Deployment of Police Officers to JAIS Reflects Misplaced Priorities

The Joint Action Group for Gender Equality (JAG) questions the need of the decision by The Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) to conduct a pilot project which places two police officers and a Sergeant at the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (JAIS) to assist in the enforcement of Syariah laws. We are especially concerned as PDRM is a federal body and the allocation of federal resources for a state religious body reflects grave misplacement of priorities.

While the deployment of police officers at JAIS may seem like an effort to increase accountability and professionalism of the religious authorities, this pilot project would likely only focus on the implementation of the Selangor Syariah Criminal Offences Enactment specifically on moral policing, with little attention given to the laws themselves and their impact on our fundamental liberties.
