BANDA ACEH, INDONESIA - MAY 23: An acehnese man gets caning in public from an executor known as 'algojo' for spending time with a woman who is not his wife, which is against Sharia law at Syuhada mosque on May 23, 2017 in Banda Aceh, Indonesia. Indonesia's Aceh Province, on the northern tip of Sumatra island, is among the only place in the Muslim-majority country which implements the strict version of Sharia Law. Public canings take place regularly in Aceh for a range of offenses from adultery to homosexuality to selling alcohol, while women are required to dress modestly and Shariah police officers patrol the streets and conduct raids to hunt for immoral activities. More than 90 per cent of the 255 million people who live in Indonesia describe themselves as Muslim, but the vast majority practice a moderate form. According to reports, the Shariah Law in Aceh began in 2001, after receiving authorization from Indonesia's central government, which was intent on calming separatist sentiment in the conservative region while today.
