Furore as 2 Malaysian women are flogged publicly for lesbian acts

There is widespread condemnation in Malaysia after authorities punished two women who attempted to have s*x in a car by flogging them publicly.

The rare public whipping that was denounced by some politicians, rights groups, lawyers and activists was witnessed by more than 100 people in an Islamic court in the conservative northeast state of Terengganu.

The women, aged 22 and 32, were seated on stools facing the judges and given six strokes from a light rattan cane on their backs by female prison officers.

The women, dressed in white headscarves and clothing, did not cry or scream but “showed remorse”, said Muslim Lawyers’ Association Deputy President Abdul Rahim Sinwan.
