Lulu Is Not Comfortable With Anwar Taking The Case To Syariah Court

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim this morning lodged a report at the Federal Territory Religious Department against Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan saying the 23-year-old former aide has falsely accused him of fornication.
The complaint, referred to as qazaf in Islamic law, is to request a probe into ‘false allegations’ pertaining to adultery or sexual misconduct.

Lulu is concerned that this will mark the beginning of syariah law on criminal matters.
As it is, Syariah courts has the final say on what some call doubtful conversions which are brought up after death. They have also tried to intervene in a business entity decision.

You may laugh at the thought of how Saiful is going to produce four witnesses to the allegation, but what Anwar is also doing is opening up this Pandora box for Muslim accussed rapists to lodge qazaf on the Muslim women who lodge reports against them, leaving the Syariah court no choice but to compell the victims to produce 4 upright Muslim men who witness the crime.

Lulu is VERY concerned.

I hope that's Anwar's intention but that's uncertain, for sure. So I feel the same disquiet as Lulu.

The 4 upright Muslim men who witness the rape of a woman would be charged as co-conspirators in Western courts of law for doing dothing to prevent the crime

anon 2:02pm,

First they came for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up,because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up,because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn’t speak up,because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time there was no one left to speak up for me.

Are you a woman ?
Are you a muslim woman ?
If not, you can't understand why all women would be worried, muslim or non muslim.
