Storm Track Infiltration: Those Moderate Muslim Countries Are At It Again

Indonesia and Malaysia has been thrown into the face of the free world as an example of Islamic moderation. Too bad it’s not coming true.

First Indonesia. It seems that the Muslims there can not get enough of Shari law.

An official in-charge of Sharia law in Aceh calls for more laws to punish crimes after a mob attempted to carry out a Sharia-style punishment by amputating the hand of a thief.

It seems the misguided ignorant Muslim did not apply Shari law properly - So…..

More Sharia or Islamic laws are needed to guide the people in the Indonesian province of Aceh, according to Dhiauddin, an official in-charge of Sharia law in the province.

Dhiauddin made the remarks to Adnkronos International (AKI) in response to an attempt by a group of residents in a North Aceh village to cut off the hand of an alleged thief on Saturday.

This was the first time an attempt was made to carry out a Sharia-style punishment of this kind in the province.

So what faux pas did the over zealous Muslim commit?

"What we need is more Sharia laws," said Dhiauddin, the deputy director of Dinas Sharia Islam Banda Aceh, the official that is in-charge of proclaiming Islamic laws.

Aceh is the only province in Indonesia that has the right to apply Sharia law beyond matters pertaining to marriage, divorce and inheritance.

However cutting off the hand of thief, is not listed as a punishment in Aceh.

Well, we can’t have that. Why not add beheading to the list while you’re at it. So civilized.

Meanwhile – in the other moderate Islamic country – Malaysia, the Islamic Party there is pushing for Sharia Law.

A leader of Malaysia's Islamist party, which made surprising gains in March elections, wants its secular allies to apply strict sharia law, which include amputations and stonings for Muslims.

The hardline Parti Islam se-Malaysia (PAS) has enacted such laws in its Kelantan stronghold to punish rapists and adulterers with stoning to death, while thieves would lose their limbs.

However, the country's Federal government has barred PAS from enforcing the laws.

Give it time. Give it time. Just a matter of time.

"Islam is a moderate, soft religion," PAS spiritual leader Nik Aziz Nik Mat told Reuters late last week in the northeastern state of Kelantan, the party's stronghold for the past 18 years.
