[Politics] Ow ow brainhurt

Choice quotes from Malaysiakini today:

Spokesperson for the group Fathul Bari Mat Jahaya said last night’s meeting with Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin was fruitful, where they decided to propose the concept of ‘Islam for All’ as the first step… “We wanted to portray that Islam is not only for Muslims or a certain race,” he said.

From UMNO Newbies moot “Islam for all” concept

Um… isn’t Islam a religion? And therefore it *should* be for those who are Muslims alone?

Nazri explained that the discrepancy arose because one of his officers sent the written answer to Parliament without checking it with him. This, he added, went against his standard practice of clearing all answers to be issued out of his office.

From Nazri apologises for Parliament blunder.

Wait, so if I am reading this right, did Nazri let someone else SIGN a written answer in his name?
