Maldives: Rape Victim Sentenced To 100 Lashes

SkyNews: A 15-year-old alleged rape victim in the Maldives has been sentenced to 100 lashes and eight months under house arrest for engaging in premarital sex. The girl admitted having consensual sex with a man in an incident unrelated to the rape. Sex outside of marriage is illegal under the Islamic law of the island nation.

Police were investigating allegations that the girl had been raped by her stepfather when they uncovered the evidence. The girl’s stepfather is facing 25 years in prison for the rape and allegedly killing a baby conceived from it.

Despite condemnation from the UN and Amnesty International, court officials have said the flogging will be carried out once the girl turns 18. The Maldivian government has urged the courts to show leniency towards the girl, describing her as “traumatised” by the rape.

It is not known whether the her partner will also be charged with having premarital sex.

Last September, a 16-year-old Maldivian girl was sentenced to public flogging after she confessed to premarital sex. Her partner received a 10-year prison sentence.

The Indian Ocean nation is home to almost 330,000 people, and all of its citizens belong to the Muslim faith. The public practice of any religion other than Islam is prohibited under Maldivian law.

The Official Travel Guide of the Maldives describes the islands as, “the sunny side of life”. Apparently only if succumb to Islam and its denigrating treatment of women.

  1. Nuts.

  2. Oh, but it’s misogynistic to say Sandra Fluke should get her own birth control…

    If Muhammad were here, he’d send Aisha to console her.

  4. Liberals fiercely defend Muslims, while accusing Republican’s of waging a war on women because they don’t believe tax payers should be forced to pay for birth control or abortive drugs. Sharia Law which is supported by 78 percent of all Muslims, not only dictates the brutalization of women, but actively participates in it. Are liberals that ignorant or do they believe the rest of us aren’t smart enough to seek the truth?
