Boy & Girl Caned

Apr 21st, 2007, in News, by

An amorous young couple in Aceh are given the lash.

Two romancing university students, a boy, Nuriadin bin Ismail (22), and a girl, Devita Citra Putri binti Ismail (21), were caught together in a boarding house room on 6th February 2007, subject to a citizens’ arrest by local people, and then handed over to the religious police, Wilayatul Hisbah, and they were then charged with unlawful proximity between an unmarried male and female.

They were later tried and found guilty of violating article 22 of Qanun (sharia law) No.14/2003 concerning sexual crimes.

On 20th April 2007 the two young people were each given four strokes of a rattan cane in the grounds of the Tungkop mosque in the Darussalam district of Aceh Besar regency, after Friday afternoon prayers had been performed. Devita cried as she was caned while the crowd cheered as each stroke landed on her back.

    Cuku, I never beg, especially not for your kind of man. I manage ok to get any man I want thanks. If I was your 5th wife though, I’d make sure you’re dead, or paralyse, or just make your life very, very hard. Your comments are degrading towards women, as if they were property with no value at all. You better watch your daughters, I hope God help them, because it seems to me, their father doesn’t even care what to become of them, their value or their wellbeing.

  2. Colson says:

    Cukurungan: I can reassure you; I’ve no intention at all of starting another religion. On the contrary; I would rather like people to live in peace together and to devote their time to the practical welfare of their societies.

    And as for your opinion on women. Let’s put it this way: because you seem to think the value of an opinion has something to do with the number of people that share it, you should keep in mind that about 5 billion men and women disagree with your beliefs.

    Dymal Said:

    For me this is one main reason why people in those countries are still lagged behind the others.

    Cukurungan:
    We are still lagging behind the others because our society of continuing of the betrayal to God Law (Principal of Justice) , see how our justice system, our way of doing business and our society attitude toward people.

    We have so many fake stuff, fake doctors, fake license, fake certificate, fake medicine you can list easily as much as you want.

    We killed the chickens thieves and burning pickpocket but let big criminal and BLBI thieves walked away even sometimes honored them as Hero and even assigned them becomes members of fxxking Team Indonesia Vision 2050.
    We learned religion to manipulate dumb people. Our leaders and Ulama always said “we have to promote simple life style ” but theirself riding fancy car and stay in luxury house.

    UUD 45 clearly said all the wealth come from the earth exploration is belonging to state and to be used for the welfare of the countrymen. But our parliament and our government determined salary by themselves as much as they wanted by stealing those wealth and let our beloved brother and sister laborers to becomes slave in their own country.

    We never fly higher unless we able to reduce our burden and to increase our power but the funny thing, we are still in big fighting to determine which is our burden and which is our power at least in the small scale like in this blog.

    Cuk, your comments have wandered away from the original posting which was:

    Two romancing university students, a boy, Nuriadin bin Ismail (22), and a girl, Devita Citra Putri binti Ismail (21), were caught together in a boarding house room on 6th February 2007, subject to a citizens’ arrest by local people, and then handed over to the religious police, Wilayatul Hisbah, and they were then charged with unlawful proximity between an unmarried male and female.

    You said earlier that God said

    1) The adultery is strongly prohibited because it is clearly violated other people dignity.
    2) If you already committed adultery keep it as your secret and ask forgiveness and don’t repeat again.
    3) Don’t accuse anyone of committing the adultery unless you’re able to bring 4 credible men as your witnesses, once you failed to do so, you will be subject to caning and your witnesses won’t be accepted until you died.
    4) Don’t spy on other people house.
    5) Caning shall be carried out on the public display for anyone who deliberately disclosed and exhibited their adultery in public display.

    I have some questions for you based on the above;

    The young couple were charged with “unlawful proximity between an unmarried male and female” Where is this stipulated as a crime by Allah in Al Quran?

    Who’s dignity has been violated here?

    If Adultery which is as you say a serious crime is forgivable by Allah, if it is kept secret, why were this couple publicly flogged for being in close proximity?

    Was anybody charged with spying on the couple?

    Was their close proximity as serious as a public dislplay of adultery?

    Where were the credible witnesses? Were they part of the uncivilised mob who were enjoying the public display of humiliation?

