Saudi Arabian court sentenced a Saudi woman to 80 lashes for insulting her husband’s second wife.
The Woman heard that her husband has just got himself a new wife, who is a faculty member in Rafha girls University in Northern Saudi. She went to Rafha University looking for her husband’s second wife. When she met her she could not help it, she started insulting her husband’s second wife, yelled at her and called her bad names in the college lobby in front of the staff and the students.
The second wife sued her husband’s first wife and won the case. The judge’s verdict was to send the woman to 80 lashes as per islam/ Sharia law. The 80 lashes punishment in Islam is used to punish a person who calls another a w**re or a s*ut. The second wife wanted to take revange and so she demanded the punishment to be carried out in the college lobby where the incident happened.The students from Rafah University witnessed the incidence and tweeted the story in twitter. Apparently someone has managed to take a photo of the woman who was sitting in the lobby and about to receive the 80 lashes.
According to Sharia law, Muslim Men are allowed to have up to 4 wives and countless number of sex slaves. Despite the fact that sex slavery has slowly disappeared from the Muslim modern society, polygamy is still widely accepted and common.
