Guilt By Association

Women have a special, protected role under Islam:

A Saudi woman has been sentenced to 200 lashes and six months in prison after she was the victim of a gang rape. The ... 19-year-old Shia woman ... was in the car of a man who was not a relative at the time of the attack, which contravened strict Saudi laws on segregation..."
But men pay for their crimes too:

... a group of seven Sunni men kidnapped them and raped them both (emphasis added)... The former boyfriend was also sentenced to 90 lashes for being with her in private.
