500 lashes?!

I guess this is exactly how Mansor Almaribe's butt will look like after being lashed 10 times. However, the Australian was sentenced to 500 lashes and a year in a Saudi Arabian jail after being convicted of blasphemy during the just concluded hajj season.

I believe his whole butt flesh will be 'minced' just after 50 strokes and his bones will be exposed after 200. Another 300 lashes? It's as good as condemning him to death!

The 45-year-old man was detained in the holy city of Medina last month while making the Muslim pilgrimage of hajj. Family members told Australian media that Saudi officials accused him of insulting the companions of the Prophet Muhammad, a violation of Saudi Arabia's strict blasphemy laws.

In Malaysia, 'blasphemy' is becoming so common. Insulting the King and the Malay Rulers, and making racist remarks are part of the 'freedom of speech' and 'human rights' labels some quarters sought.

And how many lashes should we give to such people, especially those who insulted the King and in invoking racism and religious sentiment? 5? 10? 250? It's not easy to regulate such a law, isnt't it? And I believe many people will oppose to it.

For Mansor Almaribe, there will be no reason for him to live if he won't be able to sit down for the rest of his life for losing his butt. Better if we shoot him in the head!


Oohhh.... By the way, do you still remember this local case?

Oooppsss.... no further comment...

waaa!

u are so careful not to point to any set of law.

the fact is, we support any law but it has to be fair. except for mandatory or capital punishment, others must take into account the effect it will bring to those penalised.

if it bring shame on him for the rest of his life, it's still not fair as he already being punished.

if all opportunities to continue with his life is shut after being sentenced, it's still not fair.

right, bro?

alamak bang!

memang akan hancur semua daging punggungnya kalau kena 500 sebatan. mungkin juga dia akan tidak tertanggung bila kena 50.

mungkin belum sampai 100 sebatan, dia dah mati... wallahualam.

tapi betul gak. kalau dah takda daging punggung, macam mana nak duduk selepas tu kalau usianya panjang hingga 80 tahun. dia baru 45, takkan nak berdiri je lagi 35 tahun!

salam,

saya kira itu undang2 hudud yang ditetapkan oleh kerajaan arab saudi. memang kesalahan besar menghina rasulullah dan para sahabat.

cuma saya rasa kalau 500 sebatan, lebih baik hukum bunuh saja.

undang2 hudud memang baik tetapi ia perlu mengambil kira banyak aspek. di malaysia, ia memerlukan masa yang lama untuk kajian. ia juga perlu mengambil kira kepentingan semua kaum. kita berbeza dengan negara lain.

Probably just 3 or 5 lashes and the remaining 450lashes put to good use by committing this person to "hard labour" or the like that may be of benefit to the community.
