Allah is allowed again in Christian publications in Malaysia

Associated Press reports that the Malaysian government has softened an earlier ban on the use of the word "Allah" by Christian publications to refer to God and is allowing them to use it as long as they specify the material is not for Muslims. The government had earlier argued that the use of Allah in Christian texts might confuse Muslims, who might think Allah refers to their God.

Poor Muslims in Malaysia. I never realized they are so vulnerable and ignorant. But they have, alhamdulillah, a government that cares for them.
Thus far I never heard that Muslims believe that Christians have 'another God' than Islam. Malaysia seems to have another view.
