← [UPDATE 14-Nov] 100 lashes for buttock squeeze or for not dying laughing?

Why are they both getting 100 lashes?

As far as I can see from the film, no 13 (he of the assaulted bum) was the "victim" was unaware, looking the other way, and as soon as the assault happened he tried to swat away the offender.

I can understand that under sharia law, were he a woman, this would be more than enough evidence to stone him death for "adultery" (two more in Afghanistan today, for "moral deviation"), but come on - he's a male and therefore self-evidently innocent.
