Terengganu's Khalwat Troopers

Saw this report as below in the Straits Times Singapore and wondering what is going on up in Trengganu? Is there any privacy for any couples to go out anymore?

KUALA TERENGGANU - THE Terengganu PAS Youth wants to mobilise its vigilante squad to check on the rising cases of khalwat (close proximity) in the state.

Its chief, Mohd Nor Hamzah, said the squad comprised volunteers from the Youth Welfare Association - Perkerti, a non-governmental organisation under the party's purview.

'The squad can scrutinise areas deemed 'hotspots' where khalwat cases are rampant,' he said here on Tuesday. 'We have details on these areas.'

Mr Mohd Nor said the intention was not to nab the offender or for the squad to act as enforcement officers.

'We would merely advise Muslim couples that it's morally wrong to commit khalwat,' he said.
