Sisters in Islam’s (SIS) legal challenge against a fatwa by the Selangor Islamic Religious Council (Mais), which was scheduled to take place today, has been unfortunately postponed again.
Prior to the date of the hearing, both sides had already forwarded to the court all necessary documents and submissions. Nevertheless, the hearing was unable to proceed today due to medical reasons by the opposing counsel.
The next hearing date has been fixed for 17th June 2019.
SIS expresses appreciation to all our volunteers and supporters who had taken time out from their busy schedules to show their support for us at KL High Court today.
The absence of hate speech and racist smear campaigns leading up to today indicates a positive level of maturity in our society and clearly shows that the majority of Malaysians are, in fact, peace-loving. The encouragement that we received both offline and online reflects not only recognition for the importance of the work that we do, but also the eagerness of Malaysians to see justice being upheld.
