Tens of thousands of Malaysian Muslims rallied in the heart of Kuala Lumpur on Saturday to support the adoption more severe Sharia law.

Prime Minister Najib Razak has thrown his weight behind a contentious bill that seeks to incorporate parts of the Islamic penal code, or “hudud”, into Malaysia’s existing Islamic legal system.

Malaysian-LawThe amendments to Act 355, expected to be discussed in parliament when it sits next month, will allow the Islamic courts, which rule on religious matters and family law for Muslims, to impose a jail sentence of as long as 30 years, as many as 100 strokes of the cane and a fine of more than $22,000.

Currently, the maximum punishments are three-year jail term, six strokes of the cane and a fine of more than $1,100.

Critics of the bill warn that it could pave the way for full implementation of hudud, which prescribes punishments such as amputations and stoning, and disrupt the fabric of Malaysia’s multicultural and multi-religious society.
