Muslim Model Sentenced to Six Lashes for Drinking Beer

Under Sharia Law, Muslims are not allowed to drink alcohol. The model Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno was caught drinking beer in a raid at a hotel nightclub last year. Sometime next week she will receive six lashes with a rattan cane. She will become the first woman in Malaysia to receive this punishment. She admitted the offense in religious court. She did not appeal the decision either. After she is caned in public, she will be released from jail "as soon as possible." She was also fined for drinking an alcoholic beverage. The prosecutor said that this punishment was meant to educate and not to punish. Most offenders are fined, but can be given a three-year prison term and a caning.

Sharia laws need to be stopped. Ridiculous... Caning a person for just drinking an alcoholic beverage is utterly ridiculous. Since most offenders are fined I believe that this model could have just been fined and not caned. I believe that the prosecutor wants to set an example, and its really sickening.

Such a loving religion.

A religion of peace.

BB and OPie,
The religion of peace certainly promotes violence? What's up with that?

Dr. Dave said...

Oh, it's just misunderstood. Caning is an act of love. Allah prefers it that way; he thinks strapping bombs around your waist and blowing yourself up is the ultimate expression of love.

We're just too ignorant to understand it all.

All of the Muslim Religion is a pox on humanity. Their cannings,chopping off hands, feet, heads, stonings, etc., but how come they don't have any laws against men who engage in sex with little girls and/or diddle little boys?

Seda said...

Aren't you glad you don't live there? I sure am!

Kinda reminds you of the Inquisition, doesn't it? Not something my liberal Muslim friends would appreciate, that's for sure.

Think I'll raise a glass to the 1st Amendment.

Dr. Dave,
Then the Muslims version of love is very twisted. I think I'll stay with the American version of love that doesn't promote blowing yourself up for the sake of pleasing and following God.

Most Rev. Gregori,
Unfortunately Muslims equate women to their property and don't have many rights, if at all. They believe men are superior and in their Muslim women submitting to whatever their husbands want. There should definitely be laws against men engaging in sex with little girls and boys but unfortunately there aren't.

Teresa said...

Seda,
I am too. You are more than welcome to raise a glass for me, too. Thank goodness for the 1st amendment.

BATS RIGHT, THROWS RIGHT *** said...

In American we just tax people as punishment for drinking beer.

Teresa said...

Bats Right, Throws right,
You got that right. And, its an extremely high tax.

If leaving a professional model with permanent scarring is not sadistic, then I don't know what is!

Nickie Goomba said...

She should have explained that her use was only to treat her glaucoma. It seems to work in MY neighborhood.

You think Sharia law is f'd up?

Do you know what the penalty is for Drunk Driving in Massachusetts?

Election to the Senate!

The question I have is ... "she who stays in this religion should know what's coming ... right?" I will never understand how so much violence can take place (everywhere) in the name of GOD.

Steve Harkonnen said...

I posted on this one myself. Disgusting, but she's got a trick up her sleeve by insisting the punishment be held publically. Good for her and I hope she somehow gets out from it. However, her cruel punishment will clearly demonstrate just how messed up this intolerant religion really is.

Teresa said...

Barking Spider,
That is definitely sadistic.

Teresa said...

Nickie,
Unfortunately, Muslims who believe in Sharia law are short- sighted and very strict.

Teresa said...

Bats Right, Throws Right,
That is F * ked up. Not much of a penalty at all.

Teresa said...

Woodsterman,
I don't understand that either.

Teresa said...

Steve,
Thank You for stopping by and commenting. I hope she does have a trick up her sleeve also. Your right, this being publicly displayed will reveal how intolerant this religion really is.
