A girl is repeatedly raped by her father in law and other men. So what does the Islamic nation of the Maldives do? They sentence the girl to 100 lashes because she had sex outside of marriage.
HERE’S WHAT WE MUST DO: NEVER TRAVEL TO THE MALDIVES, AND DISCOURAGE EVERYONE YOU KNOW FROM TRAVELING THERE. THEIR CASH COW IS TOURISM. HIT THE GOVERNMENT WHERE IT HURTS!
