Brickbat: Painfully Ironic

|

An Indonesian man named Mukhlis was recently caned in public in Aceh province, receiving 28 strikes after being caught having sex with a married woman. Mukhlis (many Indonesians use just one name) is a member of the Aceh Ulema Council, which lobbied the provincial government to enact Islamic sharia law and advises it in implementing that law. That law mandates public caning for adultery.
