UPHILL TASK FOR MUSLIM WOMAN TO RENOUNCE ISLAM IN MALAYSIA

Labels: ,
The factory worker whose wedding at a Hindu temple was raided by the Selangor Islamic authorities will have an uphill task in obtaining a certificate of renunciation from the Shariah Court because of red tape, lawyers and an interfaith group said today. 
Responding to the predicament faced by Zarinah Abdul Majid, they said a Federal Court ruling had clearly stated that a Muslim who wanted to renounce Islam must get the certificate from the religious court before other documentation could be completed. 
They added that shariah courts in the past issued certificates but the applicant had to endure time-consuming bureaucracy. 
The Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism (MCCBCHST), however, felt the woman's remedy was in the High Court. 
Zarinah was arrested by the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) when she got married according to Hindu rites in a temple in Petaling Jaya on Sunday.
She was taken away by enforcement officers from the religious department, who were accompanied by policemen, after Zarinah's husband tied the "thali" around her neck, an act signifying they were married.
For the past seven years, Zarinah had tried to renounce Islam as she is a practising Hindu. Fed up over her efforts, she went ahead with the traditional Hindu ceremony, marrying her boyfriend of seven years.
