Malaysia's highest court has upheld a government ban against a Roman Catholic newspaper using the world "Allah" to refer to God.
马来西亚最高法院支持政府禁止一家罗马天主教会的报纸用“安拉“指称上帝。

The Federal Court ruled in a four-to-three decision Monday that the church's Malay-language newspaper, The Herald, had no grounds to appeal a lower court decision last year that Allah should be reserved exclusively for Muslims, because if other religions use the word, it could be confusing and lead Muslims to convert.
马来西亚联邦法院星期一以四比三的表决结果判定,这家教会的马来语报纸“前驱报“没有理由对去年一家下级法院的判决提出上诉。那家法院判定,只有穆斯林可以使用“安拉“这一指称,根据是如果其他宗教也用“安拉“,就可能导致混乱,致使穆斯林转信其他宗教。

Such conversion is illegal in Malaysia where more than 60 percent of the population of 30 million are Muslim - the country's official religion. Just over 9 percent are Christian.
在马来西亚,穆斯林转信其他宗教属于非法。马来西亚人口为3千万,其中穆斯林超过60%。伊斯兰教是马来西亚的国教。在马来西亚,基督教徒只占人口的9%。(voanews)
