Legality of punishment in Malaysia

Educating malaysians on syariah caning punishment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The issue of Syariah caning punishment is nothing new. However, the recent constant criticism in Malaysia propagating against its enforcement has prompted the researchers to conduct a brief study on the issue of Syariah caning and its rejection by a portion of the public. Throughout this study, the researchers observe that there is a minor non-compliance to the original method of caning as suggested by the Syariah. However, such minor non-compliance could definitely hamper effectiveness of punishment, deterrence and education on the society. This study also identifies the problem of ignorance on the actual fact and truth on Syariah caning among the general public. Last but not least, this study suggests that the Syariah caning procedures should be strictly adhered to if the desired effectiveness and result are to be achieved. As such the relevant authorities should be educated on the best and proper way of enforcing the said punishment so as to achieve the desired result. The researchers also feel that concerted efforts by all parties should be put in to educate the public more on the actual facts of this punishment.
