As the international mainstream media indulges in a frenetic orgy of messenger-shooting following the horrific attacks by a depraved psychopath in Norway last week, the repressive, mediaeval cult of Islam keeps on trucking:
Two teenage Muslim girls were arrested by state Islamic officials for hugging and kissing each other publicly in Tawau.
The girls aged 16 and 17 were detained along Jalan Pesisiran during an integrated operation by the Sabah Islamic Religious Affairs Department together with the Tawau Municipal Council on Tuesday.
The department’s officer Abdul Imam Basiron said the two girls faced charges under Section 83 of the Syariah Criminal Offences Enactment 1995 that carries a maximum fine of RM1,000 (S$408.6) or jail of up to six months or both upon conviction.
Abdul Imam said during the operation they also detained three Muslim men aged between 20 and 60 for gambling.
They were caught buying 4D tickets at three premises.
During the operation, they also acted against two restaurants for displaying copies of the halal logo from other establishments.
He said restaurants were allowed to sell food to Muslims but they could not consume it within the premises during fasting hours.
He said the department would be conducting checks on Muslims who were not fasting during Ramadan.
Those caught could be charged under Section 58 of the enactment that carries a maximum fine of RM500 or up to six months’ jail or both upon conviction.
“an integrated operation by the Sabah Islamic Religious Affairs Department together with the Tawau Municipal Council”
Think about that for a moment.
This isn’t (despite what the lamestream media would be likely to claim if they ever stopped bashing the critics of Islam long enough to bother to cover such news) merely some over-zealous ‘misunderstanders of Islam’ at work. This is a fairly mild example of everyday reality for women and girls in Islamic countries.
Malaysia, often cited as the paradigm of a ‘progressive, moderate’ Islamic state, considers even innocuous affection between children to be against the doctrine of Islam.
Yet where is the supposedly compassionate voice of liberalism when it comes to speaking out against the plight of Muslim women and girls? Anyone?
