WE, the G25 comprising concerned Muslim citizens, call for the upholding of the highest standards of justice in the implementation of laws, including hudud laws. “Be just, that is nearer to righteousness.” (Quran 5:8). Justice is the overriding principle of Islam.

Bearing in mind the injunction for Muslims to be the best and moderate community or khaira ummatin-ummatan wasatan and recognising that there is a diversity of juristic interpretations or iktilaf concerning hudud laws as part of Syariah laws, we have concerns as to whether the Kelantan Hudud law, namely the Kelantan Syariah Criminal Code (11) Enactment, 1993 as amended in 2015 will succeed in upholding justice as enjoined in the Quran.
