Matters of opinion that enables me to understand or make some sense of my country- Malaysia

I am curious as to how come just the selangor sultan and not the agung made a decree/statement on the Allah issue. . Is it his personal stand and felt he needed to air his view or He was “requested” to make a it. ? .indirectly representing the royalty..afterall his voice represents just Selangor yet if Agung had done so, it will have been representative of the federation states.
.

And Royalty above politics,? although it can be appreciated that they being heads of Islamic affairs are obligated to air their views, yet it is extremely for the Sultan  to be seen as apolitical if they get involved or allow themselves to be dragged into this Allah issue.

It is as political as it can get…

State rulers have no right to dictate religion to non-Muslims, says constitutional expert.

State rulers in Malaysia have no power to suspend or deny the rights of non-Muslims to refer to God as Allah or their rights to religious freedom, which are guaranteed under the Federal Constitution, says constitutional law expert Dr Abdul Aziz Bari.

He said the laws are clear about the authority of the state rulers, just days after Selangor’s Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah reminded non-Muslims in the state not to refer to God as Allah, which was affirmed a month ago by an appeal court ruling.
“The powers of all the rulers must be seen within the context of the Federal Constitution. The authority of the rulers as heads of religion only applies to Muslims within their respective states,” Abdul Aziz told The Malaysian Insider.

The statement by Selangor Royal Council secretary Hanafisah Jais yesterday that the use of the word Allah in the Bible and in the Bahasa Malaysia edition of the Catholic Herald be stopped immediately needs urgent clarification as it raises concern over the constitutional guarantee of freedom of religion.
