These 2 gay men aged 27 and 29, got punished by a team of five enforcers wearing robes and hoods took turns to flog the men.
according to reports, these gay men were arrested in November after residents became suspicious and reported them to Islamic religious police.
according to Heru Triwijanarko, Aceh’s acting Sharia police chief, Police later broke into their rented room where they were caught in the act doing the thing.
while people gather and watch these men being punished, it appears that the mother of one of these men fainted upon seeing her son being punished.
Mail Online reports state that each of these men was flogged 77 times, three lashes less than their original sentence because they had already served three months in prison.
public order official Heru Triwijanarko told AFP that; ‘Islamic sharia enforcement is final, no matter who it is, and even visitors must respect local norms’.
the official added that ‘several locations for homosexual practice’ in the region are ‘difficult to reveal’ as he calls on the public to help identify and reports people who are into such acts that break Sharia.
