While I understand the point made by opponents of the decision, that it causes confusion particularly in semi literate village areas where Christian missionaries are active, as far as I am concerned this decision is still nevertheless fine with me.
However, the govt don't think its fine which is why they are sadly appealing. Someone should point out to the Govt that during the period of Jahiliyah in Arabia during the nomadic years predating Islam most Arabs believed "al-Lah" was their high god which was the same as the God worshipped by the Jews and Christians. As a result, Arabs who converted to Christianity also called their God "al-Lah" and made the Hajj alongside Pagans. My point is Christians have been using the word "al-Lah" before Muslims.
