Amid the pitiless heat and humidity of the afternoon, a slight young woman from the Indonesian province of Aceh screams in agony as she is thrashed repeatedly with a cane. Her face becomes a mask of pain and humiliation until she collapses forward on to the ground, clutching pitiably at her shoulder. Her 'crime' was to have been found in the company of a fellow undergraduate who was a man but was not a relation. Now, a cheering crowd of hundreds - including many women - watches her punishment, meted out by a huge hooded man. Some of the onlookers can be seen straining to capture the beating and humiliation on their smartphone cameras.... and now we want to ask .....What if a guy who is found in the company of a fellow student who is a woman but is not a relation ... Will he be caned?(mailonline)
would this kind of law bind citizens together or separate them?
