Fairer for Muslims to just run away & hide from non-Muslims

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 khalwat
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.”
FAIR? I doubt Ikim and the Syariah Judiciary Department even know what FAIR means.

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.

(STAR) PETALING JAYA: It is unconstitutional to punish non-Muslims for committing khalwat (close proximity) as there is no provision in law for it, according to the Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism, and Taoism.

Its president Datuk A. Vaithilingam said Article 121(A) of the Constitution allowed for separation between the Civil and Syariah courts.

“Khalwat is not recognised (as an offence) under civil law. It is not wrong for non-Muslims. Syariah law is only applicable to Muslims,” he said Thursday.

He was commenting on a proposal made during a seminar on Syariah Law review for non-Muslims who commit khalwat with Muslims to also be held liable.

Syariah Court of Appeal Judge Datuk Mohd Asri Abdullah said the seminar had proposed that non-Muslims committing khalwat with Muslims be likewise sentenced but in the civil courts.

Vaithilingam also said this was tantamount to depriving non-Muslims of their rights.

Federation of Taoist Associations Malaysia president Tan Bon Sin said in a statement it vehemently objected to the proposal, as it was an affront to the Taoist community’s way of life.

“It is an implied way of imposing Syariah law on the non-Muslim communities in Malaysia,” he said.

“Holding hands with, or showing love for, the opposite sex in public is not, and cannot, be a crime. It is a civilised way of telling your loved ones that you care.


Good response.

And did Federation of Taoist Associations Malaysia president Tan Bon Sin, just indirectly say that considering khalwat a crime is "uncivilised"?

Way to go, Mr Tan :)

Either Ikim or The Star needs to be thoroughly bitch-slapped. I wonder if the Syariah Judiciary Dept will back-pedal as well.

Ikim: No such khalwat proposal
Apr 4, 08 2:02pm

The Institute of Islamic Understanding (Ikim) says no proposal to prosecute non-muslims for khalwat was made in its seminar which was held to review existing syariah laws.

It said that Tuesday's report in the Star headlined "Proposal to prosecute non-muslims for khalwat" as entirely erroneous. MORE on Malaysiakini

WTF, no such proposal?

Go and sue the Star and we'll believe that reversal!

The zealots are now hijacking the laws and our Constitution.
