'Moderate' Country Rules Calling God "Allah" Illegal for Christians

And by 'public disorder' the court means "some Muslims might take offense and kill you". Which is really rather nice of the court, thinking about the safety of Christians and what not. Of course, this is a reminder that even in Muslim countries Islamophobia runs rampant. The biggest culprits being Muslims themselves.

The Muslim court itself is Islamophobic. What else would you call a court that held Muslims to a lower standard than everybody else?

A Malaysian court has ruled that non-Muslims cannot use the word Allah to refer to God, even in their own faiths, overturning a 2009 lower court ruling.

The appeals court said the term Allah must be exclusive to Islam or it could cause public disorder....

The 2009 ruling sparked tensions, with churches and mosques attacked....

Dozens of churches and a few Muslim prayer halls were attacked and burned in the wake of the 2009 ruling, highlighting the intensity of feeling about issues of ethnicity and faith in Malaysia.

When will the Islamophobia in Malaysia end!