    Whilst I respect your defence of Islam, it seems to me that you don’t really understand Islam. Why have you never publicly condemned these people (Wilayatul Hisbah) and the public mob involved, who are obviously not following true Islamic values?

    Peace

    Khafi:
    Who’s dignity has been violated here?

    Cukurungan :
    Is the Girls and Boy has Mother and Father? Let assume your daughter committed adultery, if you think, this isn’t violeted your dignity, I appraise you Sir.
    So far, I know even the evil doesn’t want their daughter be raped.

    Khafi :
    Was anybody charged with spying on the couple?

    Cukurungan :

    Don’t ask me, I haven’t there yet.

    Khafi:
    Whilst I respect your defence of Islam, it seems to me that you don’t really understand Islam.

    Cukurungan:
    I have to admitted that no one’s understand ISLAM better than you since sahabat time until today

    Khafi :
    Why have you never publicly condemned these people (Wilayatul Hisbah) and the public mob involved, who are obviously not following true Islamic values?

    Cukurungan :
    I don’t like throw salt to the sea but it doesn’t mean I never done that and see my response to Colson… I already said that the current implementation Sharia in Aceh is faraway from the basic principal GOD LAW.

  6. Mohammed Khafi says:

    Cuk,

    The original article was not about adultery, it was about “unlawful proximity between an unmarried male and female” . no suggestion of adultery, or rape, or even sex.
    I will ask again, where does Allah say that an unmarried couple cannot be alone together in a relationship? And just what the hell is “unlawful proximity between an unmarried male and female”? Is it just another one of those very vague phrases that the supporters of Hadith spew out, and has no real defining meaning?

    Once again as your like minded brothers and sisters have a habit of doing, you have avoided answering the core of the questions asked of you, you have tried to divert attention away from you inability to answer, is that because you don’t want to face the truth, or you just don’t have any answers which can stand up to reasoned thought?

    What is your understanding of Gods’s Law, Cuk? What do you understand Sharia to actually mean? I am not asking you for some vague principles, but actual factual laws, do you have any?

    I have repeatedly posted examples from outside of Indonesia for the implementation of Sharia, not one of the implementations accords with Al Quran, Are you are a supporter of something which is defined by those examples, or are you a supporter of something else, you say yourself that “that the current implementation Sharia in Aceh is faraway from the basic principal GOD LAW”, so just what are you proposing to put in its place?

    Please do not put yourself forward as a supporter of some Mythical Principle called Sharia Law, when Sharia Law has never, ever, in recorded history been seen to be anything other than some corruption of Allahs Guiding Light.

    Islam is not about Sharia, it is about submitting yourself to Gods Will, how do you do that? by believing in God, believing in the Day of Judgement and doing good deeds!

    Peace

    Cuk, for once I agree with you. We should start worshipping cows, probably burn some incences at a Chinese temple.

    We have so many fake stuff, fake doctors, fake license, fake certificate, fake medicine you can list easily as much as you want.

    Once again you are right, you don’t get fake stuffs in India, China, Malaysia or Thailand.

    ….. by stealing those wealth and let our beloved brother and sister laborers to becomes slave in their own country.

    Our beloved brother and sister don’t like kebab, sate ayam taste better. Maybe you are referring to the wrong family.

    We never fly higher unless we able to reduce our burden and to increase our power but the funny thing, we are still in big fighting to determine which is our burden and which is our power at least in the small scale like in this blog.

    Cuk, instead of flying, all you have to do is WAKE UP, our daughters and sisters are suffering in the gulf. They are wondering why it took us so long to get them back. Should we tell them we are trying our best or tell them your winged horse is caught in the barb wire? Brother, look at yourself in the mirror, you and I are going to get them back, not the Chinese, Indian or the Arab migrants. If we are still fighting over religion, we will always be coolies in our own country and overseas.

  8. Cukurungan says:

    Aluang,

    Hehehe It seemed the words from your savior RM Cukurungan too shining for you and it made your eyes and brain socked so that you need to twist it before you can digest it.

