Sharia Indonesia: Woman caned in public for being “in close proximity” to boyfriend

“Young woman is caned in public as punishment under Sharia law for being ‘in close proximity’ to her boyfriend in Indonesia,” by Ross Ibbetson, Mailonline, October 29, 2018 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

The 21-year-old was whipped along with her boyfriend before crowds for being caught in ‘close proximity’ to each other.

The archaic public humiliation took place today in the city of Banda Aceh where Sharia law is strictly observed and enforced.

People are flogged as many as 200 times for a range of perceived crimes such as gambling, drinking alcohol, gay sex or any non-marital relationship.

The barbaric practice was ramped up in 2001 by the government in Jakarta to bolster their authority as separatists sought to gain power.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
