Islamic tolerance alert from "modern, progressive" Malaysia

An "ethnic Chinese" man was buried as a Muslim despite opposition from his immediate family. The ""ethnic Chinese" person, incidentally happened to be Buddhist. The Malay Mohammedan Jihadis would not dare take such liberties with practitioners of other binary cults, for obvious reasons. Hindus and Buddhists are an eternal soft target to selectively target for imposition of the most obnoxious Sharia injunctions precisely due to their intrinsic liberalism. Will all those "Neo-Buddhists" of the Ambedkarite persuasion take note?

"The New York Times | August 24, 2006": Once Muslim, Now Christian and Caught in the Courts
By JANE PERLEZ
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Aug. 19 — From the scant personal details that can be pieced together about Lina Joy, she converted from Islam to Christianity eight years ago and since then has endured extraordinary hurdles in her desire to marry the man in her life.
Her name is a household word in this majority Muslim country. But she is now in hiding after death threats from Islamic extremists, who accuse her of being an apostate.”

The point seems to be that when "practitioners of other binary cults" are affected, there is a protest from the West (New York, in this case). But when Hindus are hit, there is none.
