SISTERS & JAKIM - Why not have a thrash out session?

The High Court has lifted the ban by the Home Ministry on SISTERS’ book, “Muslim Women and the Challenge of Islamic Extremism” read here.

Now, JAKIM is worried that Muslims will ‘terpesong’ if they read such a book read here.

May I suggest having a session in the spirit of enquiry a thrash out session where both sides illustrate their points and ideas for the public in general and Muslim especially to decide for themselves? I offer to moderate (and those who have seen me moderating, I am strict, to the point and fair :) )

To make it kosher, all arguments must first and foremost be based on the Quran, since the Quran did say,

“Say: "What thing is most Weighty in evidence?" Say: "(Allah) is witness between me and you; This Qur'an hath been revealed to me by inspiration, that I may warn you and all whom it reaches. …..." (Quran 6:19).

"And we sent down the Book to thee for the express purpose, that thou should make clear to them those things in which they differ, that it should be a guide and a mercy to those who believe." (Quran 16:64)

Will JAKIM and SISTERS agree?

Here's a solution. Government does not ban the book but Jakim can get the fatwa council to come out with a fatwa on the book. Maybe the fatwa can read "it is haram for Muslims to read the book." Just like their fatwa on cigarettes smoking.
