Reza Aslan: Tiada Tuhan Melainkan “Allah.”

Reza Aslan, Award winning author, scholar, and theologian

Reza Aslan: Tiada Tuhan Melainkan “Allah.”

"That you can control people's ideas, their behaviour, their faith and their minds simply by trying to control the words that they use, is absurd. It is an embarrassment to a modern, constitutional, democratic and deeply Muslim state like Malaysia."

The controversy surrounding the word “Allah” and it’s usage continues to afflict both our public and private discourse. As the debate reached a fever pitch, The Evening Edition spoke to The New York Times bestselling author and acclaimed academic Reza Aslan in an attempt to provide some historical and theological context on the matter.
