Saudi Arabia: Gang Rape Victim Receives 200 Lashes

Saudi punishes gang rape victim with 200 lashes

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.

A court source told the English-language Arab News that the judges had decided to punish the woman further for “her attempt to aggravate and influence the judiciary through the media.”

Saudi Arabia enforces a strict Islamic doctrine known as Wahhabism and forbids unrelated men and women from associating with each other, bans women from driving and forces them to cover head-to-toe in public. Continue.

    Not an isolated case either. I am sad to say.

    Some Muslim females have been subjected to harsher punishments.

    “A less cruel execution”

    Did you know that they hang little girls in Iran? And if you do, do you know too that they rape them before they hang them so that they won’t go to heaven, as virgins are supposed to do?

    No human can stand much more than 40 lashes with a bullwhip so this poor women is being sentenced to death. I spent 6 years in Saudi.

    I thought as much. How barbaric. Those evil cruel inhumane animals.
    Any other insight gained from your having lived in Saudi would be more than welcome.

      Don’t live there, China, Philippines, and most country’s that treat women as second class citzens and they come here and live like kings own businesses but they treat Tiger Woods like shit go figure. WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TOO. RECENTLY THE USA HAVE ALLOWED SEVERAL GROUPS OF HORRIBLE PEOPLE TO COME HERE (USA) and set up shop. Italians, Chinese, Russians, Polish, and Arabs,China allows prositution is legal every 3 to 5 star hotel has a massage Parlor connected you can order a female like ordering a Big Mac, Russians sex slaves are as common as anything and mail order brides, India or Same thing and so many others. The one thing about Arbia it is all spelled out clear and simple so what’s up. Why the double standered let people control there country as it has been who are we but a crime filled, AIDS infected, Money hoarding scoundrels that’s all I have to say

    American politicians forging friendships with those Saudi and other extremist slimeballs makes me sick to my stomach. And with Islamic banks buying up our own lending instutions’ debt now, we think we are free?

    It is insulting to animals to be compared with these heinous humans. But since they seem to fear above all, to be with swine when they die, perhaps the pigs of this world will forgive us to use that against these subhuman schmucks. First, the US should impeach and imprison our own war criminals, Saudi pals Bush, Cheney, and possibly Rove; then work with the UN to bring the Islamic human rights criminals to justice as well. And after they all serve their life sentences, they can get buried next to the bodies of deceased pigs.

    Second,(and simultaneously),legislation needs to be demanded for electric cars nationwide, just as it was once, successfully, in California. We then cease all business with Saudia Arabia and any other country that tortures, enslaves, and imprisons half of its population just for being born female.

    This rape story isn’t about rape it is more about hate against Muslims and other religions.
    Good that we have the world police America to watch over us as a glory hawk that strikes down poor people around the world. What makes me sick is the mass raping in Africa, Vietnam and Iraq that nobody ever talks about. Perverted people can’t be raped in California where there is forbidden to say dad or mom by new Arnold Schwarzenegger’s law, so you can all **** each other ***** and *****. All the *********** little children in churches of America are just good Christians and all other religions and countries are not good in the preaching of mighty USA LORD Jesus. Christians never go to war with other Christian nation or talk bad about their religion like Muslims never talk bad about their religion. Thats what you get when you praise your god at any cost.

    Move on freak. Or find a vocabulary that is not that of a 17 year old.
    I have edited out your vulgarities.

    You have missed the entire point! 🙄
    Flogging a young woman for what should NOT even be an offense is all about control and submission.
    She was gang raped by 7 men!!!!! Then sentenced to what ended up in the end (God forbid she speak to the media) as 200 lashes!!!!
    If speaking out about that is hate. Well then…

    SA really needs to go through some sort of cultural revolution. It will take time – 50 – or 100 years – but it will happen.

    Three opinions I draw from this issue:
    a) Don’t be afraid of the criminals as much as you should be of a judicial system not structured.
    b) A, let’s call it, cultural revolution will happen not only to Islam but to all religions because religions have been static through time and mankind has evolved far beyond of them.
    c) Unfair sentences will be stopped when more and more voices speak up. This will lead to a change.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host - by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
