If there’s one thing we’ve learned about countries that have allowed large immigrant populations from Islamic nations to enter their borders, it’s that once these “political refugees” and asylum seekers get a foothold, they actively work to instill the laws of Sharia rather than assimilating to the system of laws in their respective newfound homes. We’ve seen these non-governmental Islamic courts pop up in France and Britain, and their is even a push in some American towns to implement Sharia-style councils in Muslim immigrant communities.
The woman along with the man she was accused of having sex with, faced the brutal punishment as having sex outside of wedlock is against strict Sharia law.Pictures show how the woman was forced to kneel on the ground on the public stage in front of a mosque in Indonesia’s Aceh province.Such punishments are quite common in some Muslim countries – often handed down for very minor reasons. In some places women can be lashed for being in public without a male guardian.But protests against these countries are rare and when they do take place, there are far fewer demonstrators than the millions who marched against Donald Trump last month.

The head of a powerful Islamic council is refusing to back down from a proposal that make it legal for husbands to “lightly beat” their wives in Pakistan, despite ridicule and revulsion including calls that maybe the clerics should stand for their own gentle smack down.Speaking to reporters, the chairman of the Council of Islamic Ideology, Muhammad Kahn Sherani, said a “light beating” should be a last resort.“If you want her to mend her ways, you should first advise her. … If she refuses, stop talking to her … stop sharing a bed with her, and if things do not change, get a bit strict,” Sherani said, according to Pakistan’s Express-Tribune newspaper.If all else fails, he added, “hit her with light things like handkerchief, a hat or a turban, but do not hit her on the face or private parts.”
