Iranian woman flogged 80 times for drinking alcohol #M103

An Iranian woman has been flogged 80 times upon return to Iran after Norway rejected her asylum application and deported her, rights groups have said.

Leila Bayat, 36, was sentenced to 80 lashes after she was caught drinking alcohol with some friends during a party in 2007. Consuming alcoholic beverages is forbidden in the Islamic Republic, which is governed by sharia law.

    She should start agitating for Sharia law in Norway. They will welcome her with open arms, stupid Scandinavians.

    So we fought the Communist Party of Malaya, dying, getting maimed and bleeding for these Fascistic Bastards to terrorise us?

  • I would drink alcohol, too, if I were trapped in a mad theocratic state.
