Implementing hudud in Malaysia would do justice to neither syariah itself, nor the people subjected to the law, argues lawyer Syahredzan Johan.

Syahredzan said Islam has envisaged a comprehensive system of values for society that includes the spelling out of obligations to God, to the state and to one another, in which hudud serves to punish the most severe crimes.

In such a system, he said, hudud would arguably be able to mete out justice.
