Woman Sentenced To Death For Adultery Whilst The Man Involved Gets 100 Lashes

Na wa o! A woman in Saudi Arabia is discovering in the hard way the deep, internalised misogyny of the country, as she’s sentenced to death for committing adultery.

The woman in question is a 45 year old Sri Lankan woman, who works in Riyadh as a maid. She reportedly committed the ‘offence’ with a single man, also Sri Lankan, who for his iniquity got one hundred lashes to be administered to him.

One baffling thing about incidence like this is the fact that those same oppressed people do their best to defend the very establishment oppressing them. We are often blinded by sentiments.

How fair a judgement is this?
