Brunei Sultan Rules Death By Stoning For Gay People

In a shift to a harsh Islamic penal code, the leader of the southeast Asian country of Brunei has mandated the death penalty for a wide variety of offenses, including homosexuality.

The United Nations Commission on Human Rights expressed its concern over the new laws.

"We are deeply concerned about the revised penal code in Brunei Darussalam, due to come into force later this month, which stipulates the death penalty for numerous offences," said Rupert Colville, spokesman for the UN high commissioner for human rights.

Colville said that punishable offenses include rape, adultery, sodomy, extramarital sexual relations for Muslims, and also crimes such as robbery, murder, defamation of the Prophet Muhammad, and declaring oneself a non-Muslim.

"Application of the death penalty for such a broad range of offences contravenes international law," Colville said.

Despite assurances from Brunei officials that prosecutors would require a high burden of proof to enforce capital punishment, Colville said that stoning is banned under global human rights treaties as it constitutes "torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.”

There have been no executions in Brunei since 1957. But the country’s all-powerful sultan, Hassanal Bolkiah, announced last October that his sultanate would be phasing in Islamic sharia law, which dictates punishments like flogging and stoning, the Times of India reports.

Brunei’s brand of Islam has always been more conservative than that of Malaysia and Indonesia, its neighbors. The sale and public consumption of alcohol is illegal, and other religions are tightly restricted. The sultan recently referred to his country as a “firewall” against globalization.

While the punishment for same-sex relations was previously 10 years in prison in Brunei, those found guilty will now be subjected to death by stoning.

“The provisions of the revised penal code may encourage further violence and discrimination against women and also against people on the basis of sexual orientation,” Colville said.

The code is expected to go into effect April 22.

    1. It's not the religion and it will never be an acceptable idea that one religion is superior/BETTER/NICER to others. A true Muslim and Islam respects the existence of other religion. So watch ur words, I am intolerant of ignorance.

If u really care about them, help. Not stoning them to death. Well fuck u is this how your religion taught u? Eliminate those who are weak and not the same as u? Whr is the humanity in this religion? Stoned to death too? Obviously u sound more disgrace than other religion.

    13. Well, human are born to ba natural which is not knowing anything, they are just like a plain white clothes, but their environment and parents are the one who will coloured them, if they being coloured to become Gay, they will become gay, if thet coliured to become a man that love a woman, then they will grow up like that. As like houses they are build with a very strong base, if not thr biilding will collapse, in some cases, God will interfere with some guideance towars the truth, but it also up to the human to decide, whether he want to follow or not.

      So please, there are no such thing born as gay or homo, its the people and the environment that creates and shaped people. So thats why in islam, the most important part is, to show example to the children, which is according to prophet Muhammad Pbuh ways of life.

      You said that islam ways is harsh and violent, but you cant denied, that the rules and the ways you are using right now, cannot solve the problem that presist. But the way of islam can, as they trow the stone, the people who seen it, will become afraid to do the same thing or will afraid to do the wrong doing. Its much effective, as you can see on western they said jail is correctional institution, but they cant denied, that most people that has been trown in the jail didnt change a bit, and even in the jail they have their own so called gang and drugs trafic.

      Islam ways, is much more on giving warning and example to all of the people, so that they avoid the wrong doing.

      UN keep interfeiring with muslim countries while they cant even solve the major attack of the israel to palestine. Human rights? Are they even exist when America launch an attack on afghanistan claiming there was a weapon that until todat they cant find even one? Are they even take any action when israel using sulphur bom?

      So stop making me laugh already, these organization are not reliable, they only knowingly to talk behind their desk.

      Islam is the best way to teach people in these world, to correct their ways of live. P/S: Eveb though you said negative things about Brunei, yet it economic are stable, their countrt are among the most peacefull country. And evenn in such pressure, their country men didnt even want to move out from there!

  2. All religion has its downside. All are capable of intolerance to what they found offensive to their way of life. They pick specific verse on their holy scripture to prove their point instead of the hundreds of verses promoting peace and love.

  3. The world suffers a lot, not just because of the violence, corruption and the beliefs of some people, bad or inhuman...but because of the SILENCE of Good People who followed without questions...EVIL triumphs when GOOD men do nothing.

    All Religion teaches good things in life. What becomes bad when Rulers, Imams, Priest, etc. teaches things for their own good. Remember that God is All forgiving...merciful..and it is all written in the books..either in Bible or Koran....What is important in this world is humanity....the Good shall be praised and the bad shall be jailed...to have a chance to repent and be human....If only Humanity is more superior than Government and Religion...there will be no wars, no injustices and divisions of people!!...Religion and Politics is the reason why people are divided...Catholics, Christians, Muslims, Jehovah Witnesses, Iglesia ni Cristo, Buddhism, etc.....these are the work of men...not from God....Why not have a choice of Humanity???..no need for religion...or whatever...Just believe in One true God...follow the International laws of Humanity...that's it!!!

