Storm Track Intimidation: Malaysia Weighs In As Intolerant
Allah must be working overtime. This time it in the ‘moderate’ Islamic nation of Malaysia.
Islamists raid hotel bar looking for boozy Muslims.
Some 100 Muslim patrons and workers were issued summonses when the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (JAIS) raided a pub at a hotel in Shah Alam.
JAIS public relations assistant director Mohd Hidayat Abd Rani, who confirmed that the raid took place on Friday, said the people involved were slapped with summonses as the department believed they had been consuming alcohol.
“We did a special operation at the state level. Those who were suspected of consuming alcohol were issued summonses and ordered to appear at the JAIS office on Aug 26 for counselling,” he said.
And a good canning, I expect.
And of course, book banning is always the rage by the Islamists.
Malaysia's state censors banned two books on Islam saying they gave a misleading view of the religion – a move slammed Friday by a group of Muslim women activists who published one of them.
The Home Ministry of Muslim-majority Malaysia banned the books because they might undermine people's faith, national news agency Bernama reported Friday.
The books were identified as the English-language "Muslim Women and the Challenge of Islamic Extremism" and the Malay-language "Strange but True in Prayers."
There were some protests on the ban.
The activist group Sisters in Islam, which published the book on Muslim women, criticized the ban.
Norhayati Kaprawi, an official with the group, said the book was an academic work in which female activists and scholars studied the impact of extremism on Muslim women's lives.
"For me, it's very ironic that the book itself is a victim of extremism. Does that mean women cannot even discuss extremism?" she said. "What do they want us to do? Lie down and shut up?"
Well, yes. If you’re a woman living under Islamic rule.
