3 Women Caned For Syariah Offences In Malaysia. Oh How Proud We Are!!
According to The Star -- Three Muslim women became the first in the country to be caned for committing various syariah offences.
Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said the sentence was carried out on Feb 9 at 10am.
Two of the women were given six strokes of the rotan while the third was whipped four times.
One of them was released on Feb 14 after spending a month in prison, Hishammuddin said.
He added one woman would be released over the next few days while the third would be released in June.
All three were found guilty for committing illicit sex.
Hishamuddin must be deliriously happy, now that he has burnished his Islamic credentials for all to view at home and abroad. A real caning bradder and three females at that! Such good news must go down well in brotherly Afghanistan and Pakistan. Not to forget our Muslim compatriots in Sudan and other such nations which are trying their level best to emulate the golden age of Islam of yore.
Congratulations Umno, congratulations Malaysia, for you have finally achieved the recognition which you have yearned all this while from your Islamic brothers and in the process created a record of sorts -- dishing out syariah prescribed caning of women in a constitutionally secular country.
