Young Buddhist Association of Malaysia (“YBAM”) express our grave concern over the statement of Chief Justice?Lord President?Federal Court Judge Tun Ahmad Faruz (please correct to the title & name proper) to stop recourse to English Common Law and apply Islamic Law as replacement. If his suggestion be given effect, the Malaysian Legal System will consequently be changed contrary to the consensus of our forefathers over nation building.

Since the Federal Court Decision over the Appeal of Rina Joy involves an appeal by a Malay apostate seeking for Court Order for deletion of Moslem identity on her National Identity Card, as a non-Moslem National Organisation, Young Buddhist Association of Malaysia (“YBAM”) is careful in its response. Nevertheless, YBAM being a National Buddhist Organisation express its concern over the safeguard of fundamental rights and liberties as enshrined in the Federal Constitution.
