Of late the Facebook group ‘Menentang penggunaan nama Allah oleh golongan bukan Muslim’ has been getting a lot of attention among media watchers especially those who are following the name of God issue. This Facebook group has managed to garner more than a quarter of a million members in the space of a couple of weeks.
While we uphold our belief in freedom of speech and expression I think it is imperative for all concerned Malaysians to read this analysis of the group and its postings by the Centre For Policy Initiatives (CPI). The CPI analysis is HERE.
The Centre for Policy Initiatives was formally established as a non-profit policy reform organization in June 2007. Its mission is focused on providing the policy interested public, academia, private sector, government and other key stakeholders with accurate information, data and analysis on vital national issues affecting the country’s economy and society. The Centre also aims to act as a independent and uncompromising watchdog on democratization, good governance and public policy reform.
