The guy in question has stated that he converted to the religion to get the help he needed to stop his problem drinking. Must say that was a strong step to take knowing how he woud be dealt with.
A MUSLIM convert was repeatedly whipped with electrical cord during a home invasion allegedly as part of a sharia law punishment for drinking alcohol. Two men have been charged over the incident, which occurred in Sydney's western suburbs in the early hours of Sunday morning. Yesterday, Tolga Cifci, 20, appeared in Burwood Local Court charged with aggravated breaking and entering, and committing an indictable offence. Yesterday afternoon, NSW police charged a second man over the incident, in which Christian Martinez, 31, was allegedly restrained on his bed by three men while a fourth lashed him 40 times with an electric cable in his Silverwater home, allegedly because the men had seen him drinking alcohol, which is not allowed in the Muslim faith.

I understand he was always Muslim but converted to the more Orthodox/extreme version of Islam.
