Teenage girl punished for pre-marital sex

Stop crime against women

A court in the tiny island of Feydhoo last week has sentenced a 15-year-old to 100 lashes after she admitted for having consensual sex. The details emerged when police investigated her complaint against her stepfather and another man of sexually abusing her.

The government is against it but as its an Islamic affair so they don’t want to interfere in the matter. Even the United Nations high commissioner for human rights Navi Pillay in 2011 urged Maldives to end the “degrading” practice.
