Australian man, convert to Islam, whipped for drinking
Catholic World News - July 20, 2011
An Australian man who had converted to Islam reports that he was whipped by his new co-religionists for drinking alcohol.
The Sydney man said that several men broke into his apartment at night and lashed him with a cable, leaving his body covered with welts. He said that the attack was punishment for having gone drinking with friends.
