Mufti Wilayah says you need 4 witnesses to prove sodomy

Zaid Ibrahim

According to the Mufti Wilayah, you should not accuse anyone of committing buggery without four witnesses. Otherwise, you commit qazaf. Qazaf is a serious offense.

In this case, I suggest buggery should not be made a crime; since there can never be a situation where you will find four ( male) witnesses to the incident.

In this way, we can avoid the accusations that we have politicians who are bisexual or homosexual. It means we can avoid the fracas in Parliament recently where an MP was ejected.

This suggestion should be seriously considered by the Reform Minister and amendments should be made to both the Penal Code and under Islamic law enactment.
