There is more to it than meets the eyes in the saga of the first Malaysian Muslim woman sentenced to be caned. It"s show business! And it is a sham!
It is reliably learn that the "impending" insistence of wanting to be caned, the case of Kartika Sari Dewi is not that cut and dried! She wants it because it is believed she has struck a deal with a television station of a neighbouring country down south that shall remained nameless, to record her "inhumane experience", a program that will be syndicated around the world!
The moment she is "caned" she will already be making hundreds of thousands in royalty over her story, and Malaysia will perpetually be condemned forever as an Asian country rules by "Taliban".
I will say this woman, who is married to a Singaporean, is not as "stupid" as she looks. Once caned Malaysia will forever be politically incarcerated as a country rules by Islamic fundamentalist ala Taliban in Afghanistan!
My suggestion is to deny her the "pleasure" of being caned and by that it will also deny her calculative capitalistic intention! Very evil and shrewd intentions I must say that if succeed will see her rich and famous and Malaysia....sigh....condemned!
So Malaysian government are you still insisting on being stupid as to go ahead with your archaic Islamic law? And be condemned as a once progressive nation sliding into a 15th century euphoria!? Read below:
KUALA LUMPUR: Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno, the part-time model who was fined RM5,000 and ordered to be given six strokes of the rotan after pleading guilty to drinking beer at a hotel in Cherating, Pahang, has given notice not to be disturbed.
Kartika, who is resigned to the sentence and wants it to be carried out quickly, said too many individuals, politicians, government organisations and non-governmental organisations had met her and her family lately.
This, she said, had occasionally disturbed her and her family's life and she had been urged to do things she did not want to do.
"As such, I give notice that I do not want to be disturbed by any individual, politician, government organisation and non-governmental organisation and any meeting that has, is and will be planned, and any communication with me and my family should be stopped immediately," said Kartika in a statement issued through the legal firm of Adham and Associates here yesterday.
Kartika said she would not hesitate to take legal action against any one who had disturbed her peace and that of her family. In her statement, she said she very much regretted the offence and was remorseful.
"I will not hold anyone responsible for carrying out the caning."
Kartika said she had received advice from several civil and syariah lawyers on the carrying out of the sentence and she was satisfied.
She had also appointed several civil and syariah lawyers from Adham and Associates in Ipoh to look after her interests and that of her family.
Kartika was sentenced by the Kuantan Syariah High Court on July 20 after pleading guilty to drinking beer at a hotel in Cherating on July 11 last year.
On Aug 24, the caning was postponed by Pahang Syariah High Court judge Datuk Abdul Rahman Yunus out of respect for the month of Ramadan. -- Bernama
