Arab countries known for strict laws

Qatar is not the only country with such strict rules in place. Such rules are common under Saria law in most Arab countries. Sex before marriage and with anyone other than the husband or wife is considered a major crime. For this, punishment ranging from whipping to jail and death is given in different countries of the Middle East.

Saudi Arab- In Saudi Arabia, having sex with a non-male or female is punishable by stoning to death. Whereas there is a provision for hundred whipping to virgins for this. For this no distinction is made between a boy and a girl.

Iran- Here too, the death penalty is given for having a relationship other than marriage. Before 2013, this punishment was given by stoning. But in 2013, by making a law, options like hanging for death were adopted.

United Arab Emirates- In this matter, the law here is a little softer than the rest of the Arab countries. In the United Arab Emirates, it can be punished with imprisonment from 6 months to a few years, depending on the seriousness of the crime.

India- On the other hand, in our country India, boys and girls above 18 years of age can have sex with each other. Some time ago, the Supreme Court also decriminalized homosexuality and non-husband-wife relations. No punishment can be given for this.

There is a rule of punishment in the Indian Army

After the order of the Supreme Court, even though adultery may not be a crime for civilians, but the Indian Army still considers it a crime. The army considers the relation of an army soldier with the wife of another soldier as indiscipline.
