KUCHING, March 11 — Sarawak Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri James Masing today criticised Umno and PAS for urging the government to appeal the decision by the High Court to allow a judicial review by a Sarawakian Christian to use “Allah” in her religious education.

Masing branded the demand as ridiculous, especially by any political party in a multi-religious and multi-racial country like Malaysia.

“It is my hope that we should allow men of religion and court to decide on religious issues and not politicians,” Masing who is also Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) president told Malay Mail said when asked to respond to the statement issued by Muafakat Nasional (MN).

He reminded the two parties that demanding the federal government to go against the court’s judgment is tantamount to seeking a review of Article 11 of the Federal Constitution that allows for freedom of religion in the country.
