Did they film it?

Two women found guilty of attempting to have sex have been caned in Malaysia’s conservative north-eastern state of Terengganu, in the first punishment of its kind.

The two women, aged 22 and 32, were caned six times each in the Terengganu sharia high court just after 10am, after the sentence was read out.

Specialist market and all that but still…..

  1. The ‘conservative’ north-eastern state. What do they think of Theresa May?

    Perhaps they meant ‘conservative’ in some other way. What religion is prevalent in Malaysia? Search the article, you won’t find it. Half way down the journalist mumbles something about “Sharia enforcement officers” – slap on the wrist for the writer there.

    We’ve gone from MONA to RONA – Religions of no appearance.

  2. Film what, the act or the punishment?

    Either way, seems a bit harsh for a, presumably failed, attempt. In this country they would be sent for training.

  3. Is Rocco on the job?

    Also strange that they’ll have bags on their heads but their naked arse is ok if its being hit.

  4. According to the article

    ‘The two women, aged 22 and 32, were caned six times each in the Terengganu’

    First time I’ve heard it called that…

    Before all the outrage: is such an act actually against the law there?

    If so, the outrage must be directed at the law, not the absolutely correct treatment of the evildoers.

    But one does rather expect this sort of nonsense in shitholes, no? Especially shitholes under the influence of medieval superstitions.

    One expects it everywhere. Different places just have different Medieval superstitions.

    So you would expect it in Brompton, or Minehead, or Builth Wells?

    There’s a photo on the Been website – fully clothed.

    I thought that the person doing the whipping was supposed to hold a copy of the Koran in the armpit of the arm holding the whip but it doesn’t look like it in the photo.
