Video Aksi Siti Zabedah Kasim di Wacana Akta 355

8 09 2016

Above was how a human rights lawyer, Siti Zabedah Kasim acted during a program hosted by Sinar Harian entitled, “Wacana Sinar Harian Akta 355: Antara Realiti dan Persepsi” at the Auditorium Sultan Muhammad ke-V, Kompleks Kumpulan Media Karangkraf.

The human rights lawyer in a very loud voice said that she is against the move to amend Act 355 which she said is an attempt to empower the Syariah Court.

She went on saying:

“Saya Melayu, saya seorang Melayu. Dan saya seorang Islam. Kenapa saya perlu dicontrol, didictate oleh orang orang begini. Ini adalah antara saya dengan tuhan.”

My question is, why is she so scared of the empowerment the Syariah Court that she wants to discriminate the rights of most Muslims who want to empower the Syariah Court?

She rudely pointed her middle finger as a sign of insult to those who do not agree with her loud speech.

Now, she pointed her middle finger and claimed that she is a Muslim, aren’t she ashamed of herself? 

Her actions insult the Muslims because it gives the image that Muslims are rude when in Islam it is wrong to insult others.

Is the Bar Council happy with this kind of behaviour shown by its member in a public event?

Hudud Is Against Federal Constitution, Total Freedom Is Not?

31 03 2015

Insider 16The Malaysian Insider (TMI) reported that, “Bar Council constitutional law committee chairperson Firdaus Husni said the current framework of Malaysia’s Federal Constitution did not allow for hudud implementation, based on several articles.”

According to TMI, the articles are Articles 7, 8 and 3 of the Federal Constitution.

It puzzles me when Firdaus Husni said that, “hudud could also be challenged using Article 3, which stated that Islam was the religion of the federation”; when hudud is a part of Islam and not against the religion of the Federation.

Article 3(1) says:

“Islam is the religion of the Federation; but other religions may be practised in peace and harmony in any part of the Federation”.

She went on saying:

“Instead, the 1993 Supreme Court case held it to mean that Islam in the context of Article 3 only relates to rituals and ceremonies,” –  The Malaysian Insider. 

I guess she was referring to the case of Che Omar Che Soh v Public Prosecutor (1988) 2 MLJ 55; an old case which is no longer a good law; in fact the case was decided before the coming into effect of Article 121(1A) of the Federal Constitution.

To define Islam in Article 3(1), she should refer to later and more important cases to like the cases of Meor Atiqul Rahman v Fatimah Sihi and others [2000] 5 MLJ 375 and Lina Joy v Majlis agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan & 1 Lagi [2007] 4
MLJ 585.

Furthermore, in Che’ Omar bin Che’ Soh v Public Prosecutor, Tan Sri Salleh Abbas did not say that Malaysia is a secular nation but Tan Sri Salleh Abbas only said that secular laws were used in Malaysia.

Articles 3(1), 11(4), 12(2), 37(1) and 121(1A) of the Federal Constitution proves that Malaysia is an Islamic country, in fact, that the word ‘secular’ has never been written in the Federal Constitution.

After giving all her arguments of why Hudud is against the Federal Constitution of Malaysia, I have a question for the Bar Council; has the Bar Council forgotten about Articles 3(1), 10(4), 11(4), 181 and others when it fights for the LBGT rights, the freedom for the Muslims to change their religion or to become atheists and to abolish of the Sedition Act?

Indeed as lawyers they surely understand that in order for the Sedition Act to be removed, it needs the consent of nine Sultans because the Sedition Act is related to Article 10 (4); but they do not respect and sort of question the rights of the Sultan which is against the Article 181 of the Federal Constitution.

The Bar Council also supports COMANGO that are fighting for lots of things that are against the Federal Constitution in Geneva.

To simplify what I am trying to say, I think those Bar Council lawyers do not mind to change the Federal Constitution in order to achieve what they want.

So what is the logic of the Bar Council’s arguments saying that Hudud is against the Federal Constitution, when they are also fighting for things which are against the Federal Constitution?

If we compare Hudud to the rights to leave Islam, I think Hudud as the Islamic laws is more relevant in Malaysia since Islam is the religion of the Federation.

As a Muslim, Bar Council lawyer, Firdaus Husni must fight for Islam and not against Islam.
