One PAS promise in manifesto guaranteed

MM Online - For GE14, PAS promises harsher Shariah penalties to curb vice industry (extracts):

CYBERJAYA, March 18 — PAS today promised to bring into place legal changes to empower Shariah courts to impose heftier penalties if it wins the 14th general election (GE14). [...]

PAS has been trying to push for heavier Shariah punishments through PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang’s parliamentary motion, where he is proposing a private member’s Bill to increase the Shariah courts’ sentencing limits to 30 years’ jail, RM100,000 fine and 100 lashes.

The current maximum penalties under the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965 are three years’ jail, RM5,000 fine and six lashes.

No Hudud in Sabah but increase Hudud in Malaysia via RUU355, wakakaka, as if Sabah is not part of Malaysia. Never trust a priest, of whatever religion.

Combating vice is only a very small part of what the hudud punishments will be used. It will in general become an intimidating weapon of the ulamak to threaten, frighten and prosecute dissenters.

Recall the sad sorry saga of how the ulamak persecute and hound Nik Raina when she was not even a dissenter. For more, see Islamic scholar: Separating state from religion necessary for Muslims to believe with conviction and honesty.

a classic example of how JAWI a Muslim priesthood relentlessly persecuted an innocent Muslim woman

from FMT (24 June 2015)

Concluding that she was charged simply because she was a Muslim and because JAWI could neither exercise jurisdiction over her employer nor her non-Muslim supervisor, the civil Court of Appeal found that the proceedings against her were “unreasonable”, “irrational” and offended “the principle of fairness and justice.”

Taking the cue from that decision, the Shariah High Court discharged Nik Raina.

One would have thought that the matter would end there, but JAWI was unrelenting. It pursued an appeal to the Shariah Appeals Court against the Shariah High Court’s decision!

It seems that it was only after her counsel Rosli Dahlan threatened contempt proceedings against JAWI that they relented and filed a notice to withdraw the appeal.

Elation and relief which followed, however, were short-lived and quickly replaced by anxiety and despair when the Shariah Court Registry fixed the withdrawal application for hearing on June 23.

To add unnecessary drama, Nik Raina’s lawyer was informed on the morning of the hearing that he would not be permitted to appear on her behalf unless he filed a fresh certificate of legal representation (wakalah). He eventually did, at the eleventh hour!

A teary-eyed Nik Raina lamented the three years of victimization she suffered at the hands of over-zealous officers from the religious department.

“Every time I was asked to sit in the dock, I felt like a common criminal. I felt so sad. I could not understand what wrong I had done. My family also suffered much shame and humiliation,” she sobbed.

She was grateful, though, for the outpouring of support she received.

“I am proud that right thinking Malaysians, Muslims and non-Muslims, rallied behind me,” she said. “Malaysians have not lost their sense of right and wrong. They knew JAWI did me wrong.”

“JAWI’s actions give Islam a bad name not only here but internationally”

Putting unelected unaccountable unanswerable priests in charge of Malaysia will be an unmitigated disaster.


  1. But Don't forget RU355 is a credible threat only because it has the support of the Arsehole Ah Jib Gor

    2. Wakakakaka……

      WHY r u preaching islam while u r subscribing to zombie-ism?

      The Muhammadan Laws u quoted DO NOT apply in ANY of the current radicalised islamic outfits - Taliban ke, boko haram ke, wahhabis Arabs ke, isis ke & what have u!

      Those people whom u have quoted would regret for ever having saying so if they r still alive today!

    3. CK...sai hei talking to that " sly but no knowledge " category creature, wakakaka.
