Shariah law in Indonesia

This image is really disturbing, particularly to my Western sensibility. It makes me wonder if we are going to see stoning next. According to Human Rights Watch, that's a possibility:

The new law calls for married adulterers to be stoned to death and punishes consensual sexual conduct with flogging - 100 lashes each for homosexual conduct and for adulterous conduct between unmarried partners. The law (Law No. 11/2006 of the Government of Aceh) passed on September 14, 2009, and although Aceh's governor, Irwandi Yusuf, has said he will not sign the law, it will take effect in mid-October unless national authorities intervene.
