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.
- 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.
This would be an outrage if the press had any courage whatsoever. Instead, they just cower and write fatuous stories about how bad America is.
I thought the grand liberal chant was, "It's for the children." See how little they really care.
