Malaysian woman can leave Islam


news.bbc.co.uk

Analysts say the judge used a very liberal interpretation of the law because in many countries converts are treated just like those who are born into Islam - and are prohibited from changing their faith.

Islamic affairs are governed at a state level so this decision may not form a precedent for other parts of Malaysia.

The local religious council in Penang may also appeal against the ruling.

The main thing to take note of here, is the state is controlling who can be of what religion, with the bias being on the controlling religion. That source states that this may not be a president, so any others who wish to convert may face jail time or worse should they try to do so. Yet another reason why religion should never be allowed to govern a country.

I love the use of Sharia courts to judge apostates. Hello? They aren't Muslims! Sharia court means nothing to them now!

Ok they are Muslim, so the Sharia, and the associated cort means nothing to them, so what is the point? Are you saying there should be no Sharia cort? Or no one should be stopped from entering or leaving one religion or another?
