Defence of Ibrahim Ali a setback in justice and equality – Sisters in Islam

Published: 10 October 2014

Sisters in Islam (SIS) supports the Global Movement of Moderates Foundation (GMM) position that Perkasa chief Ibrahim Ali’s call to “burn the Bible” is indefensible, and cannot be justified as defending Islam. In any attempt to do so, Muslims are enjoined to abide by the Quranic injunctions to respond with wisdom and without insulting others (An-Nahl:125; Al-An'am:108 ).

By defending Ibrahim, the government is indicating that any type of aggressive behaviour, threats and indeed public incitement are acceptable in the name of "defending Islam".

If the reverse was done and an individual or group called on the public to burn the Quran, it is doubtful that the government would have been so generous.
