Sharia Law: Woman Collapse While On Punishment for Infidelity in Indonesia.
Opinion diverse as one woman who is not named or properly identified reportedly collapsed during her punishment for sleeping with another man who is not her husband.
According to the report gathered, the incident happened in the city of Banda Aceh in Indonesia where the yet- to- be- identified woman was flogged. She collapsed in front of the crowd as a result of the injuries she sustained from the flogging.
The number of lashes she was supposed to receive was not stated but she collapsed at the point she received the 17th stroke. Meanwhile, her partner (the man) with whom she committed the act was standing directly opposite her during the punishment. It is not clear whether he was punished too or was exempted from the public punishment. But by standard, he ought to be punished too by the Algojo, the officials who normally carry out the beating.
This is not the first time the city of Aceh in Indonesia will be carrying out this kind of public punishment of women found in the company of men or having extra-marital affairs with them without proper marriage.
In 2018, a similar incident occurred in the same Aceh town where a couple who were about to wed were publicly caned for holding hands in public before their marriage. The incident generated a lot of controversies as some people condemned the flogging of the couple.
Those that condemned it said the pair did not have s3x together and that they were just holding hands which is more like bonding together in advance before they will officially live as a couple.
On the other hand, those supporting the canning said they were not supposed to be seen together at all until they were officially married. What is the rush of holding hands in public if you are still going to hold more than hands in private, they asked.
Whichever the case, the city of Aceh in Indonesia is not bothered. The officials vow to uphold the sharia law to its fullest in the state.
