Seeing the Light

I made fun of one Member of Parliament’s (MP) call to implement Sharia law in Kuwait. The reason I quipped the call is the apparent transformation of the MP. But don’t people have the right to transform themselves? So he saw the light what’s wrong with that?

I must say the whole thing took me by surprise and I reacted the way I did. What if he saw a different light and reached personal enlightenment through kabbalah; would it be justified to call for the implementation of kabbalah?! I am happy for the MP and congratulate him on his sincere, I hope, personal growth. However he should keep his new convictions to himself and not deprive others of the same journey he took.

he can call for it
dosent mean its gna happen
i think u should always speak ur mind, and if he personally believes sharia law is the best then why not call for it?

I agree. Maybe he should start a blog rather than speaking his mind in parliament :p or introduce specific Islamic legislation rather than vaguely calling for implementation of Sharia.. but point taken.

In General..
It's the fuss they make that makes you suspicious of their true intention. It shows instability.
