Fair if Muslim loses hand, non-Muslim jailed

Published on  |  Modified on

It is fair for a Muslim to have his hand chopped off for a crime under hudud, even if the crime is committed jointly with a non-Muslim who can be punished under civil law, Kelantan Deputy Menteri Besar Nik Amar Abdullah said today.

Speaking at a forum on the PAS proposal to implement hudud, organised by Malay daily Sinar Harian , Nik Amar said this was because the Muslim individual embraced Islam by choice and thus had to accept the religion and its laws as a whole.
