Sharia Beatings Largely Ignored By Trump Protestors.
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.
Yesterday, many expressed outrage online and suggested there are so few protests because the issue is ‘not trendy’ or because it is not politically correct to criticise Muslim countries’ treatment of women.
