Teenage Christian Girl Given 50 Lashes by Muslims for Wearing a Knee-Length Skirt in Sudan

Anyone want Muslims to start making laws for us here in the West? Anyone? Anyone?

KHARTOUM, Sudan - 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.

Hussein, a former journalist who used her case to campaign against Sudan's public order and decency regulations, is touring France to publicize her book about the prosecution. She had faced the maximum penalty of 40 lashes but was given a lighter sentence.

Kashif, whose family comes from the south Sudanese town of Yambio, was arrested while walking to the market near her home in the Khartoum suburb of Kalatla last week, her mother Jenty Doro told Reuters.

"She is just a young girl but the policeman pulled her along in the market like she was a criminal. It was wrong," said Doro.

Doro said Khashif was taken to Kalatla court where she was convicted and punished by a female police officer in front of the judge.

"I only heard about it after she was lashed. Later we all sat and cried ... People have different religions and that should be taken into account," she said. SOURCE

One argument I have read at least 2X (once by a Muslim in loonwatch and another time in a recent book called God is Back,if I remember rightly,written by 2 Britishers,non-Muslim)is that SHARIA LAW is ONLY for MUSLIMS.

The Britishers were talking about Sharia law in parts of Nigeria and said "it is only for Muslims by the way".What a lack of capacity to look at reality and intelligence.Of course Sharia law also affects non-Muslims.

What right do the muslims have toward non muslims? How dare they do such thing!!!

Treat others as you wish others to treat you...

Would be happy if the secular/atheist punish you for not following his atheist belief?

Answer me hey the Muslims?

The poor girl could have got away had she put hijab on her head. I wonder if she delayed her monthly jizia payment that she ended up having lashes.

Unless all who reject shariah stand up against it some countries in the west will see this happening very soon.

Talking of defending this one will be very easy for Muslims Simons. They defend so many other things that we reject.

I wish

What a stupidity to believe the sharia only applies to muslims! In a muslim country, everybody is ruled by islam! Or do you really think you could build a church in such countries? Or walk in a bikini in the streets?

It is utter nonsense to even stay in a muslim country as a non-muslim, because every single day you face the danger to be flogged, stoned, thrown off a wall, etc, etc. Women are raped, and when they report the crime, they are stoned to death because they committed adultry. It IS like that with the religion of peace.
