SHARIA POLICE: Woman LASHED 100 times for standing near a man – could it happen here?
The sickening punishment was carried out by the nation’s Sharia police in front of a baying mob, including children, who watched on as the woman cried out in pain.
Crowds watch as the woman crouched on the floor and was whipped for her “crime” before she was rushed to hospital.
The 30-year-old woman, only known as Mazidah, collapsed from her injuries inflicted by the masked enforcer, known as Algojo. which means ‘the executioner’ in Indonesian.
In harrowing scenes, 100 lashes were doled out to the woman who had been found guilty of being in close proximity to a man who was not her husband by the Sharia courts.
She had allegedly broken the strict Sharia law in the province of Aceh in Indonesia – a popular sunny getaway for many Britons.
Another man was publicly lashed for indecent behaviour with a minor.
It is belived the punishment had to be stopped at times for each of the three people because of the screaming.
Sharia guards often dole out cruel punishment for violating Islamic law.
Sharia law is the legal system of Islam which is derived from both the Koran and the rulings of the religion’s scholars.
Islamic laws have been strengthened since the Aceh province struck a peace deal with the central government in 2005.
Banda Aceh has also banned women from entertainment venues after 11pm unless they are accompanied by a husband or male family member.
More than 90 per cent of Indonesians identify themselves as Muslim.
In May, the province saw the first public caning of two gay men under Sharia law.
Homosexuality, alcohol and gambling are listed as crimes under the barbaric Islamic laws.
There are thought to be around 100 unofficial Sharia Law courts operating throughout the UK, dispensing Islamic justice outside the remit of our own legal system.
Theresa May sparked concenrs she would be lenient towards the Islamic law before she became prime minister when she claimed many Britons “benefit a great deal” from Sharia Law.
