Apology and retraction of column entitled ‘Abolish Federal Constitution’s Article 11(4)’ — Malay Mail Online

OCT 7 — On October 2, Malay Mail Online published an opinion piece entitled “Abolish Federal Constitution’s Article 11(4)” written by our columnist and journalist Boo Su-Lyn.

Because of the sensitivities surrounding the subject matter, the editors have now made the decision to withdraw publication of said column and to apologise unreservedly to anyone who may have been offended by it.

The writer wishes to point out that she is aware of the sensitivities in Malaysia regarding the topic of religion. She has no intention of insulting Islam.

Malay Mail Online also has no intention of insulting Islam or any religion, and is withdrawing the said article and apologising in the hopes of avoiding any such perception.
