“To say that she is not under the jurisdiction of the Syariah Court - because she no longer professes Islam - is not appropriate… In other words, one cannot embrace or leave a religion according to one’s whims and fancies.” - Chief Justice Tun Ahmad Fairuz Sheikh Abdul Halim

“Illegal and unreasonable… to expect the appellant (Lina) to apply for a certificate of apostasy - when to do so would likely expose her to a range of offences under the Islamic law - is, in my view, unreasonable.” - Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak Datuk Richard Malanjum

“I am disappointed that the Federal Court is not able to vindicate a simple but important fundamental right that exists in all persons; namely, the right to believe in the religion of one’s choice… The Federal Court has not only denied me that right but to all Malaysians who value fundamental freedoms.” - Lina Joy
