Saudi Men Get 2,000 Lashes And Ten Years In Prison For Nekked Dance
They giving out lashes for dancing nekked? Miley Cyrus wouldn’t last a day in that country.
According to The NY Daily News
Four men, two of them identified as security officials, have been convicted of dancing ‘nekked’ in public and ordered to spend up to 10 years behind bars and receive as many as 2,000 lashes, according to several local reports.
The quartet were captured on video after busting loose on a car roof in the ultra-conservative province of Qassim.
They were sentenced last week. One received 10 years in prison and 2,000 lashes. Another got seven years and 1,200 lashes.
The other two were ordered to serve three years and to receive 500 lashes each.
They were charged with “dancing on a vehicle in public and posting a video online, encouraging vice, defying norms of the society and violating public morals,” according to the Arabic-language Al Sharq web site.
But Agence France-Press reported that the video, originally posted on YouTube, didn’t appear to show the men undressed.
On Monday, the video apparently had been removed.
Their azzes are going to be super sore.
