Purpose

An appeal to the Islamic religious authorities especially the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (JAIS) to stop all agitations and incitements against the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malaysia and to hold an open discussion (muzakarah) with it.

Background

The Islamic religious authorities have often been defaming and inciting the people against the Jamaat in the mass media. The latest was in a TV1 "Forum Perdana Hal Ehwal Islam" program aired on 13 September. 2012 at 9.00pm that was organized by the Selangor Mufti's department in conjunction with Selangor International Islamic University College (KUIS), Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (Jakim) and Radio and Television Malaysia (RTM). The Jamaat regrets that it has never been given the space and opportunity to defend itself against the allegations that have been thrown at it.

Request

The Jamaat requests that an open muzakarah be held on the question of "Ahmadiyyat : Islam or Not ?"

Why Open Muzakarah?

1.The muzakarah will be in line with the command of Allah swt :

"Call unto the way of thy Lord with wisdom and goodly exhortation, and argue with them in a way that is best. Surely, thy Lord knows best who has strayed from His way; and He knows those who are rightly guided." (Surah An Nahl 16:126)

2. The open muzakarah or dialogue will enable the government, the security authorities, the mass media and the public to get accurate and correct information from both JAIS and the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Malaysia.

3. Holding an open muzakarah is better than conducting raids and trespassing, or committing abuse of power.

4. An open muzakarah can prevent worsening the situation where the demonization of the Jamaat in Malaysia can lead to incidents of intimidation and violence against Jamaat members.
