Syariah Criminal Offences Act 1997 Kesavan - who are you?

1. Three Muslim women were caned after they were found guilty and sentenced under Section 23 (2) of the Federal Territory Syariah Criminal Offences Act 1997 (Illicit Sex).

2. As usual, this kind of unusual event attracted both supporting and opposing views. Unfortunately, even irrelevant Non-Muslims who have no locus standi and have little knowledge about Islam wanted to give their unwelcomed comments.

3. Before Ragunath Kesavan can suggest to the government to abolish whipping, he ought to understand thoroughly about the issue in the context of Islamic Jurisprudence. At least he must first comprehend the explanation given by Datin Dr Paizah Ismail.

4. It’s very naive of him, in this context, to urge the government to comply with international norms and principles on it. What international norms and principles? Who decide? What benchmarks? More importantly, please understand that this is a religious (ISLAMIC) issue.

5. Just to draw Kesavan’s attention. Beef is widely eaten by the people globally. Am I prudent enough to urge the Indians to follow the international norms of eating beef? Cutting and keeping short hair is the international norm for men. Does he dare to ask the Sikh men to cut their hair? Sunday is widely observed as a holiday throughout the world. Does he have the nerve to tell the Jews to change their holiday from Saturday to Sunday?

6. Do you get my point, Kesavan?
