Comment 2 by Tyler Durden :

Though the country is known more for its exquisite island resorts and does not allow stoning or executions, it is under scrutiny for its absence of religious freedom and for punishments such as public flogging.

No stonings or executions? Are these the Moderate Muslims we hear so much about?

No, but public floggings of teenage girls accused of "adultery" have occurred in Male. With the full specter of a mob of jeering men.
