Federal Court denies The Herald leave to appeal ban on use of 'Allah'

Catholic weekly, The Herald, has failed to get leave from the Federal Court to challenge the Home Ministry over the ban on the use of the word “Allah”.

Chief Justice Ariffin Zakaria, who chaired a seven-man panel on Monday, held this in a majority decision.

This is the first time that such a large panel has sat to hear and determine the application for leave.
