I urge those who are both for and against the implementation of Hudud to read this article with the serious goal of understanding the issue. It is important that we know what we are supporting and what we are disagreeing with.
Prof Hashim Kamali is one of the world’s leading Islamic jurists, probably the top 3 and the good news is he has been here in Malaysia for a good many years and he is currently the CEO & Chairman of the International Institute of Advanced Islamic Studies (IAIS) Malaysia. He was also Professor of Law in IIUM. He has written extensively on the subject. To know more about him google here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mohammad_Hashim_Kamali
Since I posted Dr Chandra’s article about the subject PAS’s ILL- CONCEIVED HUDUD MOVE by Dr. Chandra Muzaffar many have enquired about Prof Kamali’s article as mentioned in the blog post. I have obtained permission to share with you the analysis from the good Professor’s office below.
