Regarding the matter of Aisyah Tajuddin on a video of her questioning if implementing hudud law can fix the economy, has received death and rape threats by the facebook and youtube users. The BFM presenter will be probed under Section 298 of the penal code told by Inspector General of Police, Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.
More or less about this case, the question is not about she received death and rape threats or she is not the script writer on that video, the point is that a provocation of such magnitude was bound to raise comments or to some extreme, uncalled for threats over the viral video on insulting hudud law.
As A Muslim, we can’t simply question about religion when it come to the law that had been set by Allah. Allah has mentioned in Quran, “It is not for a believing man or a believing woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decided a matter, that they should [thereafter] have any choice about their affair. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger has certainly strayed into clear error” (In Surah Al- Ahzab, verse 36). It is true what had been said by Kelantan Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Yakob to those who don’t want to implement hudud law as not having faith.
BFM said in a statement that they had no intention on insulting hudud law and just aimed at providing “a satirical commentary” on whether the implementation of hudud law should be the Kelantan government’s top priority is something tricky and need to be investigate because the statement were not same as what had been shown up in the video. Therefore, the thing that we can learn from this case, don’t start a fire when you are not brave enough to be burnt. It means that you can’t simply do any kind of provocation on religion and then expect to just simply ask for forgiveness after causing deep hurt by the action.