    “Murid” no one here fighting for religion, we are fighting to determine what the type knife which more suitable for cutting the roots of our problems. It was clear that the roots of all our problems caused by the outbreak corruption which is deeply and broadly spreaded in our government and society. If we really serious want to bring back our sister back here, the action belows must be taken ASAP:

    1) Get out from WTO anf Cancel every free trade deal with other country.
    2) Hold any debts payment to IMF and World’s Bank until economic Indonesia in better shape.
    3) Put very high tariff for Import stuff that we can fabricate and produced it in here
    4) Stop import foods if necessary we eat singkong no problems.
    5) All managerial position must be Indonesia citizens, if Arab and malaysia can do this why we couldn’t.
    6) Don’t worry about our stuff export because the buyer will come by theirself.
    7) Flipp down Java Island to sea so that new and better generation could replace us.

    Hiya saviour, are you sure what you are writing – no religious fight? Maybe your buraq (in case anyone don’t know, it is Rasulallah’s flying pet horse) was flying too high and you can’t see what was going on between pribumis in Poso. They are hacking each other away.

    You have to turn your buraq around and fly toward east. Oh, I forgot your buraq’s wings were caught on barb wire. Jump onto our own Burung Singalang (Dayak’s mystical bird of war) and it will take you there. NO MORE choosing what type of knive, we have our own traditional kris. Be proud of what our ancestors handed down to us.

    If we really serious want to bring back our sister back here, the action belows must be taken ASAP: ………….

    ehh, no Islamic shariah or 1 rich pribumi having 6 halal wives craps? Congratulation, I see that you have finally awoken. Welcome back to reality 🙂

    Regards,
    God’s brother

    Gees. I sense that one is trying to praise and protect another religious idiot in trying to profess the Islamic religion which he can’t even explain well except ambiquity.

    I think either one or both of you should become a religious leader so that you could share the common amusement in humiliation and make a of fool out of yourself.
    Clap you hands when those alleged sinner were lash in public. I wonder if that person is either your daughter, relatives, or brothers and sisters, how would you feel? I am quite sure you will go all out to protect them or perhaps make a bribe of satay ayam so that these people will escaped the crime. The common word use I suppose is KKN!

    And it always occur that in between words there are always bound to have words made blasphemously towards another race or religion. As though you guy find it so amusing in making fun of.

    Do you guys like so much as discriminate, protect your religion, and humiliate those that had not been found guilty by law except by those uncredible witness who acted as though they were the 5th century war lords.

    People like you make Indonesia go back in time.

    You may know a few words in the Quran to bla bla bla here. But actually how well do you know the Quran?

    Cow sense.

    When I hear about these Caning’s and one poor women getting 39 lashes! and is in hospital in a bad way! What are they thinking!! Women are not strong enough to take this sort of punishment, far too harsh!
    Muslim men and all men are put on this earth to protect women..
    I think all Judges, Judges Mothers and men that get off on this sort of treatment of women.. should be Caned in public first, let then get a taste of the pain they are about inflicting on these beautiful Muslem women..
    God is good and anyone that is cruel to women and children will be punished on judgement day, no seven white virgins waiting at the pearly gates for you cruel people!

  13. Linda says:

    How tragic the boy and girl would be treated this way. And how sad that others would stand by and cheer. We should never rejoice in someone else’s hurt. This is an opportunity for some soul-searching about these teachings and to accept the unspoken belief in one’s heart that there has got to be something better. And there is. Seek and you will find.

  14. M&M says:

    Ppl from west who live just like animals , find an opposite sex and now even HOMOSEXUALS , their own sex , start having sex anywhere or everywhere then females give birth to an illigetmate child and ruin another life. Its common in every part of the world now coz these kafirs r every where. Their relegion CHristianity does not teach them all this but then Christianity they r following is not the REAL teachings of Hazrat Essa v all know that.

  15. stevo says:

    M&M, are you suggesting that public torture (and that is what caning is) be justified on the basis it prevents young people engaging in normal human behaviour?

    If that is what you are saying, then I suggest people like you are a greater moral (and physical) threat to a decent society.

    Sex is not sin, torture is.

  16. mirna lazo says:

    Unfortunately, like Mr. Aluang Anak Bayang said women in that county said their half the brain of the man. that’s because Man need to have women overpower. In any case the young couple is already 21 and 22 they are not children. i often wonder myself if this books like the bible and the koran are only books that were written for man conviniance
