Kedah vigilantes a grave problem

Kamal Ariffin

THERE seems to be growing contention in our society that the development and image of Islam would be greatly enhanced only when illicit sex is monitored and curbed. Or so we are led to believe by a vigilante group called the Badar squad in Sg Petani, Kedah.

Sg Petani folk generally appreciate the vigilantes’ work to prevent immoral activities in their town.

However, they are also concerned that the group’s actions, though well intentioned, are illegal. There are residents who are uncomfortable with the squad’s activities, too.

For the last two years, the self-appointed moral police, comprising between 20 and 40 men, set up stake-outs at budget hotels and parks almost every weekend in search of unmarried couples having illicit sex.

Those nabbed are taken to a cemetery, where they are counselled. – November 15, 2018.
