On the 24th November 1993, the Kelantan State Assembly passed the State’s Syariah Criminal Code (II) Bill 1993 which sought to introduce the imposition of “hudud” laws into the State of Kelantan. This article does not seek to discuss the validity or otherwise of the provisions of that enactment in relation of the provisions of the Federal Constitution or to discuss the overall provisions of the enactment. Rather, it focuses upon certain of the enactment’s specific provisions which have grave implications for women and discusses these implications in relation to the primary sources of Islamic law.
