I suppose the Deputy Prime Minister (DPM) of Malaysia, who is of course a Muslim — and must always be so — thinks that he is reassuring Malaysia’s perennially nervous (and oppressed) ‘religious minorities’ with his latest remarks about Malaysia not yet being ‘ready’ for ‘hudud’, which can be defined as the most vicious aspects of Shariah — the Islamic laws that deal with theft, fornication, alcohol and apostasy. Of course the implementation of hudud laws in Malaysia is but a matter of time. In fact, much of Shariah is already on the books and actively enforced in this country. Another take on this story: “DPM: [Malaysia] not ready for hudud laws”, The Star, 22 Sept 2011:
PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia is not ready for the implementation of hudud law, says Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
The Deputy Prime Minister said as a multi-racial and multi-religious country, Malaysia was not ready to introduce hudud laws as brought up by PAS leaders.
“Our stand is that in Malaysia, we cannot
implement it in the present situation. I do not think in the present condition, it is suitable for implementation. We did not question the need to implement hudud law,” he told a news conference after chairing a Cabinet Committee on Supply and Prices meeting here Thursday.
Muhyiddin said hudud laws could only be implemented when the situation was really conducive.
In other words, once the numbers of non Muslims in Malaysia are reduced to insignificance via migration and conversion, then full-blown implementation of hudud laws will eventually become politically feasible.
He said explanation and understanding of these [hudud] laws needed to be extended to cover all the people in the country so that they truly understood them.
Muslims, be prepared to utter ever more lies to spread your belief system. With the march of Islam comes disinformation and lies, by the truck load.
“As a Muslim, I cannot reject hudud law. This is a fact from the Islamic law aspect but its implementation has become a subject of debate today. If Nik Aziz (Kelantan Mentri Besar) said it would be implemented in Kelantan, it is his wish,” he added.
Under hudud laws, thieves hands are chopped off, adulterers stoned to death and murderers executed. – Bernama
