Radio Australia says
that the sultan of the Islamic-dominated country of Brunei is planning to impose sharia of the most graphic kind upon the public:
The Sultan of Brunei plans to enforce the tough Islamic penal code in phases over the next six months.
Punishments under the Hudud code, which applies only to Muslims, can include stoning to death for adultery, severing of limbs for theft and flogging for violations ranging from abortion to alcohol consumption.
The director of the Islamic Renaissance Front, Dr Ahmad Farouk Musa, told Radio Australia's Asia Pacific program he believes the new laws will lead to the erosion of personal freedoms and women's rights.
"This what is going to happen to Brunei, and we have heard about the Saudi sharia law, about Hudud, about how this one lady, a maid, who was being beheaded because she thwarted an attempt by her employer to rape her and inadvertently killed her employer," he said.
The decision to change the law will make Brunei the only east Asian country to do so at a national level.
What if it gets worse, and the influence spreads to other countries, even affecting Thailand and the Phillipines, who've got their own problems with Islamofascism? This is an extremely horrible case, and the worst part is that most western governments won't say a word in protest.
