Justice - Saudi style."

Indeed, this kind of justice was repeated in United Arab Emirates, just 2 or 3 days back. Four girls of Pakistani origin who were repeated ly raped by their stepfather were to receive 80 lashes each for adultery, while the father is likey to get death sentence by stoning.

Sharia justice indeed, 80 lashes for the innocent girls!!!

It remains to be seen if the stepfather will be really put to death??

Is there a difference between Saudi Arabia and UAE and other Muslim countries ruled by sharia laws!!!
