No Joy for Lina Joy

No joy for Lina Joy. She loses appeal today and she will stays as Muslim on her IC.

"Lina, 42, was born Azlina Jailani to Malay parents. She was brought up as a Muslim but at the age of 26 decided to become a Christian. In 1999, she managed to change the name in her identity card to Lina Joy but her religion remained as Islam.

On April 23, 2001, the High Court refused to decide on her application to renounce Islam as her religion on the grounds that the issue should be decided by the Syariah Court.

It also dismissed her application for an order to direct the department to drop the word “Islam” from her identity card. " - The Star

Read more about the decision about the rejection of her appeal here.

I wouldn't want to comment much about this because of its sensitivity here in Malaysia. A person's freedom and believes is his/her rights, if a person is without rights where is democracy?
