Public Lecture on 'The Constitution At A Crossroad'


'The Constitution At A Crossroad' by Emeritus Prof Datuk Dr Shad Saleem Faruqi


The original Constitution of 1957 and 1963 was one of moderation, compassion and compromise but it is being undermined by surreptitious amendments from politicalisation of institutions and disregard for the spirit of the law.

Emeritus Prof Datuk Dr Shad Saleem Faruqi, Senior Professor of Law and Legal Advisor at Universiti Teknologi MARA expressed concern on this issue and its "silent re-writing" of the Constitution that posses challenges to the Malaysian concept of "unity in diversity".
