Imagine, and I apologise for the subject matter, that you’ve been gang-raped 14 times by seven men.
The case comes to court, and your attackers are given prison sentences of up to five years each. You, however, are convicted of breaking the law on male-female segregation laws, and you are sentenced to 90 lashes.
Would you appeal the sentence? I probably would. So, imagine that’s what you do.
As a result of the appeal, the rapists get their sentences doubled. The court also decides that the 90 lashes for you was inappropriate. So, it’s changed to 200 lashes. Plus six months in jail.
Are you happy now?
