Appeal to delete ‘Islam’ from IC rejected

PUTRAJAYA: The Court of Appeal dismissed an appeal by a woman who filed an originating summons to delete the word “Islam” from her identity card and claimed she is free to practise the religion of her choice.

The majority decision was read by Justice Datuk Gopal Sri Ram who sat with Datuk Abdul Aziz Mohamad and Datuk Arifin Zakaria.

Justice Abdul Aziz and Justice Arifin ruled that the Director-General of the National Registration Department (NRD) was right in not allowing the application brought by Lina Joy, whose original name was Azlina Jailani.

She wanted to delete the word “Islam” from her identity card on the grounds that the syariah court and other Islamic religious authorities did not confirm her renunciation of Islam.
Justice Datuk Faiza Thambi Chik had held that as Lina was a Malay, she could not renounce Islam.
