Aiyoo, better be careful-lah, those of you who are abit frisky and doing ‘you know what’ with your Malay/Muslim boyfriend(s)/girlfriend(s).
According to the STAR, some seminar in Kuala Lumpur wants non-Muslims found committing khalwat (close proximity) with Muslims to also be punished, but in civil courts.
The thing that sets me thinking about this is often I see the ones get reprimanded are students and youths, who are nabbed in the park, in low cost flats or some dingy outlets. Unfortunately, these guys and girls have little money to spend or they’ll book a hotel room or go overseas for their rendevous.
Not that I support punishing people for being close (in proximity or otherwise), but I really wish to see some big fish also pay the price for their so-called “immorality”. Unfortunately, these people have lots of money and can pay for privacy, and perhaps even “coffee-money” to those officials in duty. They carry out their rendevous in five star hotels and they are assured of non-intereference by just using the “do not disturb” sign.
I wonder what the Attorney General will say about this “brilliant” idea?
