In modern, moderate Malaysia, it appears to be illegal to express disapproval of jihad terror or Islamic supremacism. It is unlikely that a similar public expression of dislike for Christianity or some other religion would have resulted in arrest. It is only Islamic supremacists whose faith is so brittle and insecure that they have to quash all reasoned criticism as well as ridicule of their faith by the force of law.
This is the kind of law, moreover, that the purveyors of the “Islamophobia” myth are trying to bring to the West. By smearing all legitimate opposition to jihad terror and Islamic supremacism as “bigotry” and “hatred,” they are trying to fasten upon that opposition a stigma that will pave the way for the criminalizing of criticism of Islam in general. The objective of that is in the first place to impose Sharia blasphemy laws forbidding such criticism upon the free societies of the West, and also to clear away all obstacles to the advance of jihad, by making it impossible for anyone to say a word against it.
“Teenager detained for insulting Islam on Facebook,” by Shaun Ho for The Star, November 8 (thanks to Bren):
KUALA LUMPUR: A school dropout from Malacca who made remarks insulting Islam on Facebook was arrested by police on Thursday.
Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Zainuddin Ahmad said the 17-year-old was picked up by police in Bandar Hilir, Malacca at 3pm and was later handed over to officers from the Dang Wangi police district headquarters here.
“He is being investigated under Section 4 (1)(b) of the Sedition Act 1948,” ACP Zainuddin told reporters late Thursday.
It is believed he was released on police bail at midnight.
According to ACP Zainuddin, the suspect, who lives in Petaling Jaya, had dropped out of school two years ago and was fond of playing computer games.
Police were also trying to locate another person who had replied to the teenager’s posting.
