The Herald May use the Word Allah
The High Court of Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur has ruled that the Herald is free to use the word 'Allah' in its weekly publication called the Herald. It ruled that the Home Minister's order to ban the use of the word Allah was illegal, null and void.
This ruling follows the judicial review filed by the Titular Roman Catholic Archbishop, Tan Sri Murphy Pakiam, on February this year. In it, he sought to seek the declaratons that the decision by the Home Ministry prohibiting the use of the word in the Herald was illegal and that the word Allah is not exclusive to Islam.
