What happens if you defy the YOGA ban or even think about defying it?

Came across a very interesting article in Haris’s blog yesterday which he wrote on a fairly detailed article on what happens if you are a Muslim and goes against the Fatwa. To cut the long story short, i thought i’d give my Muslim friends a heads up. This is what the Constitution states against YOU!!!

Adapted from The People’s Parliament

Section 9 of the Syariah Criminal Offences ( Federal Territories ) Act, 1997 provides :

Any person who acts in contempt of religious authority or defies, disobeys or disputes the orders or directions of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong as the Head of the religion of Islam, the Majlis or the Mufti, expressed or given by way offatwa, shall be guilty of an offence and shall on conviction be liable to a fine not exceeding three thousand ringgit or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or to both.

Any person who gives, propagates or disseminates any opinion concerning Islamic teachings, Islamic Law or any issue, contrary to any fatwa for the time being in force in the Federal Territories shall be guilty of an offence and shall on conviction be liable to a fine not exceeding three thousand ringgit or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or to both.

Am going to leave this post with a very strong QUOTE from Haris. I love this so much…

“The net effect of both sections 9 and 12 above is obvious. Act contrary to the yoga fatwa and you’re nailed.

Hell, if you so much as think that the fatwa is wrong and articulate those thoughts, you’re nailed as well!”

I guess my kids should not learn Yoga, TaiChi, QiQong, WuShu,Silat as it is all too religious for them..
