But to protest the 100-lash sentence is to protest Islam. According to the Qur'an (24:2), the penalty for fornication is 100 lashes. In order to accuse someone of a sexual sin (such as rape), the accuser must produce four male witnesses (Qur'an 24:4). If the accuser can't produce four male witnesses, the man can't be charged with rape. And if he can't be charged with rape, the girl is stuck with her admission that illicit sex has taken place (which she admitted when she accused him of rape). Hence, she will be given 100 lashes for fornication.
Welcome to Sharia.
