‘Pay to avoid a lashing’: women in trousers face threats and abuse in Sudan

Fines for wearing trousers and the threat of beatings are being handed to women in Sudan “like traffic wardens issuing parking tickets”, say the authors of a study on the country’s controversial public order regime.

Researchers who carried out detailed interviews with 40 women who had fallen foul of the country’s discriminatory laws found corrupt officials are increasingly using the threat of flogging to elicit money.

      Most shit holes… mmm have a common theme. Islam.

    Sudan is ruled by and for arab islamo fascism writ large with a very thick coating of anti “black” racism for its “fellow muslims” and assorted infidels.

    I used to care about how Islam treats women, but after multiple experiences with Muslima’s at Parent teacher interviews, “Fuck em”.

    This is another case of Islam wanting to have it both ways. On one hand here we have women be threatened with punishment of a lashing for wearing pants on the other hand non Muslims are issued threats for not allowing Muslim women to wear pants in a public swimming pool. Islam is a religion of deceit.
