The Syariah High Court rejected a woman’s request to leave Islam through email.
The birth certificate of a 32-year-old lady indicates that she is Muslim since her father converted to Islam in order to marry her mother.
The woman’s mother took care of her when her parents split up, but the mother didn’t try to persuade her to leave Islam, thus she never did.
Since she was denied the right to choose her religion as a kid, she filed for a change at the Shariah High Court in Kuala Lumpur in August 2018 claiming she was never a Muslim and no longer identifies as one.
The woman also claimed to be a devout Buddhist and Confucianist who had been a Buddhist for a long time and often attended Buddhist celebrations.
She also mentioned that she makes yearly pilgrimages to Buddhist temples for prayers and preparation for rebirth on the path to paradise.
