Mufti: Jawi has nothing to do with Islam

  • Perlis mufti Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin says Jawi is a language script inherited by the Malays and has nothing to do with any religion.

KANGAR, Aug 9 (Sin Chew Daily) -- Perlis mufti Datuk Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin said Jawi is a language script inherited by the Malays and has nothing to do with any religion.

He said many Malaysians had misinterpreted Jawi in an attempt to defend the status of Islam, resulting in the misunderstanding among non-Muslims.

As a result, he said many non-Muslims felt that they should not study Jawi and had rejected Seni Khat in Bahasa Melayu curriculum for Chinese and Tamil primary schools.
