Indonesian Lawyers Want Islamic Law Extended To Non-Muslims

Topics: Understanding Islam

Indonesian Muslim lawyers want a "cuddle ban":

Experts in sharia law, which currently applies only to Malaysia's majority Muslims, proposed at a seminar that there should be a civil law to deal with non-Muslims found committing the Islamic crime of khalwat, or close proximity, with a Muslim.

"The Muslims can be sentenced in sharia courts and the non-Muslim partners can probably be sentenced in the civil courts, to be fair to both parties," a senior Malaysian sharia-court judge told the Star newspaper.

Mohd Asri Abdullah, a sharia appeal-court judge, was quoted as saying the proposal would be forwarded to the Malaysia's chief lawyer, the attorney-general, for government consideration.

.... coming to a neighborhood near you, if you don't wake up and recognize creeping sharia - and stop it.
