Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarnor's Case - Malaysian Syariah Courts ' All smoke No fire'.
It had to happen! All these dilly dallying with our nation's man made modified versions of the Islamic Syariah Laws and one part time model's sentencing which has unearthed a Pandora's box of legal uncertainties and flip flopping between what Allah the Almighty commanded the `Ulul Amri and what they in turn came up with?
Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno is to be congratulated for her persistence in wanting to be punished here on earth for her mistakes and getting what she deserves as what the Kuantan Syariah Court sentenced her for drinking beer publicly.
The audacity of what the Syariah system here in Malaysia came up with a laughable excuse that they have no one trained to cane really makes our Malaysian justice system now a classic case of all smoke but no fire!
Mankind ought not play around with God's Laws.
This is what happens when a government takes only partial measures in following God's Laws and tries to modify rules and regulations as it suits them.
If our Malaysian Government really wants to live up to its claim of being an Islamic country, then why the heck do they run scared of implementing the true Syariah Laws of Almighty Allah upon the country?
Do they think that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala is unjust?
He is our Creator.
He Knows us best.
When He lays down the law, there is a reason for it.
Whomsoever does not rule the Muslims according to what Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and His Final and Greatest Messenger have commanded and enjoined to does not merit the role of being the ruler or rulers over us!
Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarnor is but part and parcel of Allah's Masterplan.
All these years since Malaysia achieved its independence, we have been hearing of calls by those who want this country to be under Islamic Law in its totality but was always beat down by the excuse of this country being a multi faithed, multi ethnic nation.
The ones who came into power and yet also claimed to have ruled according to Islamic Syariah however have been shortchanging the people of this nation by modifying the true Syariah Laws to suit their needs and masquerade as a model, moderate Islamic nation before the whole wide world.
We host the International Quran Recitation Contest yearly without fail and put up a grand show of being all that there is to be a model Islamic nation.
Those who are Muslims in the real sense know that we are not!
We have yet to ever apply any of Allah's Syariah Laws per se upon the populace of this country!
When Malaysia's 4th Prime Minister Tun Dr.Mahathir Mohamad declared that we are a fundamentalist Islamic nation, there was a hue and cry over his statement!
The DAP National Chairman, Lim Kit Siang and his DAP Central Executive Committee threatened to take Dr Mahathir to court over such a declaration and opposed it vehemently!
This polemic of claiming to be a fundamentalist Islamic nation or government and then proceeding to make a mockery of the true Islamic Syariah by inventing their own interpretations of such Divine Rules has been the modus operandi of the religious authorities of Malaysia.
When I asked the top authority of the Islamic Affairs Department as to why we have this status quo, the person replied that at times whenever the religious department tried to carry out their jobs according to the Quran, the royals would question them as to whether they were trying to usurp the royal's position as the 'Keepers of the Faith'?
So frankly speaking, the way I learned as to why we have all these problems in implementing the true Syariah Laws of Almighty Allah which if implemented in its totality would bring about a true state of justice for all involved, is the reality that our nation's religious authorities are actually caught between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea!
They are screwed!
If they go ahead and impose any of the laws of Allah, they get hauled up by the palace.
When they try to ignore whatever is looming up in their face, they get whacked by the public as not doing what they have been elected or appointed to do?
Just imagine, the ridiculous excuse we hear that the Kajang Prison has no trained personnel to cane Kartika for her punishment!!!
What's so hard about carrying out the sentence as she has wished for?
Worse come to worse, let her father cane her if the prison authorities have no spine to carry out their duties?
Kartika is actually teaching the so called Syariah Courts of Malaysia a very important lesson!
Do not bite off more than you can chew!
If you really truly want to impose and implement the Syariah that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala here in this so called Islamic Kingdom of Malaysia, then you better get your act together and practice what you preach or issue her a royal pardon since you guys aren't really up to it!!!
If you are truly God fearing rulers and can really live up to your responsibilities, then you better start taking action against all the Muslims involved in the hotel industry where most of the bartenders, waiters, suppliers, distributors, Anchor and Carlsberg Brewery Board of Directors are Malay Muslims and in the case of the brewery BOD a Negri Sembilan Royal to boot!!
Do you have the spine to carry out all these or is Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno, a convenient scapegoat to be done with as you all please?
You can't have it both ways.
We are either a true fundamentalist Islamic nation as Mahathir declared or we are just another run of the mill 'all smoke and no fire' kingdom.
Hard to find someone to cane Kartika?
Try contacting the Islamic Autonomous Region of Acheh, Sumatera, Indonesia.
They sure have all the trained and professional people over there.
'Bisa di atur' Pak Hishamudin! Pokoknya mahu!!!

In the meantime, Kartika suffers from all the media hullabaloo and worldwide news coverage that she has now inadvertently been exposed to because our Syariah Justice system has turned out to be an official 'tease' for now.
Not to dismiss off all the liberalists and Islamophobes out there having a ball in ridiculing the religious authorities here in the country for their mishandling of this case.
When Mankind resorts to foolhardiness in handling matters as serious as this, then just wait for the consequences of such indecisiveness that the Justice System here has proven themselves to be prone to!
