    Whipped in public just for daring to go on a date: Unmarried couples are flogged for violating Sharia law in Indonesia

    Pictures show a woman crying out as she is lashed with a cane at Al Furqon Mosque in Banda Aceh, Indonesia
    Separate images show a man standing as he receives the same brutal punishment for dating before marriage
    Three Acehnese couples were sentenced to public lashes for violating Sharia law in a brutal new crackdown

    This is the moment three young couples were savagely whipped in public - after they violated Sharia law by going on dates.
    Harrowing pictures show one woman crying out as she is repeatedly lashed with a cane at Al Furqon Mosque in the city of Banda Aceh, Indonesia.

    In total, three Acehnese couples were sentenced to receive public lashes for violating Sharia law in a brutal new crackdown in the region.
    Under the law men and women, who are not spouses, are not allowed to get too close due to the 'khalwat' offence - and punishment is by public caning.

    Aceh is the only province in the world's most populous Muslim-majority country that is allowed to implement Islamic Sharia law.
    In September, pictures emerged of a woman being caned after she was accused of having sex while unmarried.

    Gay sex, gambling and drinking alcohol are all punishable by caning in Aceh which began implementing Sharia law after being granted special autonomy in 2001, an effort by the central government in Jakarta to quell a long-running separatist insurgency.
    A flurry of new Islamic laws have been introduced in Aceh in recent years, drawing howls of protest from rights groups.
    Earlier this year, Banda Aceh banned women from entertainment venues after 11pm unless they are accompanied by a husband or male family member.
    Aceh district has also banned unmarried men and women from riding together on motorbikes.

    I'm against all laws based on religion. There were laws in the US that outlawed dancing. They even made a movie about it.

    They also have laws in some parts of the United States where people can't drink in public, or have to buy alcohol in only special stores, or only before 9pm, or not on Sundays. In some places, where the Christian extremists are powerful, they don't even allow bars to be open after 2 am!

    Meanwhile on the other side of the planet. CURRENTLY, there are countries in Africa where their consititution is base on Christianity (Thanks Pat Robertson) just like Sharia is to other countries. Their ANTI-HOMOSEXUAL law - http://www.refworld.org/pdfid/530c4bc64.pdf

    You get a citation and a fine, if the cop's cool enough you get a warning since he probably drinks to forget every night. Nobody's caning anyone.

    In fact, liquor stores started sticking bottles in paper bags so cops wouldn't have to arrest people for drinking outside. Everyone outside the politicians who passed it shut down that law once they realized how many people would have to be detained every single night. I don't think anybody's budging or compromising like that over there, like everyone's on a dare against each other. I don't like religious catfights but I think one thing America and the west gets is situational pragmatism.

    I feel like Islam is holding countries back from coming out of the Middle Ages

    Sharia law punishes Unmarried couple for having sex if :

    there are 4 reliable-credible witness with identical testimonies , which is almost impossible to prove.

    Dating is not treated this way and should not.

    Well that's what happens when you adopt a 7th century moral system that has no room for improvement because of its claim of being the 'last message from God'.

    I think sharia law should punish people like you from having unmarried or married sex.

    Somehow the Ottoman Empire did just fine and contributed much to science and culture during their height.

    You may disagree with him, but can you elaborate why posting an objective news article is 'idiotic'?

    Maybe your point is that there is so much violence and subjugation under the veil of Islam, that posting EVERY SINGLE article about these incidents is overwhelming?

    I do have a solution for that though. Let's just sticky an 'islamic vidlence' thread and keep it all in one neat thread? The subject matter is important whether you agree or not. We can't just brush away these injustices.

    Congrats, what does that have to do with people in Muslim majority countries being flogged in public for violating Sharia Law in this century.
