I contradict your opinion. Islam has all the Laws. But either they are twisted and distorted to serve people's vested interests, or they are not carried out because of other factors.

I hate it when people do wrong things because its their culture or tradition. I hate it when people don't stand up for what is right when something wrong is being done, they see it, they hear it, yet they stand deaf and mute merely because of what others would think, how other community members would look down upon them, how they will be spat upon by their family,friends,neighbors, and community.

These things happen amongst the ignorant people of any society. It happens amongst the disadvantaged strata of many societies. And it happens amongst the uneducated, sometimes, feudal tribal communities of some societies. Unfortunately, when it happens amongst the people where the majority are Muslims (like in South East Asia, or the Middle East), Islam suddenly becomes the culprit for all these heinous atrocities perpetrated by evil people with evil minds holding evil designs.

May God punish all those that make others suffer so. God will preserve Islam nevertheless, for it is not the fault of religion, but rather the fault of man who stains religion once it falls into his lap by misusing it to his own advantages.
