Up until just lately, before a desperate woman contacted me via Facebook to basically hit me up to get married to her as a means of escaping what is obviously a very intolerable society, i had no idea just how totalitarian and religeously over-burdened Malaysia is.
I knew it was a islam dominated country, but my understanding was that the Najib Razak quasi-democratic government at the very least still fully upheld freedom of religeon and i definitely had no idea to what great extent Sharia Law or slightly more mild variants of it have hijacked the Malaysian legal system, and in particular, that country’s home affairs branch of government.
Seriously, it’s easier to escape out of Cuba under Marxism than Malaysia under right wing muslim rule. I think this woman, who is muslim, who was born in Bosnia and escaped to Malaysia during the Balkan war in the 90′s, saw me as an oppurtunity to get herself and her three year old son a new start and she even had already taken the initiative to hire a lawyer, and was already making plans for us when she managed to board that plan to freedom out of Kuala Lumpur, sooner rather than later.
Without knowing a whole lot about Malaysian immigration laws and regulations relating to Malaysians travelling temporarily overseas, what i do know is that it’s really hardcore and full-on stuff, highly fascist, like for instance a child born to a non-national like Miriam, who comes from Bosnia, cant leave Malaysia until they’re 17 for anything other than a special engagement that the parent or parents would literally have to apply to the head of home affairs or the prime minister’s office to get permission for.
Anyone who wasn’t born in Malaysia have no freedom to just hop on a plane when they feel like it and when they have the money and go for an overseas trip, they are basically imprisoned and forced to stay in Malaysia in no way diffrent than the russians locked up eastern europeans behind the Iron Curtain for half a century.
Islamic fundamentalism is right wing in the extreme, it’s not left wing communism and there’s nothing egalitarian in nature about Sharia Law or Malaysia’s so called moderate variation – ISLAM HADHARI. If the latter was genuinely conservative then why has islam completely infiltrated politics in Malaysia, hence there’s no way the country constitutes a sectarian society.
Putting it bluntly Malaysia is in practical terms operating like a Sunni-muslim dictatorship. Miriam is a beautiful woman who i know has a big heart, would i have married a Bosnian muslim with a kid who i never had met in real life to get her out of the islamic prison that’s Malaysia – the answer is yes, but sadly it ain’t gonna happen, because there is no escape.
