Do not Suspend The Registration of A Society Easily Before Investigating The Parties Involved

Saturday, 03 March 2012 10:52

Young Buddhist Association of Malaysia (YBAM) expresses its deep regret that the registration of Kedah Buddhist Association was suspended by the Kedah Registrar of Societies, without a thorough understanding of the details.

The Kedah Buddhist Association is an established institute with a long history. Over the years, it has been involved actively in Dharma propagation work. During all these years, its committee members and leaders have been serving selflessly in promoting Buddhist activities and charity work which benefitted the general public.

Based on certain complaints, the Kedah Registrar of Societies suspended the registration of Kedah Buddhist Association, without conducting in-depth investigation into the various parties concerned. Such hasty decision makes people feel that there is no respect for freedom of society in Malaysia.

YBAM hereby urges the Registrar of Societies and even the Ministry of Home Affairs to seriously look into this matter and take immediate actions to understand from the various parties concerned, so that the Kedah Buddhist Association can function normally as soon as possible.
