An affair to remember

One of the stranger stories you might hear from the UAE:

A camel has been condemned to death after a worker was caught having sex with it in the remote emirate of Ras Al Khaimah. The man, a Bangladeshi driver, was sentenced to three months in jail for his dangerous liaisons. His employer reported him to the authorities after spotting him making regular visits to the camel barn, Gulf News reported.

Ras Al Khaimah is one of the poorer and more traditional sheikhdoms that make up the seven United Arab Emirates, and its judiciary tends to be more conservative than its neighbours’ (Dubai is about an hour’s drive away). Reports said authorities ordered the camel to be killed in accordance with Islamic or sharia law, because its meat was considered tainted by the man’s performances.

Surely the camel was just minding its own business? Why does it get condemned to death?

  1. Who knows? We may laugh but when you consider how rape victims are often treated in Islamic countries is this that big a shock?

  2. You have a point…ive not been to Ras Al Khaimah but Sharjah is pretty similar. In Dubai they would probably let you off. lol (if one is into that kind of thing)

  3. This is ridiculous and so silly…
    First of all, sex with a camel!! why? why not with a dog or something else, you think it would be easy for a man to control a CAMEL.. don’t be stupid!!

    Second and more important, rape victims are never condemned in Islam or in Islamic countries, you better not talk about things that you are not aware of. In fact, anybody that commits rape in Islam is well punished to prevent more victims.
