Even more horrific than the Gillian Gibbons case is the one of the so-called Qatif girl in Saudi Arabia.
Gang-raped by seven thugs, she faces 200 lashes as punishment for being in the presence of a man other than a relative. Not to mention six months' imprisonment. And a brother who wants to murder her for bringing dishonour to her family.
She is fortunate to have a husband who loves her and who supports her in all of this. If he does not believe that she is an adultress, it is beyond my comprehension why anyone else should feel she needs to be punished.
Do remember, a survey last year indicated that 40% of BRITISH Muslims support the introduction of Shari'a law in this country.
