Dialogue with Dr. Mujahid to seek clarification on Islam under new government

By Ainu Shafira

GOMBAK, 21 September 2018: Due to controversy on the new government’s stance on Islam, International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) has brought Minister in Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs), Dr. Mujahid Yusof Rawa, the person of authority on the issue, for a dialogue to clarify speculations which have confused many parties.

The dialogue with the Minister on the issue “Islam in The New Government Era” was held at Main Auditorium, IIUM on Thursday (20 September) which was open to IIUM’s students and the public. It  was officiated by Deputy Rector (Academic and Industrial Linkages), Prof. Dr. Isarji Hj. Sarudin.

The objective of this dialogue series was for the students to practise and apply intellectual discourse, ask questions and voice out their thoughts on the issue.

Dr. Mujahid said, “Before Pakatan Harapan (PH) won the election and formed the government, there was this perception that the new government had an anti-Islam agenda, and on the first day of cabinet meeting, some people even thought that the new government was about to abolish JAKIM and the institution of King. Let me tell you that this will never happen.”

“The commitment of the new government is that we do not only want the administration to go on smoothly but we want the administration of JAKIM to be better than that of the previous government. We will guarantee that the Islamic (syariah) laws and the institution of our King and JAKIM will be preserved,” he added.

He explained what he meant by the context of being better than before, that is, it must be looked upon from the perspective of a new political framework which, he said, is different from the previous one.

“If we still look from the angle of the old political framework, it will be meaningless to the new government that we now called Malaysia Baru,” he said.

To a question on the much talked about issue of Lesbianism, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT), Dr. Mujahid responded, “LGBT have existed for long time in Malaysia but the previous government did not talk much about the issue, and the new government has decided to confront rather than to reverse the problem.”

He continued, “People mostly misunderstood and take it in negative sense when they talk about it. LGBT is not recognised in Malaysia but they should get their right not to be hurt or mistreated by the people, and should receive fair treatment. However, if they commit crime, they will be punished according to the law of the country like the others.”

“I would remind everyone that Malaysia will never accept LGBT as we are against liberalism which do not conform with our values,” he added.

He ended his speech expressing the hope that the next generation would strongly hold to the three Islamic notions: rahmatan lil alamin, maqasid syariah and fiqh Malizi – that have been established and firmly held by the new government. He also admitted that the Islamic administration might take years, not only five years, to achieve its goals because once they solve the problem, there will arise other problems.

More than 500 people attended the dialogue, among them were IIUM students, the public and media representatives. The event was followed by question and answer session that provided students with a platform to seek clarification from the authority on such controversial issues.

It was organised by IRKHS Students’ Society (IRKHSSS) in collaboration with Persatuan Belia HARMONI Gombak, IRK Students’ Secretariat (ISRAK), Law Students’ Society (LAWSOC), Persatuan Kebangsaan Pelajar Islam Malaysia (PKPIM) and SHIELD.***
