Brunei is introducing strict new Islamic laws that make anal sex and adultery offences punishable by stoning to death.

The new measures, that come into force on Wednesday, also cover a range of other crimes including punishment for theft by amputation.

The move has sparked international condemnation.
Brunei’s gay community has expressed shock and fear at the “medieval punishments”.

“You wake up and realise that your neighbours, your family or even that nice old lady that sells prawn fritters by the side of the road doesn’t think you’re human, or is okay with stoning,” one Bruneian gay man, who did not want to be identified, told the BBC.

The sultan of the small south-east Asian nation on Wednesday called for “stronger” Islamic teachings.

  3. US is interfering again! That’s their law! Hey US, mind your own business. Let Brunei be peaceful! Respect their law. I’m from the Philippines and I agree to this. I hope we have this in our country too. HIV in our country is spreading so fast because of gay sex.

  4. BIJBEL:
    drie-eenheid mensen personen theisten goden → zondaars hebben mensenrechten
    KORAN
    ̶d̶r̶i̶e̶-̶e̶e̶n̶h̶e̶i̶d̶ moslims primaten atheisten goddelozen → ̶z̶o̶n̶d̶a̶a̶r̶s̶ hebben homorechten

  5. I don’t know why the wast others to follow their laws. Every country has the right to choose what their culture suits them. After all Democracy means majority will imposed on minorities but Burnie is a Kingdom, not a Democracy.

  6. Oil in Brunei: EXISTS
    USA: time to smoke a big bucket of 100% freedom.
    Brunei: No pls we r happy-
    USA: MuRiCa HElL yEa
    (10 years later)
    USA: K u have been liberated plus there's no more oil so im leaving.
    Brunei: 🖕

  7. U are missing a key part of this. The two couples involved in the sex have to be caught by around 4-5 witnesses in order for them to be sentenced. And if you think about it logically, how are 4-5 witnesses going to catch you having sex? I think this law is only trying to scare people.

  8. FYI..its been almost a month now and not a single person in Brunei is stoned.

    We Bruneians ourself didnt like to be one of the LGBT (it is disgusting) because we want to have kids for the future of our nation. (Being sarcastic so dont overreact)

    #BruneiUnited

  9. This rarely happens in reality ,In Islam, no one can punish you if you look homosexual , not even if you kissed a man on the street or hugging him , They should watch the whole process ,like This applies only If four people saw you enter your d… in his a… At this moment only , and shoud 4 trusted people seen this not 3 or less, and this will only happen if you do it in public, Therefore, this punishment is rarely applied ,This kind of punishment happens because you are pushing people to do something wrong ,In our religion we say that if you want to do something wrong, you have to keep it for yourself , In this case the punishment is beating for the unmarried ,and for the married, the punishment is different because they committed the crime of treason in addition to the illegal relationship, In most cases, these punishments are invalidated , Because their purpose is deterrence

  10. Sultan is just being obedience to the real teaching of Islam and said if we follow the wishes of the WEST, there will be no progress on the people in the country . I agreed.I have studied the religion and read the Koran, the right of ALLAH MUST be above the human right. I STRONGLY feel that sharia is the best for the country to grow.I don't want my kids to become gay. In UK parents are worried of the possibility of their kids turn to become gay.It is a country where parenting is worrying so cannot be called a happy place to raise children, so we will not follow the Western way .

  11. Westerners are always so involved in our cases. You never see Muslims or middle easterns debating about the west or writing negative comments. Yet you see the westerners here more than Muslims themselves. If you're having this fancy life of yours why do you have to come here to throw your toxic words? Respectful westerners are welcome tho. Welcome even to our homes. But the rude ones need to shut up and not say anything, no one wants to be bothered by them.

  12. The Western World screams out loud for Gays in the name of 'freedom' and 'human rights' when the Muslim countries ban Homosexuality, but hypocritically at the same time they ban and forcefully remove the modest dress of hundreds of thousands of Muslim women living in Western countries violating their basic freedoms.

    Dear Western world, before asking the Muslims to treat Gays better, treat Muslim women in your countries with dignity and respect first.

  13. Brunei has promoted the Malay, Islam and Monanchy (MIB) principal of governing the country long before the enforcement of Syariah law. Everyone is expected to uphold it and conform to it. No one dares to voice an opinion or do anything against MIB. There's no freedom for dissent. If you are born there and working there, you think only of your own survival. No choice but toe the line.
