A Sharia Court in the United Arab Emirates has sentenced a pregnant housemaid to get 150 lashes because she is pregnant and not married. If she survive, she will get deported.


From: gulfnews.com: Pregnant housemaid to get 150 lashes for adultery

A maid was sentenced to 150 lashes yesterday for getting pregnant out of wedlock.

A Sharia Court official said the maid's UAE national sponsor filed a case with police accusing N.S.T of committing adultery and being pregnant.

She refused to reveal the name of the child's father, despite being interrogated by the police and the public prosecutor.

The court sentenced her to 150 lashes, to be administered in two stages. She will then be deported.


Just to think about the fact that somebody is about to give 150 lashes to a pregnant girl makes me totally speechless. And this is their law, they call this justice. Brave girl, she didn´t tell the name of the child´s father. Sharia =



Finding a picture of a pregnant girl getting lashed is not easy.
So here´s a "good old" Sharia stoning instead...

This type of fundimentalism just makes me want to puke. Proof positive that the seperation of church and state is a good thing.

Edit: missed a "c".

I´m not sure if rape is considered as a crime over there. Fundamentalists say that if a woman is not completely covered from top to toe, she is "asking to get raped"...

thats their law so she's gotta accept it. of course people do not have to like the laws of other countries but it is not up to us to tell them that lashing a woman can not take place any more. perhaps one day they will move beyond physical forms of punishment. that is up to their country though.
