Default Indonesian woman caned after adultery conviction in Aceh sharia court

ABC Linky

Quote:
Just months after two gay men were publicly caned in the Indonesian province of Aceh, a woman has received hospital treatment after receiving 100 lashes.

The 30-year-old woman, Mazidah, who goes by one name, had received the caning after being found guilty of adultery by a sharia court.

She had been charged with being in a private place in the presence of a man she was not married to.

The 34-year-old male also received 100 lashes, but did not require hospitalisation.

Presented without further comment.

'According to reports by the local press, and an account given to the ABC by a witness, at times the caning had to be stopped for each of the three offenders because they were screaming in agony. '


How the fuck can people do that to each other and how the fuck can people come to watch? This shit belongs in ancient history. Fuck, They're our neighbours, why doesn't Australia do some thing? The UN? Law is no excuse.

They watch because the bigger the taboo the greater the titillation for them. It is a mature culture where people don't really care what others do apart from child exploitation.

I don't know about that last part. In some muslim countries young girls are exploited by being married off. Kind of like legal child sex slavery, with the dangers of pregnancy to boot. Not sure of Indonesian laws though. It's a bit scary as some parts are becoming more and more fundamental, so illegal child marriages may happen under the nose of the government (or with full knowledge and money under the table..)

It would depend on how you define a "mature culture" clearly they are few and far between.

Child exploitation is extremely common in Indonesia. I have seen it.

In my experience Indonesians are gentle and tolerant people, who unfortunately tend to be unquestioning in their faith in religion. These sort of incidents are more about the ability of religion to override basic human decency.

I think we often make the mistake of looking at Indonesia as a homogenous society, when in reality it is really very multi-ethnic and multi-religious. Aceh is only a small part of the country where the Islamic nutters have obtained power, however even in North Sumatra (where Aceh is located) there are areas where Christians are in outright majority. Indonesia still subscribes to its founding philosophy of Pancasila, which has allowed for relatively harmonious conditions for its minorities.

Indonesia's real challenge will be how they stem the tide to conservative Islam, which is counter to the traditional local interpretations. The Saudis are very active in Indonesia and their investment is starting to pay dividends.

Apparently child marriage is rampant across Indonesia. According to GIRLS NOT BRIDES-


* According to UNICEF’s State of the World’s Children 2016.
An estimated one in every seven girls in Indonesia is married before the age of 18 [1]. However, recent studies suggest that child marriage rates may have been underestimated, with rates as high as 35% in some regions [2].
Indonesia is among the ten countries with the highest absolute numbers of child brides: 1,408,000 women aged 20 to 24 were married before the age of 18


Sorry for the continued derail..
