PRESS STATEMENT
ALLIED COORDINATING COMMITTEE OF ISLAMIC NGOS IN MALAYSIA (ACCIN)

14 February 2015 / 24 Rabiulakhir 1436H

ACCIN, acting as the umbrella organization for the alliance of Islamic NGOs in Malaysia fully supports the statement made by the Islamic Information & Service Foundation (IIS) pertaining to the issue of sharing the translated version of Quran to the non-Muslim.

The main objective of “One Soul One Quran” project as it has been well-explained is to minimize misconception towards Islam; especially among the non-Muslims of which this misconception usually leads to Islamophobia. As an Islamic NGO, it is part of our responsibility to spread and convey the true message of Islam, namely the Al-Quran. Al-Quran was not meant for the Muslim only, but for the whole human race.  Most importantly, it is not part of Islam to force any human being to be a Muslim but merely spreading the merciful message of Islam. This is well-explained in the Quran “There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion…”(Al-Baqarah; 256).

ACCIN highly hopes Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism (MCCBCHST) to use the Jawatankuasa Mempromosikan Persefahaman dan Keharmonian di Antara Penganut Agama (JKMPKA) to further discuss and express any dissatisfaction towards issues as such. It would have been more advisable to use the platform provided by JKMPKA, through the use of a round table consultation among the committee than disregarding other members in the committee when they decided to meet with the media on their own.This hinders the effort in promoting harmony and unity in Malaysia.

KENYATAAN MEDIA
ALLIED COORDINATING COMMITTEE OF ISLAMIC NGOS IN MALAYSIA (ACCIN)

14 Februari 2015 bersamaan 24 Rabiulakhir 1436H

ACCIN sebagai sebuah badan induk gabungan pertubuhan-pertubuhan Islam bukan kerajaan di Malaysia menyokong penuh kenyataan yang dibuat oleh Islamic Information & Service Foundation (IIS) berhubung dengan isu penyebaran al-Quran kepada bukan Muslim.

Objektif utama projek “One Soul One Quran” sepertimana yang telah dijelaskan ialah untuk meminimakan salah faham terhadap Islam khususnya di kalangan bukan Islam sehingga menimbulkan “Islamphobia”. Sebagai NGO Islam, adalah menjadi tanggungjawab bersama ACCIN untuk menyampaikan kefahaman yang tepat tentang Al-Quran yang ditujukan bukan hanya kepada umat Islam tetapi kepada manusia seluruhnya. Namun Islam tidak memaksa seseorang manusia tersebut untuk menganut agama Islam sepertimana yang jelas termaktub di dalam al-Quran: “ Tiada paksaan dalam (menganut) agama (Islam) “ (Al-Baqarah; 256).

ACCIN berharap Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism (MCCBCHST) menggunakan saluran Jawatankuasa Mempromosikan Persefahaman dan Keharmonian di Antara Penganut Agama (JKMPKA) untuk berbincang dan mengemukakan sebarang ketidakpuasan hati terhadap isu-isu seperti di atas.
