Sudanese court sentences girl to receive 20 lashes for wearing trousers to church


Fardos Al-Toum,19, was one of 10 young women students arrested outside an Evangelical Baptist Church in Khartoum on June 25 for wearing jeans and long shirts. Rights group Amnesty International has started an online campaign in the UK asking
people to add their name to a letter to the Sudanese authorities in support of Al-Toum.

More than 40,000 people have already done so. When Al-Toum showed up to court to answer the charge, the judge said the clothing she was wearing then was also indecent and sentenced her to an additional fine, plus 20 lashes…… ds kind of war against indiscipline shld pls b implemented in Nigeria…..
