    Sudan women 'lashed for trousers'

    BBC NEWS | Africa | Sudan women 'lashed for trousers'

    Several Sudanese women have been flogged as a punishment for dressing "indecently", according to a local journalist who was arrested with them.

    Lubna Ahmed al-Hussein, who says she is facing 40 lashes, said she and 12 other women wearing trousers were arrested in a restaurant in the capital, Khartoum.

    She told the BBC several of the women had pleaded guilty to the charges and had 10 lashes immediately.

    Khartoum, unlike South Sudan, is governed by Sharia law.

    Several of those punished were from the mainly Christian and animist south, Ms Hussein said.

    Non-Muslims are not supposed to be subject to Islamic law, even in Khartoum and other parts of the mainly Muslim north.
    Man, Islam really knows how to treat a lady. Now, if the laws of Sudan are as mentioned, will this create further tension between the Chritian South and Islamic North?

    See what we here in the US have to look forward too?

    The leftists would do the same thing if they were given the chance.

    I think leftists would let women walk around naked. It's the far right that houses the fundamentalists.

    But it's the left that forces it's agenda on the rest of the country.

    How so? Last I checked the "rest" of the country went Democrat.

    I realize you are extremely partisan and hate the left with a passion, but honestly, what in the world would ever lead you to believe that people on the left would want that? Leftists are guilty of a lot of things, but wanting to flog women for wearing trousers? Give me a break.

    It's not just extremists on the left. Typically extremists of any ideology feel the need to force their agenda on everyone else.

    No Doc, you didn't realize that the left wants to prevent people from getting married, and tell women what to do with their body, and tell people they have to have the ten commandments on government property, and tell scientists what science is, and.... Oh wait, no thats the right. My bad.

    This type of behavior is typical of countries with Islamic governance; people are desensitized to it, that's why certain liberals can piss and moan all day about Christian intolerance and regressiveness in America while turning a blind eye to - and sometimes siding with - Islamic fundamentalists the world over.
