The Cabinet made a decision that a child's religion must follow the common religion of the parents at the time of marriage even if the child’s mother or father later embraced another religion. Jakim on the other hand suggested that a child's religion can be decided by either parent.
I am okay either way as long as the law allows the child to choose his religion when he turns 18 and the law is equal on both sides, be they a conversion into Islam or out of Islam as the Quran says,
WOE UNTO THOSE who give short measure: those who, when they are to receive their due from [other] people, demand that it be given in full, but when they have to measure or weigh whatever they owe to others, give less than what is due! Do they not know that they are bound to be raised from the dead? [and called to account] on an awesome Day (Quran 83: 1-5)
