Indonesia Sharia


Brutal. This is what sharia boils down to, the beating into the minds of the people the fear of the state and religious authority. Yes there is the private individual ritual sharia hocus pocus Muslims carry out in their daily, individual lives and families, but that is overshadowed by the state’s rod of fear.

Medieval justice… in the 21st Century: Woman caned in front of a baying mob for having an affair


Last updated at 2:29 PM on 9th April 2011

A woman flinches as she is about to be repeatedly caned for having an extramarital affair.

Irdayanti Mukhtar, 34, received nine lashes by Sharia Police for having a relationship with another man, even though she is said to be in the process of divorcing her husband.

The harsh punishment was meted out in front of a crowd of 200 people outside the Al Munawwarah Mosque in Jantho, Indonesia.

The jeering crowd recorded the brutal beating on their mobile phones and camcorders and shouted for more beatings in the strict Muslim city.

Mukhtar had been sentenced to the punishment the previous day by a Sharia court where prosecutors said that she was guilty of being in ‘close proximity’ to another man.

Under Sharia law the offence carries a maximum beating of nine strokes with a cane or a minimum of three.

  1. I suppose this is just an example of a few “hijacking a great religion.” That refrain and others are so old. Like some 14-hundred years old. Religion of peace?!!

    When a woman who had committed adultery was about to be stoned, Jesus said ‘he who is without sin cast the first stone.’ He forgave her. He showed her love. He would have torn that whip from the hand that man, and that man upon looking into the eyes of Jesus would have fallen to his knees.

    There is no truth to be found in Islam. Period.

    1. I agree with you Sojourner56, the character of Mohamed is the antithesis of Jesus’ life. There is no truth in Islam.

  2. Why men are not punished in such ways…they are cowards who do not have strenght to condem such evil practices which are shadowed by religion…

    Is allah whom they praise so cruel, dosn’t he has forgivness in his heart..

    All such molvis will have to suffer pains when god will question them..
