We hear much about how bad women have it under Muslim law, with every instance of harsher punishment that would be given in the ‘West’ making media headlines.
Seldom do we ever hear that men are stoned or flogged on a more frequent basis than women. So it is good to see the Daily Mail keep up with a trend to report on the times when men have it tough around the world.
Two men are publicly flogged in Indonesia under Sharia law after being caught gambling
Before we should criticise another culture for there actions, we should open our minds. Yes, punishment is generally harsher under Islam. However, crime is much lower. Just as some might see their actions as barbaric, some living in the Middle East view our tolerance of crime in our society as barbaric.
