Gang-Raped Woman Faces Additional Punishment Under Shariah Law?!

A young woman who was gang raped by eight Muslim men who accused her of extramarital sex may be publicly caned. Extramarital sex is a serious legal offense under the Islamic Shariah law code, a version of which is practiced in the strongly Muslim Indonesian province of Aceh.

The 25 year old woman, a widow, was raped by the eight men after being found with a married man in her own house. The eight men also beat the man, doused the pair in sewage, and handed them over to Islamic police.

The head of Shariah law in the district, Ibrahim Latief,  said his office has recommended that the man and the widow be publicly caned nine times.

The two were about to have sex at the time- still, Latief insisted that they violated Shariah by merely being alone  in the same room together. He also said they had admitted having sex earlier.

Indonesia is the world’s most populous Muslim nation, with 240 million people. Most of the nation follows secular law; but the province of Aceh, where the incident occurred, follows a version of Shariah.

Three of the eight men who committed the rape have been captured by police, and they too may face caning. The criminal charge of rape carries a maximum of fifteen years.

    Thank reason for the internet!!!….This has went on for CENTURIES and we are only now becoming immersed in it as a global community….I'm sure there are people who knew about it (or would have claimed to) forever but the fact is it is now really only becoming "public"…….So as people start seeing more and more of this I think those responsible will begin to be held accountable more and more….But it won't be soon enough!!!

    Soon with the Obozo administration allowing more towelheads into this country sharia law will take over and if you want to get rich put your money in cane stock.

    islamic muslims are totally intolerant, they plan their evil doings in their closed mosques by teaching multiculturalism and islamic supremacy while always screaming that they are victims. Democraps defend them like they are minorities from our American history, they just recently infiltrated our nation with nothing but murder on their minds. NO democrap, NO non-radical islamic muslim has ever said anything against their attacks, so they are all animals. America is near an irreversible position regarding our muslim population, but our built-in protections for minorities and minority ideas could be our Achilles Heel. The faster islam is wiped off this earth, the better for all human society, especially women. THIS “RELIGION OF PEACE” IS JUST GARBAGE!!) Is it a good thing to be afflicted with Islamophobia? Get the new book from Walid Shoebat, The Case FOR ISLAMOPHOBIA: Jihad by the Word; America’s Final Warning.
