God or Allah

This is with reference to a letter from Brother Mustafa on the “Malaysian Court Verdict” in the November 2013 issue of Islamic Voice. I differ with him on the grounds that “Allah” can never be a simply equivalent word for “the God” as Brother Mustafa opines, because God can become plural if we add ‘s’ and a feminine if we add ‘ess.’ There are no such attributes associated with “Allah.” Using capital “G” does not really help. Hence “Allah” is certainly an unique word which Muslims should not compromise on.