  8. Where is the humanity in this, this is just to inhumane, I understand that being gay is a sin in Islam but I believe only Allah can punish us for our sin and not any one else because he create us and he his the only one who can understand us, all of us are born differently, but we are also are tested differently example like the problem and challenges on a day to day basis, so in this case being gay or straight is not our choice. We did not choose our path, if you were to ask a Gay person did you choose to be Gay I am very sure he/she would not say yes, so punishing Gay people is wrong cause they did not choose this path. We cant assume that Gay people have a choice because we don't know that what they have gone through on a day to day basis. The only thing we do now is judging them for thier sin and thinking we have the right to punish them but then we are also sinner in different ways hence the only person who can't really punish us is God himself.

      If you are a Muslim.repent to Allah as soon as you can.
      The way you spoke about Islam is without sufficient and efficient knowledge.

      Gay CHOSE their path.Not by NATURE.
      If you say day by day basis events that create this GAY race and cannot be punish this way.
      So..Murderers that were created also cannot be hang to death and its up to Allah to punish?.

      Learn and research about how the syariat laws are permissible by Allah for human to carry out.

      If you are STONED on earth,you have paid for your debts and sin free and Allah forgives you and you will enter PARADISE.

      You rather be punish in Hell Fire than being stoned? Please try and do so.

      MAY ALLAH HAVE MERCY ON YOU.

    3. Choosing to engage in a prohibited act such homosexuality is a choice that is punishable by a Khalifah if sufficent proof is established(4 trustworthy witnesses to the event (seeing the penis inserted into the anus). As far as the desire this is not a choice and is not punishable under the shariah. One who is affected by such sinful inclinations either abstains from a sexual active life or if they are attracted to the opposite gender also then they just accomplish their desire in a lawful marriage.

  10. Alhamduillah, in these modern days there is still ruler like this following such rules.
    The Sultan land is protect by Allah, subhan Allah . That is why there is no natural disaster or corruptions in the country.
    Insya Allah one day his effort will be praise, not the humans but by God(Allah) , prophets and angels

    Talking about homosexuality;
    Yes sometimes its not your choice and yes sometimes you are born with it.

    But cant you people see, this is one of the challenges that God (Allahu-Akhbar) sent to selected individuals to test their faith, their lust in folllowing their heart or mind.
    Reasons why judgement day is getting nearer cause most of the human choses heart rather than mind that is already know the sin.
    God Almighty created us and knows more than us.
    May all of us be forgiven by Him.

  15. Tiada satu pun dlm jasad kita ini yg benar2 milik kita kecuali DOSA dan pahala.. yg lain2 adalah milik Allah dan apa shj didlm dunia ni milik Allah termasuklah batang tubuh kita. Kita rasa pahala kita banyak dan layak ke syurga tp ia tetap atas rahmat Allah juga utk masuk ke syurga. Pointnya disini, Allah dah jadikan kita mengikut fitrah kejadian yg lelaki sebagai lelaki dan perempuan sebagai perempuan tp bila kamu melayan kehendak nafsu kamu.. kemudian kamu nak salahkan Allah dgn mengatakan ia ketentuan Allah kerana itu SAYA jadi GAY.. apalah punya pemikiran jika begitu? Boleh ker kamu terima akal sekiranya kamu ada anak kandung tetapi bila anak itu besar dia mengatakan kamu bukan ayahnya? Jgn salahkan Allah bila kamu lari dari fitrah kejadian sebab itu semua atas sebab hawa nafsu kamu sendiri. Berubahlah sebelum terlambat. Kamu lelaki dan kamu mempunyai alat kelamin yg boleh mengeras dan mengecut tp kenapa kamu cenderung kepada amalan yg songsang?

    1. Do you know why there is a huge oil reserve in Brunei, Saudi Arabia and all other Muslim countries? Because these countries are bless by Allah the All Mighty. Only Turkey's oil reserve dried up in history for changing the the Islamic rule to Secular rule of law by Mustafa Altatuk. Oil reserve is a gift by Allah the Al Mighty, and will dried up or increase to HIS wishes, as HE said in the Quran..."KUN FAYA KUN". Is similar to a women's breast that produces milk, try to proving there's physical reserve in the breast, there's none. Its all HIS WISHES. I am not trying to convert the whole world to being Muslims, but read and analyse the Quran. You will soon realize all the secrets in it.

  21. Be it homosexual intercourse or adultery, if i were the judge, the first persons i'd punish are not the offenders but the so called 'four credible witnesses'! I mean to convict the adulterer the burden of proof is beyond any shadow of doubt which means the witnesses MUST saw the penetration of the penis into the vagina with their own eyes! In the name of Allah why would they wait for that to happen why they can immediately stop it from happen?? Islam is NOT a religion that punishes people but prevents evil from happening. To me adultery is only relevant on the basis of confession, that is the spirit of hudud.

  31. Many of non-muslim, and also some muslims here dont know that hudud, is the instruction of the only god, Allah s.w.t.
    If u think carefully, hudud, is the only way to educate human so they wont do things forbidden by Allah s.w.t. why must u be frightened if the forbidden things never crossed ur mind? Its not like u will get punished even if u dont commit the crime.
    Talk about humanity, there's a lot of inhuman act around the world such as the war created by US which resulting thousands of innocent people being killed, african people who starved to death while most of the country has high rates of obese cases. And many of other cases.Why dont u focus on that issues? We, muslims never ever disturbing the world peace, and other religions. So why must u come and interfere when there's a country wanted to apply islamic laws? Seriously people. Why?
