The Malaysian Government need to learn that no one owns the word “Allah” nor does any one own “Allah”. Same formula applies to the other names of God be it Yahweh, Ahura Mazda, Krishna, Allah, Ahura Mazda or any other name one can imagine to call on the creator.
As a Muslim I welcome every one to call God with his name in Arabic – “Allah” with equal devotion and honor. Quietly and peacefully this would be the response of over 99% of Muslims in the world. It is time for us not to run over by the few.
