FID: Late

  • 14-year-old Hena Akhter was found guilty of adultery and sentenced to 101 public lashes under Shariah law.
  • She died from being flogged — despite Shariah law being outlawed in Bangladesh — but doctors tried to cover that up.
  • Her family claims she was raped by a cousin.
  • Police are now investigating the incident.
Up until her last breath, young Hena Akhter declared her innocence. But that didn’t matter. The 14-year-old Bangladeshi Muslim girl was lashed to death, accused of adultery.
The imam at the local mosque said she was guilty of having an affair with a married man. Her family said she was raped. The imam disagreed. He ordered a fatwa: 101 public lashes. She lasted only 70.

Amazingly CNN has the whole story

Police are investigating? LOL! Isn't that like hiring the murderer to investigate who done it?

The upside of it is that every time they stone or flog to death one of their women they remove a reproductive tract and thus slow the rate by which their infestation spreads.
