    YBAM opposes the Private Member's Bill to amend the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act, 1965 

    The Young Buddhist Association of Malaysia (YBAM) supports The Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism, and Taoism in calling for the rejection of the amendment of the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965 (Act 355). As such the YBAM, as a national organisation representing 270 Buddhist groups throughout the country, gives its full support to all MPs and State Assemblymen who are opposing the amendment of Act 355. By rejecting this amendment, we will prevent the emergence of two different criminal jurisdiction systems in the country, thereby safeguarding our Federal Constitution.  

    The amendment to Act 355 will greatly increase the upper limit of the criminal jurisdiction of the Syariah Courts. This will result in the country having different legal systems that will provide heavier sentencing for misdemeanor, and cause Muslims and non-Muslims who face similar charges to receive different or unequal punishments.  

    YBAM also call on the Malaysian Buddhist community and the general public to speak up and oppose the implementation of any legislation pertaining to Syariah Criminal Law.  

    If the bill to amend Act 355 is passed, a portion of the Syariah criminal law advocated by Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (PAS) will be implemented immediately. This in essence will mark the beginning of a gradual process towards theocratic rule in Malaysia. If this amendment is passed, our country’s present legal system will disintegrate and our secular system will be destroyed.

    In times of adversity, the Buddha’s teachings (Dharma) always serve as the guidance in our life and help us to find peace in heart. By penetrating the true meaning of Sutras, we will learn better about Dharma and practise it in life. With this, we can help ourselves and others to lead a better life.

    Young Buddhist Association of Malaysia has invited its Religious Advisor Ven. Chuan Wen and her Dharma Practitioners team to conduct a study group for the YBAM volunteers from May – Aug 2016. ‘Review on the Platform Sutra of the Sixth Patriarch’ written by Ven. Guo Yu was used as the study material of the study group. The study group was completed on 23 August 2016. The participants benefitted a lot from the study group. YBAM is also considering organising similar study group in the future.

    One of the participant Ben Xing shared that, ‘Nowadays, whenever I notice there’s negative emotion in myself, I’ll remind myself learn not to attach on the form of the occurrence, but to recover the truth of ‘Voice is just a voice’ and remove the preset mindset and response in me. This is reducing my personal problem, simplifying and enhancing my life quality.’
