Sad! 60-Years-Old Christian Flogged In Indonesia Over Sales Of Alcohol

Shocking to hear this. An elderly Christian woman has been caned in Indonesia over doing business of selling alcohol. This is the first time a Sharia law punishment has been meted out to a non-Muslim.


The 60-year-old, who was convicted of selling alcohol, was whipped nearly 30 times with a attan cane, before a crowd of hundreds, in Aceh province on Tuesday, according to reports.

likewise, a couple who had been found guilty of adultery received 100 lashes of cane at the same time.

Aceh is the only province in Indonesia that applies Sharia law, with public canings, often in front of huge crowds, commonplace.

Under Aceh's strict Islamic code, introduced after it was granted special autonomy from Jakarta in 2001, corporal punishment is imposed on adulterers, gays, drinkers and even those who speak to unmarried members of the opposite.
