More significant role for Jakim


RECENTLY, there was an outcry among the public when the new federal government announced that the Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) would be reviewed. Given that Jakim has been receiving a hefty share of the national budget, many have raised their concerns on its performance as well as given suggestions on its role in the new Malaysia.

In this regard, I think Jakim could play a significant role if it focuses on the prevention of wrongdoings committed in the public domain rather than private affairs of individuals.
