    Better to steal than borrow from loan sharks

    PETALING JAYA: Those in financial difficulties are better off stealing than borrowing from loan sharks (Ah Long), Islamic consumers association Persatuan Pengguna Islam Malaysia (PPIM) said today.

    This was not encouragement to steal, said PPIM chief activist Nadzim Johan, but merely to show that these illegal moneylenders must be avoided at all costs.

    Nadzim said it was better to steal than to borrow from loan sharks because failure to repay them had serious consequences on the lives and safety of the borrowers and their families.

    “We hope consumers will not be involved with Ah Long, because it will have lasting consequences. Find another way. Stealing is possible;
    borrowing from the banks can be hard, and there is no other institution willing to help.

    “What else can you do when your electricity is cut, your car is to be repossessed and you want to feed your children?

    “Stealing is the last resort. Borrow from your family members if you have no choice, or steal. It’s better than borrowing from the Ah Long,” Nadzim told FMT.

    I can't believe Islam condones stealing, whatever the circumstances. Doh!

    Are these Muslims trying to preempt Hudud by saying that stealing is not a punishable crime? Doh!
