Man Stoned For Sex Out Of Wedlock, Pregnant Girlfriend To Follow

November 8, 2009

Somalia (ChattahBox) – A man has been stoned to death in the third adultery killing in the past year, with his pregnant girlfriend to follow within months.

Abas Hussein Abdirahman, a 33-year-old Muslim from the heavily religious region, was killed this week when it was found he was having sex out of wedlock with an unnamed woman.

The woman, who is pregnant, is set to be stoned after giving birth. The child will be given to relatives to raise.

“Their actions have nothing to do with Islam,” President Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed said in a statement.

“They are forcing women to wear very heavy clothes, saying they want them to properly cover their bodies but we know they have economic interests behind – they sell these kinds of clothes and want to force people to buy them.”

Stoning is common in the southern region of Somalia.

Earlier this year a 13-year-old girl who is believed to have been raped was stoned for the same offense.

Others have been stoned for ‘spying’, and various other offenses.

    More proof that, in spite of scientific advances attributed to the Arab world, Islamic law is still savage, barbaric, and sub-human.
