Muslims don't think we worship the same God....

There has been a curious, long-running case in Malaysia over the use of the term 'Allah'.

The Herald, a weekly newsletter put out by the Catholic Church there has been fighting a ban on the use of the word 'Allah' to denote God by non-Muslims, arguing that the word pre-dates Islam.

The Government on the other hand have insisted that its use be restricted to references to the Muslim God, and argues that its use by Christians would be confusing.

The ban has now been upheld, reports Al Jazeera.
