read on through the story to see what punishment the court system inflicted on her attackers. I rather wish we did this in the United States. it would cut down on a lot of BS and who knows, perhaps the deterrance value of punishment would go up.

Follow the links for videos, facts and a hell of a lot more reading. If you pay attention, the punishment will make you raise your eyebrows at a minimum.

"Their sentence: to be subjected to the same mutilation as Fazeelat. They are also to serve life in prison and pay a fine equivalent to $8,300."

Wow, if that doens't teach 'em . . .

I'd agree with this type of punishment 100% of the time if 100% of the time the guilty were indeed guilty.
