The Malaysian Insider(TMI) reported that, “Bar Council constitutional law committee chairperson Firdaus Husni said the current framework of Malaysia’s Federal Constitution did not allow for hudud implementation, based on several articles.”
According to TMI, the articles are Articles 7, 8 and 3 of the Federal Constitution.
It puzzles me when Firdaus Husni said that, “hudud could also be challenged using Article 3, which stated that Islam was the religion of the federation”; when hudud is a part of Islam and not against the religion of the Federation.
Article 3(1) says:
“Islam is the religion of the Federation; but other religions may be practised in peace and harmony in any part of the Federation”.
