The Struggle for the Word ALLAH

This is an interesting phenomenon in Malaysia where the statist-formalist Muslims, the Christians and the Sikhs are struggling for the use of the word ALLAH. The conservative Muslims believe that the term is exclusively theirs as they read it only in the Qur'an without deep understanding about its terminological history. The Christians and the Sikhs have also used the term in their scriptures and ordinary usage.
