Recent years have been dominated by the efforts of the politically powerful Malays to extend their influence over the non-Malay half of the population in educational, economic and religious life, enriching and empowering themselves, while many normal Malays are left behind. The ruling party has recently lost its majority to a broad coalition of Chinese, liberal and Islamist parties. Political Islam, both in the ruling party as well Islamist opposition groups, threatens to further polarize the country on both religious and ethnic lines.
Sunni Islam is the official religion. Despite constitutional freedoms, discriminatory legislation and actions against minorities seem to be creeping in. Shariah law, applicable for Muslims only, actually supersedes constitutional law on many issues, a significant issue in a country with a strong and agitating Islamist movement. Proselytizing Muslims is illegal, but considerable effort and lawmaking is exercised to induce tribal peoples and other minorities to become Muslim. Punishment includes a prison sentence and caning.
Religious freedoms for all faiths are constitutionally guaranteed despite changes that threaten this.
- Pray that Christians will stand firm in their faith, despite opposition
- Pray that Malaysian Christians will be free to practice their faith in Jesus Christ.
- Pray that all Christians in Malaysia will be able to freely access the Bible.
