Saudi Arabia to abolish flogging

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Saudi Arabia is to abolish flogging as a form of punishment, according to a legal document seen by media outlets.

The directive from the Gulf kingdom's Supreme Court says flogging will be replaced by imprisonment or fines.

It says this is an extension of human rights reforms brought by King Salman and his son, the country's de facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

WHAT?? But how will the witches and homosexuals ever learn the Evil of their ways? (Sarcasm) 

I guess they'll simply have to go straight to beheading... :cry:

There are no homosexuals in Saudi Arabia.  None in Iran either.

(according to the rulers, that is)

Doesn't stop them from catching some from time to time. :P

Not every crime in Saudi Arabia was actually committed by the person being charged...
