Islamic court in Saudi Arabia sentences man to 70 lashes in public

"Arab News" reports that Saudi Arabia has implemented once again Islamic law and is disrespecting human rights:

Indian flogged for sacrilege By Abdullah Al-Fehaid

SUDAIR, 20 January 2003 An Indian worker in Roudhat Sudair, 150 km north of Riyadh, was sentenced to 70 lashes in public and deportation by a Shariah court here for urinating on the walls of a mosque. The man, a non-Muslim tailor, was proved guilty of repeating the sacrilegious act several times with malicious intention. He was flogged at the courtyard of the Sabeen Mosque in Roudhat Sudair. Security agencies are now taking steps to deport him.

As a matter of policy, I don't link to Nazi publications (such as this "Arab News"), so I won't list the source of the above article. Thanks to LGF for the link.

he deserved to get life in prison for doing such a thing to a holly place and as a Muslim women i thing that he got what he deserved by urinating on the holliest place of the muslim people of the world and as my opinion i think that he deserves to get killed instead og prison for 70 years. Asalama Alaykum to all my Muslim brothers and sisters all over the world

The above mosque is not the "holliest place of the muslim people of the world" - it's just a building.

No, the man does not deserve to get killed because he urinated on a building.

Your intolerance is simply unbelievable and it will lead you nowhere.

Many of us in Israel and the United States will continue to fight for women rights, gay right, and just human rights.

Stop your calls for violence, hatred and murder based on your Islamic narrow-mindedness - it is barbaric and the world will not accept it.

hey man, Shalom

you just insulted our religion and i'm not here to fight you back or anything, but look how would you feel if a non-jew just walked up to the western wall and started urinating on it, while some of the jews were there reading the old testement or celebrating in the october month cause i heared it has a lot of holidays for you.
And look as it stated he did it "several" times so he was disrespecting god and 2 billion people in the world, and i'm sure he was told nicely at least once. As for freedom, this isn't freedom steping or disgracing other people's holly places, you have COMPLETE freedom as long as it doesn't VIOLATE other peoples freedom and for women rights they have rights ages before the US, let them vote or work or do anything, islam stoped slavery 1426 years ago, yet the US only stoped it 300 years ago with abraham lincon, and black were given rights in the 70s or 80s before that they were less the humans in most of the american society, so do your research first before insulting other people's beleives.
Shalom, Peace be upon you
