PM's adviser: Liberalism as much a threat to Islam as terrorism
Prime Minister's Department's religious adviser Abdullah Md Zin said liberalism is as big a threat to Islam as radicalism and terrorism.
He said wasatiyah (moderation) calls on Muslim to take the "middle path" in practising their faith.
He said liberals are those who interpret the Quran on their own and challenge Islamic principles and syariah law.
"They usually bring different views, which while interesting, end up disregarding Islam," he said.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
