Another Malaysian Chamber of Horrors

This very day, Malaysian fascism continues to run amok, complete with religious 'counseling', religious 'police', and ID cards that identify 'religion'. Unbelievable inhumanity and inexcusable evil... though none dare speak of it.

Muslim convert who wants to renounce Islam to undergo counselling


PENANG: A Muslim convert who wants to renounce Islam after her Iranian husband left her will be referred to the State Islamic Religious Affairs Department for counselling.

Syariah High Court judge Othman Ibrahim instructed Siti Fatimah Tan Abdullah, 38, to undergo counselling at the Department's Unit Ukhwah (a unit on brotherhood and sisterhood in Islam) before the court decides on her application.

He said the court would therefore postpone the decision to Dec 3 pending the report from the unit.

Othman also instructed the court registrar to write to the unit to assist Siti Fatimah in religious matters.

When approached after the postponement, Siti Fatimah said she did not understand the court's instruction and would seek clarification from her counsel Ahmad Jailani Abdul Ghani.

A Chinese by birth, Siti Fatimah, who is from Nibong Tebal, filed the application in May last year.

In her affidavit to renounce the religion, Siti Fatimah, whose Chinese name is Tan Ean Huang, said she converted to Islam in July 1998 but never practised any of the Islamic teachings.
She claimed that she had converted for the sake of marrying an Iranian named Ferdoun Ashanian in 1999, but he left her a few months later.

She has no knowledge of his current whereabouts.

Siti Fatimah said she wants the Penang Islamic Religious Council to declare that she is no longer a Muslim under Section 61 (3) of the Penang Islamic Administration Enactment. She also wants the court to change the religious status on her identity card from Muslim to Buddhist.

Islam enslaves. It's like a roach motel, you can check in but you can't check out.
