Two beers? That'll be 130 lashes

Ouch. I hope that beer was good.

An Iranian emigrant to Norway was visiting relatives in Iran when he was caught red-handed in the midst of the heinous crime of drinking beer.
"We were on an outing with family and friends, six or seven in the evening, and were having a barbecue and enjoying ourselves. Altogether I drank two beers. The police happened to drive by," Mamandy said.

He said that he was immediately arrested and taken to the police station where he was sentenced to 130 lashes. This sentence, for beer drinking, was carried out publicly according to news agency Iran Focus.
Ain't Sharia grand?
