Singapore Straits Times questions the enforcement of ‘‘ or the Islamic criminal law in Johor state.
1. Salim Osman recalled the news dated back June 20th within the environment of the Johor state legislature. Ayub Rahmat, the Johor state assemblyman
recommended the enforcement of hudud law in Johor state.
2. S.O. clearly obtained the information from Malaysian Insider printed on 2nd July, reported by Shazwan Mustafa Kamal.
3. “Umno’s Kemelah state assemblyman Ayub Rahmat was quoted by online news portal Malaysiakini as saying he wished to see Johor to become the first state to implement “true hudud law”, which he claimed would differ from PAS’s version.” – The Malaysian Insider.
4. According to S.O., Ayub Rahmat’s suggestion had received overwhelming support from UMNO officials, ranging from a deputy minister with Islamic training to the Umno women’s wing. So far S.O. is anticipating responses from Umno’s top leaders.
It is illogic to accept the idea of Kemelah’s state assemblyman’s wishful thinking.
