Malaysian Women Caned for Having Sex

It does not get better than this.

Malaysia caned three Muslim women for having pre marital sex.

In case you are wondering, no Malaysia is not a country in the Middle East. It is in South East Asia, due north of Singapore.

Still no idea? What about Sepang F1? That is the place.

Malaysia whom have a majority of around 55% Muslim had a dual legal system, one practicing Syariah law, and another adopted from Common Law of the English.

And apparently, having pre-marital sex is a crime, punishable by imprisonment and caning, as well as fine.

And Malaysia, increasingly leaning towards conservative Islamic values, caned these three women, and they became the first women to be caned in Malaysia.

Well, this is a religious matter, and not that we can say much, but caning really had no place in the modern world.

Except maybe in BDSM community.

But, hey, caning for having sex?

Shouldn't everyone have the freedom to have sex? Why should anyone be forced down their throat to follow the religion?

And mind you, those born Muslim in Malaysia had no right to leave the religion, or so it seems.

I don't know what to say. You got any opinion?

And if it makes you feel better, the four men were also caned for the same offences.
