Ah yes, more of sharia’s empowerment of women that Islamic supremacists and the leftwing chattel herald and champion.
I hope sharia’s leftwing lapdogs are so enamored by Islamic law that they actually have to live under it. Over there, that is, inshallah.
SEVERAL unmarried couples and two women were publicly caned in front of an enthusiastic audience in Indonesia on Friday for violating Islamic law. In a devoutly Muslim province in Muslim-majority Indonesia – two women accused of prostitution were caned 11 times each.
Malaysia: Couples and ‘prostitutes’ publicly whipped in front of Indonesian mosque for breaking Islamic law. Crowd cheers.

It could be the last time the deeply conservative Muslim province Aceh allows the lashings to happen in public
By Peggy Jones, The Sun, April 18, 2018:
SEVERAL unmarried couples and two women were publicly caned in front of an enthusiastic audience in Indonesia on Friday for violating Islamic law.
In Aceh – a deeply conservative province in Muslim-majority Indonesia – two women accused of prostitution were caned 11 times each.
Three unmarried couples accused of “flirtatious behaviour” also received between 11 and 22 strokes.
Shariah police wanted to convict the couples of “zina” – unlawful sexual intercourse that includes sex outside marriage and adultery – which would have resulted in a greater number of lashes, but they lacked enough witnesses.One of the two women convicted of prostitution held up her hands after the fifth lash to signal that the pain was too intense.
After a quick break she was given a drink and painfully lashed another six times.
Members of the crowd, which included tourists from Malaysia, cheered enthusiastically at each blow and recorded the punishment with their smartphones.
Aceh is the only part of Indonesia to enforce Sharia law.
It received international media attention last year when two men accused of practising gay sex were caned before large crowds and images appeared on social media.
The province’s actions were condemned by many and the governor of Aceh announced earlier this month that punishments would be moved indoors.
After this display last week, canings will likely only happen in prisons where the public can’t see them.
Many residents are opposed to hiding them, believing it will reduce the deterrent and cause more people to violate Shariah law.
Thousands held signs and protested against the idea outside the Banda Aceh mayor’s office on Thursday.
Human Rights Watch dismissed the country’s calls that the whipping is “cosmetic”.
They said: “Caning remains a form of torture – whether it is done in public or not.”
