PETALING JAYA: A married Muslim woman was caught naked with her non-Muslim lover in a hotel room by officers of the Terengganu Religious Affairs Department (JHEAT) early today.
English daily The Star, quoted a news report from Metro, that the distraught husband called the state religious authority after spotting his wife and a man enter the premises of a hotel. He was suspicious that the two were having an affair.
Acting on the call, JHEAT officers raided the hotel in Kuala Nerus at 7.35am and found the two naked inside one of the rooms.
Speaking to officers after the raid, the woman claimed she had fallen in love with the man she was with as he had helped her expand her business.
Commenting on the incident, JHEAT commissioner Wan Mohd Wan Ibrahim said, “Although he (the woman’s husband) was disappointed and upset, he did not take action by himself but called the religious authorities instead.”
The married woman and her lover were brought to the JHEAT office and will be investigated under Section 29 of the Terengganu Syariah Criminal Offences (Takzir) Enactment 2001. – FMT
