Damn... I wish these self-righteous bastards will just give it a rest.
And btw, MCA, Gerakan and MIC... if you want an opportunity to show that you're still relevant to multi-racial, multi-religious Malaysia... here's the perfect opportunity. Don't waste it.
Proposal to prosecute non-Muslims for khalwatFAIR? I doubt Ikim and the Syariah Judiciary Department even know what FAIR means.
By IZATUN SHARI in Star Online
A seminar on Syariah Law review wants non-Muslims found committing khalwat (close proximity) with Muslims to also be held liable.
This was among the proposals made at the two-day seminar organised by the Islamic Institute of Understanding Malaysia (Ikim) and the Syariah Judiciary Department Malaysia.
Syariah Court of Appeal Judge Datuk Mohd Asri Abdullah said the seminar had proposed that non-Muslims committing khalwat with Muslims should also be sentenced accordingly, but in the civil courts.
“We don’t have the jurisdiction to sentence non-Muslims committing khalwat with Muslims,” he told reporters after closing the seminar on behalf of department director-general Datuk Ibrahim Lembut at Ikim here today.
“The Muslims can be sentenced in Syariah courts, and the non-Muslim partners can probably be sentenced in the civil courts, to be fair to both parties.”
Do they firstly agree that khalwat is merely a sin according to the religion of Islam, and not a crime under Malaysian law? If they do, then how can a non-Muslim be rightfully punished for what is merely an Islamic sin?
How dare they suggest any attempt to pass judgement on and punish non-Muslims using the self-imposed religious yardstick of a religion they do not profess and want absolutely nothing to do with?
Those douche bags always quote "there is no compulsion in Islam". But they keep attempting to impose so much compulsion outside Islam, on non-Muslims. And they still wonder why non-Muslims are so sick of them.
I put it to IKIM and the Syariah Judiciary Dept that it is infinitely fairer and much more expedient - to simply make it a religious law that Muslims must run far, far away and hide from non-Muslims whenever one approaches.
