Allah's Wrath Visits Terengganu

Believe it or not but the public caning of two supposed lesbians in Terengganu, Malaysia had brought about Allah’s wrath! According to some folks, that is. 

If you've been hiding underneath a coconut shell all this while, please read the blog post @

Anyway, in Kuala Terengganu and the neighboring areas, a freak storm lasting just five minutes had damaged nearly 600 houses, wrecked vehicles and uprooted dozens of trees here Monday – the very same day the women were flogged (New Straits Times, September 04, 2018). 

Of course, for PAS who are in control of the state government, they have said the sentence to whip the young women will, in fact, invite Allah’s blessings! 

I guess PAS’ perspective on ‘blessing’ differs from the rest of us because to them, the suffering of others is a blessing. And when pain has been inflicted – that itself, is an appropriate penance for sins. They don't believe in mercy. And/or compassion.
