KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 20 — Minister Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom said today the federal government is drawing up a list of amendments to the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act despite a similar proposal from PAS listed for debate in Parliament.
The minister in the Prime Minister’s Department in charge of Islamic affairs said the government is working on its own revisions as the legislation governing Muslims — also known as Act 355 — had not been amended for a “long time”.
“If this amendment is passed by Parliament, the government would like to propose that Shariah offenders be punished with community service as well,” Jamil Khir said in a written parliamentary reply to DAP’s Seputeh MP Teresa Kok.
Jamil Khir Baharom is the boss of moronic Jakim. However if, as he has just assured us, the government will propose that syariah offenders be punished with community service instead of physical punishments for such minor issues, say wakakaka, as drinking haram stuff (root beer, tapai juice, etc, wakakaka), truant-ing puasa and eating Pretzel hot dogs, wakakaka, or overexposing hair when strong winds blow off sweeties' hijabs ...
... and not with increased flogging like what the Saudis did to the Qatif girl (a Shia sweetheart raped by 6 Sunni bastards), amputation of limbs or some draconian punishments as the PAS ulamas want it (those PAS ulamas love to punish punish punish kau kau kau), then that will be supportable.
rape victim flogged - she was a Shia and her rapists 6 Sunni Saudi animals
she was trialled by Sunnis
By the way, I hope we also do away with capital punishments as we should NOT be barbaric like Americans, Chinese (in China, wakakaka) Sings, Indons (strangely more draconian under Jokowi but no execution during Suharto's days), Iranians, Pakis, Saudis etc who sanctify state organized cold-blooded murders.
Be more like Ozzies, Kiwis, Hongkies, East Timorese, Brits, West Europeans, etc.
