Consumerist: Minors Conversion – A Perversion Of Justice & Human Rights Cannot Be Allowed!
Clandestine unilateral conversions of minors hereinafter called ‘secret conversions’ cannot be ‘part and parcel’ of any civilized nation’s legal framework – more so – a member of the present United Nations!
No humane and civilized person (s) with any fraction of religiosity within them will facilitate what is an act that will smash to smithereens, break up and destroy legally constituted families in the name of religious conversion!
It basically deprives a partner to the marriage a basic fundamental right!
This to me and others a vile deed!
It is a very serious violation of human rights charters – an infringement of the moral, legal and constitutional rights of the non-Muslims in Peninsula Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak!
The proposed amendments to the Administration of Islamic Law (Federal Territories) on the conversion of minors is just what Catholic Bishop Paul Tan Chee Ing described – ‘a “flagrant violation of the equality of persons’ provisions of the federal constitution”.
The amendments, tabled in Parliament earlier this week, by dint of the use of the word ‘parent’ instead of ‘parents’, makes it legal for a father or a mother, or guardian, to convert children below the age of 18 to a religion of proprietary choice.
This is mala fide and this is unacceptable!
There is a right and there is a wrong!
This is wrong!
There are now protest and outcries from BN component groups and sympathizers and supporters of the present government!
Malaysians in Peninsula Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak are watching and expecting their representatives to act righteously!
Yes, I expect parliamentarians to vote upholding the highest moral thinking, of righteousness, and irrespective of their political inclinations!
Let us carry ourselves with dignity, decorum and grace of office and of human rights!
