Abstract

Liberal Islam is presently considered a threat to the direction of Muslim thought, particularly in Malaysia. Various approaches and responses have been submitted by various parties, whether government or nongovernment organizations (NGOs). This article will discuss the approaches taken by government agencies and NGOs in Malaysia on this issue. Since its inception, the group of Liberal Islam has conducted many regular activities concerning public education. Nevertheless, there are activities and programs as responses to Liberal Islam include talk shows, publication of books and booklets, conferences and seminars. Initial findings of this article concludes that the threat of Liberal Islam in Malaysia is difficult to spread widely because it is being monitored directly and indirectly by government institutions and non- government organizations, those in academia and the community.
