Allah Yeses banned

The Selangor Islamic Religious Council (MAIS) has now banned the Indonesian song 'Allah Peduli' (Allah Cares) because of the word Allah in its lyrics.

MAIS chairman Datuk Mohamad Adzib Mohd Isa said today the song by Indonesian singer Agnes Monica used the word 'Allah' when referring to Jesus Christ and anyone found playing the song can be fined up to RM1,000 under the Non-Muslim Religious Enactment 1988.

Mohamad Adzib said the word "Allah" was repeatedly used in the song and the lyrics ended with words "Tak akan pernah dibiarkannya ku bergumul sendiri sebab Allah Yeses ku mengerti."
He said under the enactment, action can be taken against non-Muslims for using 'Allah' to describe their God.

This latest move comes just a day after MAIS threatened legal action against the Bar Council for conducting two online polls on the usage of 'Allah' for non-Muslims, under the same enactment .

It was reported that the council was consulting their legal advisers on the appropriate action to take against the Bar Council.

Mohamad Adzib said the ban is in place to prevent Muslims from being confused.
