(The article below is from my sister, Aeshah Adlina’s, blog…)

Alhamdulillah, the Malaysian Court of Appeal rules that the church application to strike out the government’s appeal against a High Court ruling that allowed a Catholic weekly newspaper, Herald to use the word ‘Allah’ is dismissed.

Substantive appeal will be held on 10th September 2013.

Held at the Palace of Justice court complex, the three-person panel lead by Justice Abu Samah Nordin, and including Justices Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahim and Rohana Yusuf, were hearing submissions by the Church, Government and the Islamic religious councils from the states of Terengganu, Selangor, Kedah, Johor, Wilayah Persekutuan and Malacca, which were made intervener in the suit.
