Zeal of a Convert


Kamariah Ali was a member of the Sky Kingdom commune, which stressed harmony between religions. Unfortunately, members of some religions aren't much interested in harmony. The government of Malaysia demolished the commune in 2005, accusing members of being apostates from Islam. Malaysian law bars Muslims from converting to other religions. Now, Kamariah Ali, who was arrested when the commune was destroyed, has been sentenced by a shariah court to two years in jail for refusing to return to Islam.
