A court in the ultra-conservative kingdom of Saudi Arabia is punishing a female victim of gang rape with 200 lashes and six months in jail, a newspaper reported on Thursday.
The 19-year-old woman -- whose six armed attackers have been sentenced to jail terms -- was initially ordered to undergo 90 lashes for "being in the car of an unrelated male at the time of the rape," the Arab News reported.
But in a new verdict issued after Saudi Arabia's Higher Judicial Council ordered a retrial, the court in the eastern town of Al-Qatif more than doubled the number of lashes to 200.
No. These laws are based on a bastardization of a decent religion.

This isn’t new
Saudi and most Arab countries are backwards
They stopped progressing a couple hundred years ago when their lust of power got the better of them.
Before they use to have breakthroughs in science and technology
Nowadays it’s following some form of law that was written by men which they supposedly heard from the prophet and distorted even further over the centuries to ensure dominance and power in their backyard.
Stoning women and down grading them
Even so a woman is the only reason they are in this world.
And the first person to believe and comfort the prophet when the angels spoke to him was a Woman
And one thing the prophet has said is heaven lies at the feet of your Mother.
I’m no Fan of the Arabs, Israelis
