Another woman has been stoned to death for adultery — this time in Somalia. In Mogadishu, thousands of people gathered to watch 50 men stone Aisho Ibrahim Dhuhulow to death according to the sentence of an Islamic court imposing Sharia law. Local Islamist leader Sheikh Hayakallah said the woman wanted the punishment.
Hayakallah said Aisho Ibrahim Dhuhulow asked for it: “Our sister Aisha asked the Islamic Sharia court in Kismayo to be charged and punished for the crime she committed. She admitted in front of the court to engaging in adulterous sexual intercourse.” He added “She was asked several times to review her confession but she stressed that she wanted Sharia law and the deserved punishment to apply.” I feel much better. This is called legal progress in the medieval world of Sharia law in countries like Somalia, Iran, and Pakistan.
