Good step by HEP @ibusolih! Much work to ensure women get justice in court, informing women of their rights, proposing reforms pertaining to anti-domestic violence, family law & engaging in intellectual discourse on Islam & women’s rights! @Uthema_MV @SistersinIslam @ShujuneM https://t.co/IxL4s62JYL

@SistersinIslam "While the fatwa continues to hang over our heads, @SistersinIslam vows to continue championing the rights of women in #Malaysia. After 62 years of independence, Malaysian women deserve better than this."

Court ruling in @SistersinIslam case means Shariah law applicable to all companies with Muslim directors, @netraKL warns https://t.co/hk9lWwkRYF

"This is backdoor Shariah-sation of our entire law, our entire Constitution, is what I understand it to be."

Court’s fatwa challenge refusal dark moment for Malaysia, women’s rights, @SistersinIslam says https://t.co/ItfPUerS8o

"Whatever is said about SIS, the raison d’être is, at the end of the day, we are here for Muslim women and women rights."

@SistersinIslam The upholding of the fatwa suggests that helping women to get justice in court, informing women of their rights, proposing reforms pertaining to Islamic family law, protecting children & engaging in intellectual discourse on Islam & women’s rights all constitute to being deviant.

@SistersinIslam Despite the fatwa, SIS remains instrumental in informing laws and conducting programmes that continue to improve the lives of millions of women in #Malaysia.

@SistersinIslam "The judgment represents a dark day not only for SIS, but also for Muslim women in Malaysia. For over three decades, SIS has been carrying the voices of women from the ground to decision-makers and policymakers.
