High Court Ruling Against Sis Is A Cause For Concern




The recent decision of the High Court in Kuala Lumpur in dismissing the judicial review application of Sisters in Islam (SIS) against a fatwa by Selangor religious authorities declaring it as ‘deviant’ is disturbing
SIS has been battling in court for five years to challenge the constitutionality and legality of how this fatwa was made
According to reports, the High Court judge ruled that the civil courts have no jurisdiction on this type of case and that any further remedy musts go through the Syariah court
Further, it is reported that the High Court judge ruled that the fatwa was applicable to SIS although it is a company (companies and directors are usually considered separate legal entities) given that the directing minds are Muslims and their activities touch on Islamic law

This is a major decision which carries implications fundamental to our basic governance. Some of these have been captured in the dissenting legal opinions which have been put forward
These include that judicial powers are vested exclusively in the civil courts and their jurisdiction and powers are not confined to federal laws
Furthermore, the powers of judicial review and constitutional interpretation are fundamental components of the civil courts’ judicial power under Article 121(1) and are not negated when the subject matter involves Islamic issues
There is the argument that Syariah courts have no jurisdiction over companies and that the corporate veil can only be lifted in instances of fraud - which is not justified in this case
There is also the view that the High Court ruling has contravened the constitutional right to freedom of religion, and a fatwa cannot override an act of Parliament or the Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land
In a multi-ethnic multi-religious country such as ours, it is important that decisions about our constitutional freedoms are continually monitored and, if necessary, challenged. This ruling is a case in point
This is issued by the Aliran Executive Committee. - Mkini
