Mukhils being flogged in public

An Indonesian public service man (Mukhlis) who helped in the recent drafting of strict adultery laws has been a victim of the law and publicly caned 28 strokes after being caught having an affair with a married woman. The married woman was caned 23 times. Unfortunately for him, he is from Aceh region, the only place in Indonesia with strict Islamic Sharia law. Mukhlis is also an Islamic religious leader and the first religious leader to be a victim since Sharia law in Indonesia.
