SIS allowed to continue judicial review against ‘deviant’ fatwa

SHARE

PUTRAJAYA, March 2 — The Court of Appeal reversed today a lower court’s ruling that had dismissed Sisters in Islam’s (SIS) judicial review application against a fatwa that labelled the women’s group as deviant.

The case will now be remitted to the Kuala Lumpur High Court in front of another judge, to be mentioned at March 9.

“We unanimously disagree with the High Court ruling. We allow the appeal,” Justice Datuk Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat told the court here.
