END OF THE ROAD FOR CATHOLIC CHURCH TO USE THE WORLD ‘ALLAH’ IN MALAYSIA

The Catholic Church's long battle to use the word Allah in newsweekly Herald came to an end today after the dismissal of its review application.
A five-man bench led by Tan Sri Abdull Hamid Embong unanimously held that here had been no procedural unfairness in the Federal Court's earlier decision not to grant leave.
He added that the threshold for the review had not been met. The court did not give any order on costs.
A seven-member panel of federal court judges on June 23, 2014, dismissed the church's application for leave to appeal the Court of Appeal's decision to ban Herald from using the Arabic word for "God" in its Bahasa content.
Chief Justice Tun Arifin Zakaria was among the four on the panel who dismissed the church's application, in a 4-3 "skin of our teeth" judgment, as the church's lawyers have called it, that saw three other judges dissenting.
The other judges in the majority decision were Tan Sri Raus Shariff, Tan Sri Zulkefli Ahmad Makinuddin and Tan Sri Suriyadi Halim Omar.
The dissenting judges were Tan Sri Richard Malanjum, Tan Sri Jeffrey Tan Kok Hwa and Datuk Zainun Ali.
Besides Hamid, other judges sitting today were Tan Sri Ahmad Maarop, Tan Sri Hasan Lah, Datuk Ramly Ali and Datuk Azahar Mohamed.
