Discourse on Hudud in Malaysia: Addressing the Missing Dimension

Implementation of Islamic criminal law particularly of the hudud at present time, beyond its politics, raises numerous juridical problems of substantive law, procedure and evidence.

Much has been written on the issue of applicability of hudud law in Malaysia. But, by and large, the discourse revolves around its feasibility or otherwise in the context of the existing legal framework at the behest of local academia as well as politician. Little attention has been paid to the question of the type and model of hudud that is going to be codified. This study argues that the discourse on hudud would not be complete unless hard questions surrounding its substance and practical procedures are judiciously disposed.
