Malaysia - US couple harassed by Islamic officials

The Gulf Times reports.

Randall Barnhart, 62, and his wife Carole, 61, were rudely awakened in their rented apartment in the early hours of the morning earlier this month by religious officials conducting a raid on ‘khalwat’ couples.

Under Islamic law, which operates alongside the civil code in multicultural Malaysia, ‘khalwat’ - close proximity between a man and a woman who are not married - is forbidden.

The couple, who were on a six-week sailing holiday in Malaysia, have been married for 42 years and are Christians.

Remember, 40% of British Muslims want Islamic law in Britain.
