Then again, people here consider every country out there unsafe, except for those with a similar crime level as us (Japan, Singapore, Korea etc.)
Who is us? Japan and Singapore are safer, with a lower crime rate, than almost anywhere.
And if you are talking about USA, we felt safer recently in China than we have ever felt at home in Australia, or in the US or in England.

Thousands of articles about what?

A claim that a law approved by the Malaysian constitution that applies only to Muslims was enforced?

This is shocking? They knowingly broke a law and will likely get a slap on the wrist.

Sharia is approved by the Malaysian constitution as a sort of state law, if you have a beef get them a lawyer, you act surprised that men and women aren't supposed to be alone before marriage, it's an old world custom and exists for good reason.

I don't agree with arresting anyone, but I see no proof it happened, no names, photos, nothing.

I also addressed some issues re: the scenario of planning to bomb a cancelled (by Muslims?) festival, which if true makes them (unwitting?) heroes.

Lives were saved by the cancellation you say Muslims were responsible for and you complain because people had to miss a day of drunken disorder?

Wow.

Your strange article is unconvincing, and seems purposed as a segway to the complaints of Christians over a Catholic paper using the Arabic word for God.

I really am not convinced this is true, who ratted out the 52 couples?

Seems rather far fetched and from a not so credible source, of thousands you selected on with no proof, just a few words from people I don't have a reason to trust.

It's not shocking. It's a discussion.

Your emotional reactions are the ones that are high, shocked, disgusted, accusatory.

On my side, it is simply a curiosity, no more.

Just google search....if you google search in English, there are a ton of stories. I just chose one.

It's rather pointless for me to google search 1 of the other 10,000; so you can show more disbelief, shock, disgust; and go through a cycle.

If you google search, and come back from a 'discussion' point-of-view, or informative one. It would be more interesting than the denial and angry reaction.

This is why malaysia needs to go back to it mahaphit roots and put garuda in its flag like indonesia. replace the cresent with garuda.

Sharia does not belong southeast asia. It only makes things worse. Look what happened to Iran, afghanistan, baluchistan, and sindh. the battle of nahvand was a tradegy for asia.

It looks like some UMNOtards are spamming your thread. Too bad. Some of them get paid to go onto social media sites and discussion forums to defend the corrupt UMNO administration lead by Najib 'Thief-in-Chief' Razak.

FWIW, I spent 17 years living in Malaysia, amongst the Malays. Nice people individually, but collectively they are bringing themselves down with their low esteem and attempts to raise themselves up by pulling down the other races.

For example, some Malays go berserk about the 'Allah' issue. Even though 'Allah' is the Arabic name for God, and non-Muslims all over the world use the name 'Allah' (even in Saudi Arabia) Malays want the government to ban non-Muslims in Malaysia from using the name 'Allah'. Why? Because the Malay berserkers say that it will cause their fellow Muslims to get confused and convert out of Islam. Duh. If Muslims are that dull and weak in their faith, then I doubt they were true adherents to Islam anyway.

I agree with Dangerous-Boy. Shariah law is backward and was meant for 7th Century Arabia, which is what Islam is basically: 7th Century Arabic culture fossilized.
