90 Lashes

March 7, 2007

What sort of crime earns a girl 90 lashes?

Apparently, being blackmailed into meeting a man and then (while in the car with him) being kidnapped by a knifewielding gang, then being raped 14 consecutive times and on top of that being beaten by your brother for being raped and bringing dishonour to the family isn’t enough pain and trauma.

It is a crime to be alone with a non-relative of the opposite sex in Saudi Arabia and therefore 90 lashes have been earned by this 19 year old girl.

Just an fyi – yes at least the men have recieved jail sentences ranging from 10 months to 5 years.  Any of them get the 90 lashes as well?   I’m assuming the answer is no, but the judge did inform the girl that she is lucky that she didn’t recieve jail time.

Excuse me while I go throw up now.

    Things like this make me crazy. Power mad clerics controlling women and treating them like tribal and spousal property. Saudi Arabia will always be a primitive country because of it. The Prophet (pbuh) would never allow it. Shame on them.

    Ya Haqq!

    Irving and Abdur Rahman – I know! I know! I just wish I could do more to help change things.
