KEPALA BATAS, Nov 10 — There is no reason for the people to bring up the polemics of Islam because it does not bring good to anybody, said former Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi today.
He said the matter will only create uneasiness in the society, especially among Muslims, and expressed concern that it would cause a split among them.
“The matter has never been questioned before. I don’t see why it should now.
“When we are in a stable situation, no clash, there should not be issues raised to deliberately affect racial unity in the country,” he added.
Abdullah (picture), who is Kepala Batas Member of Parliament, was commenting on a letter sent by a non-Muslim to a news portal questioning the rationale of Malays being forced to be Muslims and the need for non-Muslims to convert to Islam to marry a Muslim. — Bernama
