Muslim model becomes first woman in Malaysia to be caned after being caught drinking a beer

A Muslim part-time model will become the first woman to be caned in Malaysia after pleading guilty to drinking beer, a prosecutor said today.

An Islamic court ordered that Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno, 32, be lashed six times with a rattan cane after she was caught drinking alcohol in a raid on a hotel night club in eastern Pahang state last year.

Prosecutor Saiful Idham Sahimi said Kartika will be the first woman to be caned under Islamic law after she chose not to appeal the sentence.

He said: 'This is the first case in Malaysia. ... It is a good punishment because under Islamic law a person who drinks commits a serious offense.'

Yesterday the court set a one-week period starting next Monday for the sentence to be carried out in a woman's prison, Saiful said. Prison authorities will decide when to cane her during that period.

He said Kartika will remain in prison during that time and will be released 'as soon as possible' after the caning is carried out.

Neither looks like a hard criminal, nor a model. Oh, I forgot - she’s “part time”.

So Islam totally took over Malaysia eh ? It’s Sharia there now ?

Another hostile country. Great.

“the first woman to be caned in Malaysia”

I seriously doubt that. It was called ‘sporting fun’ in colonial times.

If it is similar to Singapore-- and I have no reason to suspect it is not-- the person to be caned is stripped from the waist down, and leans forward on a table about waist-high. A leather cape is placed over their back from the waist up to protect their ribs and vital organs in case of an errant blow.

The person administering the caning is trained in martial arts and swings a rattan cane soaked in water with full force from the arm on the bare buttocks. The skin is usually broken after the first or second blow and they are scarred for life. A physician is present to halt the process if it is deemed the prisoner cannot take additional strokes. Depending on the severity of the damage, the sentenced number of strokes may be either be completed in later installments or deemed completed based on actual number of strokes received.

A friend from Singapore whose classmate was caned said it was at least a week before the person canned could sit down or sh*t without great discomfort.

Since Malaysia is a Muslim country, I would suppose that a woman would administer the caning.

I wonder if rattan canes are on Rahm Emanuel’s “Future Projects” list.

The West is warned (by American liberal and Islamic jihadists alike) not to try to reintroduce Christianity to the Middle East (where it all began). We are told that these are “muslim lands”.

So just when did Mohammed ever go to Malaysia?

And we aren’t allowed to dump a little water on a Muzzie because it’s deemed torture.

Under their ideology drinking a beer is a sin and a crime, but putting plastic explosives around your 6 year old son’s waist and sending him to kill Jews is a wonderful thing.

Is that why they don't bathe? Can you imagine how sexy a Muslim woman is after wearing a burka all day in that heat?
