and (like most of my decisions) it was made out of curiosity. I spent a couple of weeks backpacking Malaysia and the country totally blew me away. Visa entry to Malaysia is I arrived into Malaysia through the Thailand/Malay border.I’d often heard about it but nothing beyond the city limits of Kuala Lumpur and the luxury resorts off the coast of Penang, and I knew there had to be more to be discovered. We hired a local man and his van to drive us to the border in Thailand and then walked through and caught another man in a van on the other side. helping broke backpackers explore the world since the age of the hippies!Shabudin also predictably said his decision to reject a motion banning child marriages was made because it was contrary to the provisions in sharia law. Hardline Islamists have challenged this ideal through the courts, bureaucracy, government, and even in the streets in an attempt to impose their own brand of sharia law on the rest of the country.Concerns have been mounting over the years, with sporadic incidents including the firebombing of churches, a ban on non-Muslims using the word Allah, and the occasional banning of rock concerts and entertainment acts considered too risqué for hardline Muslim groups.For instance, a special court will be set up to deal with child sexual abuse cases, which is an enormous step forward given past and present attitudes.People possessing or distributing child pornography involving those under the age of 18 could face up to 30 years in jail and six strokes of the whip.Tough times for India. hrs IST: End of the third quarter.India had a good chance to take the lead, but Mandeep Singh missed the goal.

This week, Shabudin Yahaya, a member of Malaysia’s ruling Barisan Nasional coalition, sparked outrage when he appeared to suggest in Parliament there was nothing wrong with a rape victim marrying her rapist because her future would not be so bleak. And at that time, their body is already akin to them being 18 years old. Irrespective of what Shabudin actually said and meant, to some, his comments fit into a broader trend in Malaysia where politicians increasingly hide behind the Quran to justify their erosion of democracy and basic decency.
So physically and spiritually, it is not a barrier for the girl to marry,” Shabudin said during a debate on the bill. Shabudin later complained his comments were taken out of context, adding he was not saying that marriage was the “back door exit to legalize rape,” and threatened to take legal action against the media, which he said had manipulated his remarks. Malaysia, a Muslim-majority country which constitutionally guarantees the protection of religious freedoms of other sizable minorities, has increasingly seen its image as a moderate, tolerant, and secular society tainted.
