New Laws For Women In Malaysia: Malaysia has implemented new laws to ban women earlier this month. According to this, women of Terengganu state have been banned from wearing men’s clothes. Here women cannot conceive without getting married. This state has also declared ‘witchcraft’ illegal. After the implementation of this law in Malaysia, there is a lot of anger among human rights activists in South-East Asia.
In the state of Terengganu, this law has been passed by the assembly. As a punitive action against whoever breaks this law, a rule has been made to pay a fine of Rs 93,000. Apart from this, there has also been talk of going to jail for three years.

14 rights groups, including the All Women Action Society, said these laws violate the right to freedom of expression, equality and non-discrimination. Terengganu state is governed by Islam Se-Malaysia, a party focused on Islamic fundamentalism. Neighboring country Indonesia had implemented a similar law. Now Malaysia has also followed that law.
