"KHARTOUM (Reuters) - A 16-year-old south Sudanese girl was lashed 50 times after a judge ruled her knee-length skirt was indecent, her lawyer and family said in the latest case to push Sudan's Islamic law into the spotlight.
The mother of teenager Silva Kashif told Reuters on Friday she was planning to sue the police who made the arrest and the judge who imposed the sentence, as her daughter was underage and a Christian.
The case will add fuel to a debate already raging over Sudan's decency laws after this year's high-profile conviction of Sudanese U.N. official Lubna Hussein, who was briefly jailed for wearing trousers in public."
Islamic law is also known as "Sharia law", and is believed by most Muslims as God's own law for daily living - even in Western nations to which Muslims immigrate.
To the Western observer, Sharia law is brutal & unforgiving - especially toward females. Last week
"A 20-year-old woman divorcee accused of committing adultery in Somalia has been stoned to death by Islamists in front of a crowd of about 200 people... Her boyfriend was given 100 lashes.
BBC East Africa correspondent Will Ross says the stoning is at least the fourth for adultery in Somalia over the last year."
Muslims also frequently use Sharia law to justify honor killings of female family members.
These examples are why we here at locomotivebreath1901 refer to Islam as "the religion of brutalizing and murdering women."
And isn't it strange how Code Pinko, NOW and Hollyweird beautiful people are silent on this institutionalized violence against women? Perhaps they are all following Dear leader's example of respecting the multi-culturalism.
