Muslim Model fined, whipped for consuming beer
Malaysia, KUANTAN, July 20 – The Syariah High Court here today sentenced a model to a RM5,000 fine and six lashes after she pleaded guilty to consuming an alcoholic drink in public last year.
In his judgement, Syarie judge Datuk Abdul Rahman Yunus said in the event Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarnor, 32, from Sungai Siput, Perak, failed to pay the fine, she would be imprisoned for three years.
Kartini was accused of consuming a beer at Cherating Bay Lounge, the Legend Hotel in Cherating at about 11.40pm on July 11 last year.
She was charged under Section 136 of the Pahang Administration of the Islam Law and Malay Custom Enactment.
The accused, who cried when the judgement was delivered, said she would file an appeal through her counsel, Mohd Zuki Che Mat Ghani.
This is Islam for you, tells you what to wear, what to eat and what to drink? and if u dont listen u get a beating.I guess now I understand when someone called it a comprehensive religion, what he was talking about, it really runs / controls and ruins your life, its so comprehensive, its not even funny.
Enjoy the religion of peace.
I welcome the feedback.
