While Malaysia has backed down from its requirement that the Herald, in its Malay edition refrain from use of the word Allah to refer to any god but the Muslim god, on the ground that Muslims might get confused, Christians may now only use the word Allah if they clearly state that the material is for use by Christians.
The word Allah predates Islam and has a history of hundreds of years of use in Malaysia to mean God, generally. Its use should not be restricted and Christians should not be required to issue disclaimers about use of the word.
If Muslims are that easily confused, it’s no wonder that people have to be forced to remain Muslims; they might easily go to the market and return home as adherents to another faith. To me, requiring a disclaimer reinforces possible confusion.
What are Muslims afraid of? Truth?
