More mercy 45

Here’s a second post today that tells a news story about the treatment of women in Islam. This one is an example of Islamic ‘justice’ under sharia law in Bangladesh.

From News Blaze:

A 16-year-old girl who was raped in Bangladesh has been given 101 lashes for conceiving during the assault.

The girl’s father was also fined and warned the family would be branded outcasts from their village if he did not pay.

According to human rights activists, the girl, who was quickly married after the attack, was divorced weeks later after medical tests revealed she was pregnant.

Her rapist was pardoned by the elders.
