A Sharia courtroom filled with over 100 people in the conservative northeast region of Malaysia watched on last week as two women were caned six times each for attempting to have sex in a car.

The public caning was the first punishment of its kind used against two women attempting to have lesbian sex.

Sharia law enforcement agents caught them in a car together engaging in sexual acts back in April.

In Malaysia, the federal government allows each state to enact its own Sharia laws that can be enforced next to more traditional, legislative laws.

Malaysia has come under fire in recent months from the international community for its antiquated and close-minded views on LGBTQ issues and religion–especially in its northern border states.

A couple months ago, a 41-year-old Malaysian man married an 11-year-old girl in an Islamic court.

And, even more recently, authorities in Kuala Lumpur raided a famous LGBTQ nightclub and detained 11 individuals for “illicit behavior” ie being gay.
