It is not just a Muslim matter that requires Muslims to discuss 'deeper' - It is a matter of concern for all Malaysians irrespective of religion...

It is not just a matter for Islam ...or Muslims, and as such it is important for all Malaysians of different religions/culture be involved in all consultations with regard to laws that affect all Malaysians.

Is it only a matter for Islam ....and Muslims? Certainly not.

I hope that by other 'other relevant parties, Sultan Sharafuddin was talking about Malaysians from the other religious/cultural groups...

Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah has ordered that the Selangor Islamic Religious Council (MAIS) and other relevant parties discuss in depth the proposed amendments to three Acts in relation to conversion.

This follows the decision of the Conference of Rulers recently to get the views of the state Islamic religious councils before making a decision on the proposed amendments to state enactments and the Islamic Family Law (Federal Territories) pertaining to the conversion of minors to Islam.

The three Acts are the Law Reform (Marriage and Divorce) Act 1976, Islamic Family Law (Federal Territories) Act 1984 and the Administration of Islamic Law (Federal Territories) Act 1993. - Star, 3/7/2009, Selangor Sultan calls for indepth discussion on conversion
