It may be a harsh sentence, says Mahathir

PETALING JAYA: Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has expressed concern that the caning sentence ordered on part-time model Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno might be too harsh.

Among the questions he posed in his blog were whether the punishment might not have been appropriate given the differences of opinion stemming from the issue.

Is not Islam merciful to first-time offenders? Dr Mahathir asked, adding that fairness and consideration were the main tenets in Islam.

We will be celebrating our independence this year by flogging a Muslim woman for drinking beer under Syariah law, he said.( edit: he has a point there…)

Although the story has gone across the globe, Muslims should not worry about other peoples perceptions when dealing with matters of our religion despite the negative or positive image it might bring, he added.

they r tryin to be more muslim than other muslim…nice!

we only answerable to our own GOD not to pak haji, pak ulama or others…

this old man always makes trouble…

Bukit Bintang there a lot. never see enforcer there.

im glad got no enforcer in miri.

o.o even though i dont do such things, i want to live without being watched.

:S

Retired nth to do?? :stuck_out_tongue:

■■■■■■■■ and nothing to do

indeed.

Malaysia calling for Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno caning sentence to be carried out but was silent when photos of Nazri and his son violating Islamic laws is a damn coward. A filthy coward of a dirty pig that should spend the rest of their days on Earth living in shame. If they were really “protectors of the faith” they would demand equal justice for all Muslims no matter social class. Instead of pictures of the woman facing caning under Islamic law in Malaysia playing with her kids, here are a few pictures of the son of a prominent Muslims minister by the name of Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz enjoying some wine and a cold beer in public no less.
