Marina Mahathir, a reknowned HIV/AIDS activist and President of the Malaysian AIDS Council, liken the situation of Muslim women in Malaysia to black South Africans under apartheid. Apparently, this was supposed to be in her “Musings” column in The Star, but never made it to press due to some technicality. However, MBM has posted the full unedited version of Marina’s writeup.
Personaly, I couldn’t agree more. Religious laws are never a good idea to be implemented in society, they often lead to more harm than good. It’s not that I don’t believe in God’s rules. I just don’t believe in humans implementing them.
