Constitutional Law Lecture Series – Third Lecture: “Freedom of Religion: Constitutional & International Perspectives”
April 20, 2017 @ 17:30 - 19:30Free
Taken from Facebook
Article 11 of the Federal Constitution guarantees the right of every person to profess and practise his or her religion. This provision brings with it a plethora of issues which leads to heated debate among Malaysians, particularly where an issue concerns both Muslims and non-Muslims. For example, Muslim apostasy and the unilateral custody and conversion of minor children to Islam.
How do we approach these contestations within the spirit of the Federal Constitution? How do other jurisdictions guarantee their citizen’s exercise of freedom of religion, and is their example relevant to us?
To find out more, attend the 3rd lecture in the Constitutional Law Lecture Series.
