Kuala Lumpur, 1 Sept. (AKI) – From mobile phone text messages to blogs and e-mails: Muslims and non-Muslims in Malaysia have been sharing their anger and concerns over how the country’s judiciary will rule on the legality of a Muslim woman’s conversion to Christianity. Lina Joy, 42, who was born as Azalina Jailani, is awaiting the Federal Court’s decision on her appeal to have her conversion officially recognised. Reports say that Joy is in currently in hiding after death threats from Islamic extremists, who accuse her of being an apostate.
