THE Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism (MCCBCHST) welcomes the statement by the Law Minister on Sept 7 that there were no proposals to enact law to restrict or control the development of the non-Muslim religions and neither was the matter brought to the cabinet yet.

Thus this statement clearly contradicts with the earlier statement made by the Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (religious affairs), Ahmad Marzuk Shaary who had stated that the government was drafting four new syariah laws “including the control and Restriction on the Propagation of “non-Muslim Religions Bill.”
