Nigerian Woman Barely Escapes Stoning Death; Now Her Countryman Faces the Same Fate
By Alicia Johnson, Special to BET.com

Posted September 26, 2003 -- Just moments after a Nigerian woman escaped being stoned to death for adultery, her countryman was sentenced to the same fate for molesting boys.

Amina Lawal, a 32-year-old peasant woman, attracted worldwide attention when she was sentenced to die under Sharia, strict Islamic law. After months of legal battles and pleas from international human rights groups, a panel of five judges ruled 4-to-1 to spare the single mother, stating Lawal was not given "ample opportunity to defend herself."

Lawal is the second Nigerian woman to be condemned to death for having sex out of wedlock and later acquitted. The first woman, Safiya Hussaini, had her sentence overturned in March.

Sad situations in a sick world.

Many see it as "us" and "them" when it is "we".

If "we" would have acted as a worldwide nation of people then "our" sistas and brothas wouldn't victimize other victims.

Now back to reality....

Don't ya just love subjective religious laws? Makes ya feel all warm and confused inside.

This just further proves that 'religion' is man-made.

I find it interesting that the offending man in the stoning situation would not have received such a harsh sentence.....
