A woman has been condemned publicly after she was found guilty of having s*x before marriage and given 25 lashes of the cane.
The woman was beaten mercilessly in public
A woman has been disgraced and flogged mercilessly after being accused of having s*x before marriage, Dailymail reports.
The woman alongside the man she slept with were handed between 23 to 25 lashes as punishment under strict sharia law in place in Indonesia.
They were found guilty of having s*x outside of wedlock, which is forbidden under sharia.
The sentence was carried out in the city of Banda Aceh, at the tip of Indonesia’s Sumatra island, the only place in the Muslim-majority country which recognises sharia as part of its official legal system.
Sharia, meaning ‘the way’, lays out guidelines for Muslims on how to live their daily lives. Divided into four parts, the most controversial deals with criminal punishment, and proscribing stoning for adulterers and the removal of a hand for theft.
