Aceh in Indonesia, the muslims have their own rules about everything. So, when two men revealed to be gay the punishment they got was 83 beatings in front of audience that loved it and took hundreds of pictures!
Sharia laws in Aceh, Indonesia
The muslims is tighten their power every month it seems. Even though it’s only Aceh in Indonesia that got Sharia laws. Indonesia is punishing Chrisitians a lot. The religious conflict in this 230 million country is getting worse and worse.
Two men have been caned 83 times each in the Indonesian province of Aceh after being caught having sex.
The men stood on stage in white gowns praying while a team of hooded men lashed their backs with a cane.
Gay sex is not illegal in most of Indonesia but it is in Aceh, the only province which exercises Islamic law.
It is the first time gay men have been caned under Sharia law in the province.
A governor got sentenced to prison in a blasphemy case that was outside of Aceh also lately!
Jakarta’s Christian governor was sentenced to two years in jail for blasphemy against Islam, a harsher than expected ruling in a trial that was seen as a test of religious tolerance in Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim-majority nation.
On Saturday 20th of May, there was a huge demonstration in Oslo and other places against his sentenced to prison. So it seems like Indonesians are against this, but something is not working as it should in Indonesia. When Muslims do bad things against other religions, nothing happens.
The worst thing in this case is that the audience loved it. Like in Game Of Thrones the tv series. Except that now the technology gives the oportunity to bring the memories home. I wonder about all of the Indonesians that took the images of the gays getting beaten. Is there a party later at this peoples houses?
If you are a nautral country regarding religion. Then release this man and wake up. If people love the same sex, then they should be allowed to do so. If you don’t like it, then just ignore it. Don’t make a scene of it, like this! This is not how people should behave in 2017!
