Kelantan gov’t approves public caning with amendment to Syariah law

KOTA BARU: Criminals in the state can be caned in the public following an amendment to the Kelantan Syariah Criminal Procedure Enactment 2002 which was passed by the state assembly here today.

Deputy Menteri Besar Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah said previously canings were done in the prison.

“However, with the amendment, the sentencing can be carried out in public or prison depending on the court’s decision. This is in accordance with the religion, as in Islam the sentencing must be done in public,” he told reporters after the closing of the state assembly here today.

The amendments to the law was proposed by state Islamic Development, Dakwah and Information committee chairman Datuk Nassuruddin Daud and seconded by state Women, Family and Welfare committee chairman Mumtaz Md Nawi.

    “Criminals in the state can be caned in the public” doesn’t sound like it would not involve non-Muslims.

    My predictions:

    01 The first person to be caned will be for drinking beer … someone will want their 15-minutes of fame.

    02 More women than men will be caned.
