In Malaysia penalties for converting from Islam

~from CWN

AsiaNews is reporting that in northern Malaysia, the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party has stiffened penalties for conversion from Islam.

In a country where Muslims account for more than half of the population, conversion is punished with a 5-year prison sentence and a $3,000 fine. A Malaysian Muslim who marries a non-Muslim and who converts the non-Muslim to Islam is rewarded with an apartment, a car, a one-time payment of $2,700, and a monthly stipend of $270.
