Even so-called "moderate" muslim states punish women in unreasonable ways, and deny women rights. It's completely ridiculous.
international laws should superceed
all these primitive hatefull laws
Common sense should supersede barbaric laws like this. They flog women for wearing pants for gods sake...
with man mad gods and lies.
make women rule
ada diantaranya yg menuduh undang2 Islam berat sebelah dan mendiskriminasi wanita.
baru2 ini, 3pesalah syariah disebat dihadapan pegawai penjara ats kesalahan zina.
apa yg menarik, sebatan yg dilakukan langsung tidak spertimana yg digambarkn oleh kita semua.
dlm Islam, kita dididik dan bukannya menghukum.
pesalah terbabit diberikn peluang utk melakukan solat taubat dan berdoa sebelum disebat.
ironinya, sebatan yg diterima tidak menyakitkn sebaliknya sekadar utk mengajar
namun masih byk pihak terutama yg Islam tetapi bertindak ats kapasiti hak asasi manusia yg mendakwa hukuman ini tidak adil
pd sy, sy stuju dgn beberapa pdpt bhw isu ini adalah peluang kpd kita utk berdakwah kpd non muslim ttg kelembutan Islam
sesungguhnya hukum sivil lebih kejam dan jahil dr apa yg telah Islam gariskn
dan semoga langkah pertama ini merupakan permulaan yg baik utk pelaksanaan hukum Islam sbnr sterusnya.
A Prison Department official confirmed the women's comments, made at a news conference at the women's prison outside Kuala Lumpur to local, government-linked media under the watch of authorities.
He said they were reluctant to speak to other media.
It could not be confirmed whether they were speaking voluntarily.
A request with the department for interviews is pending.
Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin defended the caning this morning, saying it was 'far lighter' than what some people might imagine.
'The punishment is legitimate and in accordance with the law,' Muhyiddin said.
Human rights groups have slammed the caning, saying it is a cruel and degrading punishment and discriminates against Muslim women because Malaysian civil law - which applies to non-Muslims - bans the caning of women.
The women, who were fully clothed and sitting on a stool, received between four and six strokes with a thin rattan stick on the back, lasting a few minutes.
Another woman, Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno, is still waiting to be caned for drinking beer in public.
Her case received international attention last year when she became the first woman slated to receive a caning penalty.
But the punishment was deferred indefinitely amid a public outcry.
Caning of men for such offenses as rape, drug smuggling and staying illegally in the country is common.
It is administered with a thick rattan stick on bare buttocks, causing severe pain and leaving scars.
Malaysia has a two-tier justice system.
Shariah courts deal with personal matters for Muslims, who account for about two-thirds of the country's 28 million people, while non-Muslims - many of whom are ethnic Chinese and Indians - go to civil courts.
