In the above article, Mujahid Yusof Rawa told The Malaysian Insider:
“And we have also clearly mentioned that the new laws will not interfere with Article 3 of the Federal Constitution, which states that Islam is the official religion of the federation and other sections which talk about the rights of the Malays and the rulers,” he added.
Exasperated by the attacks from Muslim groups which claimed the bills were drafted to uphold the “liberal-secular” conventions of human rights and drafted by those who were anti-Malay and anti-Islam, Mujahid countered by pointing out that he was himself an Islamic scholar.
“I don’t know what is Islamic to them. I am an Islamic scholar. They are saying that they can condemn other religions but the same cannot be done to them. That is not Islamic,” he said.
The bills, he noted, are “very Islamic” as all stipulations in them were based on the teachings of the Quran.
re: “… Article 3 of the Federal Constitution, which states that Islam is the official religion of the federation … “
Article 3 of the Federal Constitution says that Islam is the religion of the Federation and not the official religion of the Federation.
re: “I don’t know what is Islamic to them. I am an Islamic scholar”.
Is Mujahid a real Islamic scholar or is he only a PAS’s scholar?
