Indonesian woman whipped in public for having sex outside marriage'
Recent footage of an Indonesian woman being whipped across the back in public for ‘having sex outside marriage’ is making the rounds of the Internet. The video is disturbing to say the least.
The young woman is seen being taken to the public stage in Banda Aceh and forced down on to her knees by two guards, as reported by The Daily Mail.
A masked man is seen repeatedly whipping her across the back as she clenches her fists and appears to bite her veil while receiving her punishment.
Later in the video the woman is seen being carried out on a stretcher as she is not even in a state to walk after the punishment is over.
The punishment is met out to the woman in accordance with the Sharia law which is the legal system of Islam. The law is derived from both the Koran and the rulings of the religion's scholars.
Pictures also show crowds gathered to watch another two men also receive the same punishment for having sex outside of marriage.
