I found this funny! I quote:
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — The Malaysian government has reiterated that non-Muslims cannot use the word "Allah," sparking concern Friday among Christians who use it to refer to God in their Malay-language Bible and other publications. Abdullah Zin, the de facto minister for Islamic affairs, told reporters Thursday that the Cabinet is of the view that "Allah" refers to the Muslim God and can only be used by Muslims, who comprise about 60 percent of Malaysia's population. "The use of the word 'Allah' by non-Muslims may arouse sensitivity and create confusion among Muslims in the country," Abdullah said.
If that happens, then the word "bhumiputra" cannot be used by Malay's as that is based upon sanskrit which in turn is a Hindu origin language!, lol. How funny! Why is that many times people get involved in religion and their brains dribble out of their rear ends?
All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
