Chief Syariah Judge concedes that Syariah Court has no power over Non-Muslims

Have you read this post?

The Scope of Syariah on Non-Muslims?

I argued that non-Muslims cannot be subject to the Syariah court, as it is illogical for a person to submit himself to a court drawing its power from a religion he does not profess.

Apparently, the Chief Syariah Judge agrees. Have a look at Today (18 Jan 2007) newspaper article below:

That bit about compromise and voluntary cooperation... here's an idea for ya:

Why don't the Syariah court be compromising and voluntarily cooperate with the rest of Malaysia... by staying the hell out of the affairs of non-Muslims.
