EVEN though the Home Ministry recently approved the publication permit for the Herald – the Catholic Weekly, only publication in English, Tamil, and Chinese is allowed. Publication of the weekly's Malay language version has been held back, pending a court decision on the use of the word "Allah".
I personally find the position taken by the Home Ministry untenable and see no reason why the Malay language version of the Herald should be put on hold.
