As Our President and His Secretary of State Celebrate Islam and the U.S.-Islamic World Forum ...Topics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
As our president and his secretary of state celebrate Islam and the U.S.-Islamic World Forum, meanwhile, in one of those "moderate" Muslim countries a 14 year-old schoolgirl is being tried for adultery.
A 14-YEAR-OLD Arab schoolgirl who has been detained in the United Arab Emirates on a charge of adultery will appear in court later this month.Read more.
"The trial will start in spite of the age ceiling set for trials on sexual related crimes by the UAE law," said the daily newspaper Gulf News today.
"The law states that the minimum age of suspects in crimes related to sex must be 15 years. Such cases should be conducted in special juvenile courts.
Otherwise, suspects are considered victims rather than suspects," the daily quoted a "law expert" as saying.
On April 5, Gulf News said police in the emirate of Ajman had arrested the teenager after she met up with her boyfriend on the roof of her family home.
She has since been forced to undergo a gynaecological examination which "confirmed she was still a virgin", the unnamed girl's father was quoted as saying by the English-language daily.
Perhaps the young schoolgirl should be glad that she lives in a "moderate" Muslim country. Otherwise, she'd be lucky to not be punished by Islam's mandated punishment for Islam - being stoned to death ... and even in the "moderate" Muslim country of the UAE ... although that still could very well happen.
