Welcome to YBAM Official Website!
Young Buddhist Association of Malaysia (YBAM) welcome and appreciate the 25 prominent Malay leaders, who publicly supported a debate regarding all suggestions related to Syariah law. As a Muslim, this needs a lot of courage and responsibility. Malaysia is a country that rules with The Doctrine of Mean, all government’s policy must take the welfare of all the people into consideration, including the feelings of all races. The speech of political leaders must also present the perception and attitude of a National Leader, and they must abandon narrow-minded thinking and extreme behaviour.
