3 women got caned for having sex with their boyfriends.
In Malaysia, according to the religion of Islam, that is a HUGE sin.
That is why, most of us here are virgins before we got married.
Don’t believe me? Just ask me whether I am still a virgin or not.
(Yes, I am)
Lying by the way is not punishable by the stroke of the rattan so that is why I can get away with it easily.
Ok, enough digressing.
Anyway the caning of this WILLING women got the whole international community raise their arms in the air and shouted “FOUL!”…
Even CNN picked this news up:
3 Women Caned in Malaysia For Adultery
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (CNN) — For the first time, Malaysian authorities have caned three Muslim women under Islamic law for acts of adultery, the Malaysian national news agency Bernama said.
Home Minister Hishamuddin Hussein announced the canings Wednesday, saying the penalty was carried out February 9 at a women’s prison near Kuala Lumpur.
The canings — a punishment that persists across Malaysian society since the British colonial era of the 19th century — have been denounced by one Amnesty International official, who says “caning is tantamount to torture.”
But Hishamuddin said the punishment was carried out “to educate and make the offenders realize their mistakes and to return to the right path.”
Blah blah blah.. yada yada yada
Lance Lattig, a researcher on Malaysia for the human rights group Amnesty International, told CNN that the vast majority of canings are applied to illegal immigrants by civil courts, but the latest examples indicate that sharia courts happen to be picking up on the practice.
“It’s not Muslims on the march,” he said. “It’s the tip of the iceberg of the bigger problem.”
No matter who does it, he says, the group considers caning to be “cruel, inhumane and degrading.”
Aiyah… if caning is cruel, may I offer a solution?
There is this method called SPANKING.
It will achieve the same effect for the receiver as a caning would do.
Plus, it would be good exercise for the spanker too. Heck, I also want to be one.
Although spanking is a much, much older form of punishment than caning, I believe this archaic but effective form of punishment will be seen as having more finesse and less cruel to the recipients.
I guess society as a whole will benefit with this new ruling. Enough with the caning. We need to save rattan trees too. Use bare hands instead. This will save our mother nature and cure arthritis too.
Down With Caning,
Bottoms Up For Spanking!
