Comments on: Trouser-wearing Sudan woman to be fined or jailed, not whipped http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2009/09/07/trouser-wearing-sudan-woman-to-be-fined-or-jailed-not-whipped/ Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Scott Mahadeo http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2009/09/07/trouser-wearing-sudan-woman-to-be-fined-or-jailed-not-whipped/comment-page-1/#comment-15539 Wed, 09 Sep 2009 14:30:59 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/?p=7951#comment-15539 I read this story in the world news section in a local newspaper in Trinidad and Tobago. The level of ancient madness that women are subjected to in Sudan is tremendously unsettling. The 21st Century cannot accommodate this uncivilised behaviour of wanting to senselessly punish women for such trivial incidents. There was clearly nothing indecent with the Sudanese woman’s attire. The role of law enforcement in any cultured society is expected to be one of protecting and serving its citizens rather than frustrating, terrorising and harassing them. A society of men who cannot empathise with their female population and subordinate their mothers, daughters and wives is indeed barbaric and underdeveloped. This requires immediate and significant social reform.

The dress for all Muslims, men and women, is simply modesty. If the picture above is representative of what these women were wearing when arrested, then the Sudanese government was out of order. This woman’s garment is not revealing and is very modest. Even if it was not modest by their standards, the extremeness of the punishment far outweighs the “crime.” The Sudanese should remember that Allah (God) is the Most Merciful. We should follow Allah’s (God’s)and Prophet Muhammad’s example of mercy. They need to go back and read the Qur’an more carefully and follow it’s instructions and not their own chauvinist whims.
