"No hudud please, we're Malaysian" ???

Narrated Anas bin Malik radiallahuanhu: The Prophet salallahualaihiwasalam said, "None will have the sweetness(delight) of Faith

(a) till he loves a person and loves him only for Allah's sake,

(b) till it becomes dearer to him to be thrown in the fire than to revert to disbelief (Heathenism) after Allah has brought him out (saved him) from it,
(c) till Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad salallahualaihiwasalam) become dearer to him than anything else."

Narrated Tariq: 'Abdullah said, "The best talk is Allah's Book (the Qur'an), and the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad salallahualaihiwasalam.

They started the "article by saying are our politicians bad, crazy or stupid?" Does this not show you that they lack of good manners and respect to those who are seeking ways to improve the country (i.e politicans, governers)? They can argue with the politicians but calling them bad, crazy or stupid are not from the teaching of Islam. Narrated Abu Hurairah radiallahuanhu: The Prophet salallahualaihiwasalam said, "A good, pleasent, friendly word is a Sadaqa." [Sahih Bukhari]

The continued by saying "if I were the opposition, I would jump and present my party". This already shows that they are trying to divide the community. Show link. Also the title 'No hudud please, we're Malaysian' stresses on nationalism/tribalism. "And be not as those who divided and differed among themselves after the clear proofs had come to them. It is they for  whom there is an awful torment." (surah al-an'am verse 35) Nationalism is HARAM because the Prophet Mohammad (saw) said in the following Hadeeths:
"Leave it. It is Rotten " [Bukhari & Muslim] refers to all forms of Asabiyah, nationalism, racism, and patriotism. 
Grouping the Muslims on tribalistic lines is clearly forbidden. It is narrated by Abu Daud that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said, "He is not one us who calls for `Asabiyah, (nationalism/tribalism) or who fights for `Asabiyah or who dies for `Asabiyah."
" ...People should give up their pride in nations because this is a coal from the coals of hell-fire. If they do not give this up Allah (swt) will consider them lower than a lowly worm which pushes itself through khur (feces)." [abu Dawd and Tirmidhi].

"An offer of the hudud law and its grim serving of chopped-off Muslim hands and feet, and stoning to death! What kind of future is that?" This clearly indicates that their definition of future is only in the lifetime of this world. They are entirely worried of what is going to happen to "Malaysia" in the future but not considering about the Muslims in the hereafter. Muslims should believe that future also means in the hereafter.

"So it's okay for Muslims to be brutalised?" There should be no police or jail if they put it in that sense if they are scared to be brutalised. Nobody should go to jail because that person is being brutalised and deprived from the main society. The idea of jail is to make people fear of it so that nobody would dare to make any evil. If anyone decides to do evil, they would be punished to prison, life sentence and etc. Similarly with hudud law, it is to create the fear and reminder that there is even a worse punishment in the hereafter. I can point out that by doing hudud, the taxpayers money will be saved to pay the food and accommodation of the prisoners. Plus, those who committed evil acts are not likely to commit again.

"What if the thief was a Chinese or Indian ...while the Malay is now disabled.." The issue here is about Muslims and their law, why write Chinese, Indian and Malay? This MAY BE because they are trying to strike racial issues. Clearly we have chinese muslims, malay christians and etc. There is no need to include race in this issue/article. This article is either trying to provoke or just simply bad composition. Hence, clearly there is no conspiracy to make the MALAYS permanently disabled. The hudud law is made to encourage MUSLIMS to do good and avoid commiting evil.

"But they are Malaysian citizens who have every rights to speak up on laws that allow for brutal and inhumane punishments against their fellow citizens, the majority population boot." This clearly shows that we do not have personal rights to practise our religion! Clearly they do not receive the knowledge in the Qur'an or the pious Muslims about Prophet Noah. If it was clearly up to the majority, they would be afflicted by destruction. Muslims believes in the law that was prescribed, by following the majority will not let us practice it!

"Who wants to live in such society when your neighbour, ... are subject to a cruel legal system?" Another question can be raised from this is that who wants a neighbour who is a criminal and is not afraid to commit evil? Narrated Ibn Umar radiallahuanhu Allah's Mesengger salallahu alaihiwasalam said, "Jibril kept on recommending me about treating the neighbours kindly and politely, so much so I thought that he would order me to make them as my heirs." [Sahih Bukhari]

Narrated Abu Shuraih: The Prophet salallahualaiwasalam said, "By Allah, he does not believe! By Allah, he does not believe! By Allah, he does not believe! It was said, "Who is that, O Allah's Messenger?" He said, "That person whose neighbour does not feel safe from evil." [Sahih bukhari]

They have mistaken rape for zina. Clearly rape is different from zina. Zina is consensual but was witnessed/caught by some. Rape is non-consensual.
During the time of the Prophet (saw) punishment was inflicted on the rapist on the solitary evidence of the woman who was raped by him. Wa'il ibn Hujr reports of an incident when a woman was raped. Later, when some people came by, she identified and accused the man of raping her. They seized him and brought him to Allah's messenger, who said to the woman, "Go away, for Allâh has forgiven you," but of the man who had raped her, he said, "Stone him to death." (Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud)

During the time when Umar (raa) was the Khalifah, a woman accused his son Abu Shahmah of raping her; she brought the infant borne of this incident with her to the mosque and publicly spoke about what had happened. Umar (raa) asked his son who acknowledged committing the crime and was duly punished right there and then. There was no punishment given to the woman. (Rauf)
Islamic legal scholars interpret rape as a crime in the category of Hiraba. In ‘Fiqh-us-Sunnah’, hiraba is described as: ‘a single person or group of people causing public disruption, killing, forcibly taking property or money, attacking or raping women (hatk al ‘arad), killing cattle, or disrupting agriculture.’ [Can be found at]

Clearly this Hudud law have caused fear in their hearts. Hence it shows how effective the Hudud law because it managed to cause fear and may Allah make us righteous muslims so that we are avoided from the punishment in this world and the hereafter.
may we always be guided to the right path. Insha'Allah.
