Lashes for trousers

Still hot news almost for the all European newspaper about ban of wearing hijab on France, this Islamic phobia are become another discrimination for free of fashion style in fashion country (you are also free not using fashion/nude on the street). But the country rule/law is their rule, this should be adhere and commit by their citizen even the visitor isn't it.

Almost non Muslim country they have the free fashion style for man and women (include the child), but for some Muslim country their have also the law even regarding how to wearing the dress to cover "Aurat" ( part of the body can make sensuous by just viewing) as adhere to the religion. And part of protection to women dignity/value in front of the opposite gender (man) view, because 90% man view to the women always related with sex desire. To ruled and strict the shariah (Islamic law) only authorize power holder can justify that. In this case Sudanese court finally adjourned the woman journalist case with facing 40 lashes for wearing “indecent” trousers, with 10 women already whipped for similar offensives against Islamic law. The judge have been deferred the case, due to Lubna Ahmed al-Hussein, who works for the left-wing Al Sahafa newspaper and for the media department of the UN Mission in Sudan, waived the immunity given to UN workers. “The court gave Lubna the choice either to accept immunity from the UN or to waive that and go on with the trial,” her lawyer Nabil Adeeb said. “I wish to resign from the UN, I wish this court case to continue,” Hussein told a packed courtroom before the judge adjourned the case to August 4. Hussein, who wears a hijab or Islamic headscarf, faces 40 lashes and a fine of 250 Sudanese pounds ($100) if found guilty. She wore the same clothes to court as when she was arrested - moss-green slacks with a loose floral top and green headscarf. Hussein said she was at a restaurant on July 3 when police came in and ordered 13 women wearing trousers to follow them to the police station. Ten of the women were summoned to a police station two days later and were lashed 10 times each, according to Hussein. The women whipped earlier this month included some from animist and Christian south Sudan where the Muslim north’s Shariah law does not apply. Scores of people crammed into the courthouse to hear the ruling, many of them female supporters—some of them also wearing trousers out of solidarity. Some held up placards on the street outside. “A woman is not for flogging,” read one in Arabic.
“We are here to support Lubna, because this treatment of women is arbitrary and not correct,” said Zuhal Mohamed Elamin, a law professor in Khartoum. “Women should not be humiliated in this manner.” Police have also cracked down on another woman journalist, Amal Habbani, after she wrote an article condemning Hussein’s treatment.
Habbani wrote an article for Ajrass Al Horreya newspaper following the arrests entitled ‘Lubna, a case of subduing a woman’s body.’ “I am waiting for a decision,” Habbani said after she was charged with defaming police, a charge which can carry a fine of up to several hundred thousand dollars.
