Federation reiterates stand against Hudud

MIRI: The Federation of Chinese Associations Sarawak has reiterated its objection against the implementation of Hudud law, stating that the Islamic law would affect not only the Chinese community but also other non-Muslims.

Making the statement at the Federation of Miri Division Chinese Associations annual general meeting here yesterday, the Federation of Chinese Associations Sarawak president Wong Aik Luong said the Kelantan State Assemblys move to pass the bill clearly showed that the Kelantan government was oblivious of the rights of non-Muslims.

What we are concerned most is that when a state begins to implement the law, the others might follow. It would certainly be unfair for the non-Muslim Malaysians, he said.

Wong said once the law became reality, the people were the ones to bear the consequences.

The non-Muslims will be forced to abide by the law and, worst, we might not be able to practise freely our religion and culture, he said.

The general meeting, which was hosted by the Federation of Miri Division Chinese Associations president Hii Teck Yun, was attended by hundreds of members.
