According to the Director of Jakim, Datuk Othman Mustapha, actions can be taken by the Islamic religious authorities for those who did not follow this rule. He also stated clearly once again that no Muslim man can marry a Non Muslim woman and no Muslim woman can marry a Non Muslim man.

Based on a research done by University Malaya, the marriage between a Non Muslim with a Muslim has been increasing and at the same time the Non Muslims are not converting from their religion. The Associate of Akidah and Islamic Department, Prof Dr Khadijah Hambali, told the religious authorities (Jakim) to carry out this specific measure to curb this phenomenon.
