Malaysian court to Christians: You can’t say ‘Allah’

Malaysia’s highest court has rejected a challenge from the Catholic Church seeking to overturn a ban on non-Muslims using the word “Allah” to refer to God.

..On Monday, a panel of judges at the Federal Court in Putrajaya ruled 4 to 3 that the word was not an integral part of the Christian faith, upholding the decision of the appeals court.

It’s likely that the ban is politically motivated, according to William Case, a political scientist with the City University of Hong Kong’s Department of Asian and International Studies.

Malaysia’s Prime Minister Najib Razak ..his party failed to win a majority in the last election and he needs to recapture the support of the country’s ethnic Malay, and mostly Muslim, community.
