Muslims must practise Islam out of conviction, not out of fear of State sanctions

WE read the news about death threats made against Nik Elin Zurina Nik Abdul Rashid and her daughter Tengku Yasmin Natasha Tengku Abdul Rahman with much consternation. They have also received immense threats on social media, including calls for their house to be burnt down. The threats came after the two lawyers mounted a legal challenge against Kelantan's syariah criminal laws; the case resulted in the Federal Court nullifying 16 of the state’s provisions. Since then, they have been demonised as enemies of Islam.

In our opinion, the framing of the whole issue is politically motivated, manipulated, and blown out of proportion.
