Just read this news on a couple of news sites. (Here and Here)
This young girl was raped by her stepfather and subsequently she gave birth to a baby that was then killed and buried in the outdoor shower area by him. He was later charged with child sexual abuse, possession of pornographic materials and committing premeditated murder. Her mother was charged with concealing a crime and failing to report child sexual abuse to the authorities.

During the police investigation it was discovered that the girl had engaged in sexual activity with somebody else.
For this the girl has now been sentenced to receive 100 lashes and is to be held under house arrest for 8 months.

Not surprisingly the Prosecutor Generals office will not clarify whether the male offender faced the same charge of premarital sex.

This is another case of how fecked up Islamic Sharia law is where an underage female victim receives the most inhumane treatment and punishment rather than help.

The legal system of the Maldives, an Islamic archipelago with a population of some 400,000, has elements of Islamic law (Sharia) as well as English common law.


Yep, there's your problem right there. Seems to be a particular theocratic vantage point that monopolizes the beating of rape victims.

This would be surprising if she was sentenced in say, France, or something.

Id love to see some of our Muslim members jump in to defend this one.

Yes Islam is a religion of peace and women are protected and treated as equals under Islamic law

Oh women are highly respected and treated as equals under their wonderful system (/sarcasm)

Of 129 fornication cases in 2011, 104 people were sentenced, out of which 93 were female. This included 10 underage girls, 79 women aged 18-40 and and four women above 40 years.

Women are 9 times more likely than men to be flogged.

Of course it’s harsh and I 100% disagree and detest these sorts of things but its their culture, their lands and their laws. It’s as simple as that, really. It’s no one else’s business what happens in their little slice of hell. Though, this is one of many reasons why I very much dislike religion... I don’t think people from the West can really judge considering how they let their governments treat them. Only here they do it covertly and more through financial means. Over there it’s very overt and often brutal.

Ah, the peaceful and tolerant religion of the masses. This is the normal activity of the glorious people of islam. Knowing the laws and common practices of this pro women sect, would you be ok with your daughter dating or marrying a devout hardcore muslim knowing how they hold dogs above women? honestly, let her deny all rights as a human? This sounds like the next new matchmaking website, " Shariaharmony.com"

Country's like India and other middle eastern places mainly bring their daughter up as an investment they hope when she is at the right age they can marry her off for riches when the daughter is raped all they are about is her no longer been pure and some parents have even been known to kill their daughters to avoid shame brought on the family its seriously messed up.

Stop lying about Islam. It never happsn, or if it does it only happens because of one single individual case.

You can't lump all islam in the same bucket, time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time... *inhales* and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time .. this happens.

It's all made up propaganda by the haters. I know it's all made up because I knew a muslim once.

Stop the hate.

One single case?

Of the 184 people sentenced to public flogging in 2006, 146 were female

Explain these figures then or are they just made up by the "haters"?

It would be interesting to know if her father abused her before her sexual encounter and was perhaps the cause of her behavior. Course, I doubt Sharia law takes any such thing into consideration.

I'm sorry but for some strange reason I don't find it a joking matter.

OK I gotta correct you here, dogs are actually considered haram and technically you can beat a dog on site, women are only haram while menstruating and you need a reason to beat a woman.
Lets not imply theyre backwards or anything


I live in a Muslim country and most educated muslim girls I know dont wanna date or marry muslim men.
As for my sister, Hells no I wouldnt be happy!!!!!

I dont care about the race but a religious type of any denomination would other me. Thankfully my sister isnt stupid

Tell that to the families of the two Christian victims in New Jersey who were shot, and beheaded because of there peaceful outlook on life....fundamentalism is one thing....disturbed. Allah would not be proud of most muslims just like Christ would not be too proud of most Christians....stick by the golden rule and don't worry about either.

Sorry to tell you folks but the good old "Christian" US sometimes isn't much better.

There's plenty of cases where young 13-16 old girls are charged as prostitutes in States that deem them under the age of consent.

Here's one article:

100 lashes? That's just inhumane.
I remember getting the belt a couple times as a kid but this is just beyond ridiculous

I know a crap load of muslims, and have been to the ME many times, this is real and common, and in this enviornment you need no reason to beat a woman, and if you want her gone, real easy and clean, Say what you want, just because you refuse the truth, it does not make it less real.

Is this really about a religion? I see a Child who has been abused and abused and abused some more. Then I see the Child abused by the 'system' that is supposed to protect and support.

This news article - and who is to say whether it is true or not - is a reflection of a global society. Yes global - the immediate society who lives with such a barbaric system and the rest of society who read these articles and then move onto the next with nary another thought for an abused Child.

One might suggest the actions of the immediate society are psychopathic and the behaviours of the rest of the globe narcissistic and lacking empathy - for allowing it to continue unchecked.

Should this article be true all I can say is - God/ the Universe/Fate/Karma - something or someone - help the Children because the adults are out of control.

Much Peace...for all abused Children...
