on the Nov 23, 2017, about religious radicalism on the rise. Why did Jawi instigate the arrest and detention of prominent Turkish academician and author Mustafa Akyol who came to Malaysia at the invitation of the Islamic Renaissance Front to participate in a forum and to deliver talks on his thoughts on Islam based on the book that he recently published?
