COMMENT | Islamic conversion of minors absolutely illegal

COMMENT | In his recent TikTok video, a Chinese Muslim convert preacher - Firdaus Wong - was accused of legitimising an unlawful conversion of underage non-Muslim schoolchildren to Islam.

In a four-minute 12-second video, Wong allegedly claimed that there was no problem for one to convert to Islam where age is concerned.

As expected, his alleged statement has stirred uproar and public disquiet, particularly among non-Muslim parents.

Several human rights organisations have also jumped onto the bandwagon, raising alarm over what they claim to be an unethical method purportedly vouched by Firdaus to convert underage schoolchildren to Islam.
