"KUALA LUMPUR: The government of Malaysia's resort island of Penang proposed Thursday stiffer penalties, including caning, for Muslims for criminal offenses under proposed amendments to religious laws.

Mohd Shariff Omar, the island's State Religious Affairs Committee chairman, said the amendments would make the laws more comprehensive to suit the changing times. "The law will apply to all Muslims, regardless of whether they are locals or from Bangladesh, Pakistan or Indonesia, he said.

The foreigners are mostly workers employed in Malaysia's construction, plantation and manufacturing businesses. He said caning would be imposed for criminal offenses such as prostitution, incest, adultery, pimping and homosexual activities.
