DAP yet to confirm attendance at hudud forum

(The Star) – The DAP has been invited to the forum on hudud and its implications on non-Muslims in Malaysia.

“The purpose of the forum is not to challenge anybody. Rather, we just want to explore the law and what implementing it would mean to a multi-racial society like Ma­­laysia,” said Institite of Stategic Analysis and Policy Research (Insap) deputy director Kat Wong.

She added that the opposition party has yet to confirm its attendance.

Among those who will be speaking are lawyer Edmund Bon, Terengganu mentri besar’s religious advisor Ustaz Kamal Saidi, Umno’s Young Ulamas working committee chairman Ustaz Fathul Bari Mat Jahaya and International Movement for a Just World president Prof Dr Chandra Muzaffar.

Bar Council president Lim Chee Wee and Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs founding chief executive Wan Saiful Wan Jan will moderate the event.

The forum, organised by MCA think-tank Insap, is free and open to all. It will be held at Wisma MCA, Kuala Lumpur on Sunday from 9.30am to 2.30pm.
