The learned analysts have repeatedly assured us that Sharia provisions do not apply to non-Muslims.
Sharia Alert: “Christian girl, 16, gets 50 lashes for wearing ‘indecent’ knee-length skirt in Sudan,” from the Daily Mail, November 27 (thanks to Alexandre):
A 16-year-old Sudanese girl was lashed 50 times after a judge ruled her knee-length skirt was indecent, her family said today.
The mother of Christian teenager Silva Kashif said she is to sue police and the judge who imposed the sentence under Islamic shariah law.
Saying she only learned about her daughter’s conviction after she had been lashed, mother Jenty Doro said the family’s religion should have been taken into account.
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, 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….
In many ways.
