The Selangor Islamic Religious Department/Selangor Council of Islamic Religion (JAIS/MAIS) have issued fatwas that Qadiani teaching is not Islamic and has practically categorized Qadianis/Ahmadi as “apostates.” Additionally, a notice issued on April 24, 2009 by MAIS, the highest religious authority in the State of Selangor second only to the Sultan, prohibits Ahmadi Muslims from praying in and otherwise peacefully utilizing their Baitussalam Center (House of Peace), which is located at 11-A, Jalan Nakhoda Kanan, Kampong Nakhoda, 68100 Batu Caves, Selangor.
