According to the report in today's Star Nazri said, "Christians in Sabah and Sarawak should be allowed to use the word “Allah” because it has been part of their custom for decades........."
But "......they must respect the sensitivities of those in the peninsula, who are uncomfortable with the use of the word by non-Muslims, and not use the word here"
“I have been to a church in Sabah and I know that the Kadazans and Ibans refer to God as Allah. The Muslims there are used to it. That is their custom, let it be."
“But when they are in semenanjung (peninsular Malaysia), then they must respect our custom here, which means that you cannot use the word ‘Allah’, because people here cannot accept it...."
But okay before you flers start firing off comments blaming Umno for this Nazri was quick to add that this was merely his personal opinion on the Allah issue.
