Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister: Caning Must be explained...

Once people understand it, they will like it...
Days after three Muslim women were whipped for having illicit sex, Malaysian Deputy Premier Muhyiddin Yassin on Friday said religious authorities must explain properly the issue of caning under Sharia law to avoid the punishment from being viewed negatively by local and global communities.

The Deputy Prime Minister said many, including Malaysians, were horrified at the idea of a woman being caned because they did not know how it was executed.

"The caning punishment meted out by the Shariah court is legal and how the international community looks at it, is up to them. But I believe it is important that authorities make an effort to explain the procedure because it is far different from the impression many have," he said.

"While the caning sentence meted out by civil courts can cause hurt and sometimes even death, caning according to Shariah law is light. It is more to educate and remind Muslims to honour and abide by their religion," he said after chairing the Cabinet committee on human capital development.

Bert, men are perfect creatures in Islam, it is the female that is the root of all evil.

They are very cane-able it appears..

Dear govt.official of Malaysia..please do tell us how these canings (which have been know to cause death, but only in that dirty civil system..) are justifiable?

Why do so, when Islam's motto is 'never explain, never say your sorry'?
