This Video clip depicts the scene of a Sudanese girl receiving blows whip all over her body at a police station in Khartoum this week, a wave of condemnation by the Sudanese on the Internet and newspapers concluding that, what happened was exceeding the legal punishment and much amounted to physical torture and severe humiliation. The film shows the police carry out the punishment of flogging with a whip on the Sudanese girl in front of a crowd of people. The Girl received blows whip all over her body from the legs, back, arms and head wildly and violently. The girl was crying and lying on the ground squirming in pain, begging the policeman to stop hitting her, before another officer assisted him and participated in the beating. It appears through the person who filmed the scene, if not one of the policemen, he should be well known to them.
Hundreds of responses to the sites and electronic forums on the World Wide Web described the incident heinous and barbaric crime, and condemned to be in the name of Islam and Shariah.
Repeated complaints of citizens in the Sudan from the excesses of the police and the power of the public order police to arrest people and bring them to trial on various charges. This confirms what happened recently when public order policemen arrested a group of men involved in the fashion show and bring them to trial and convicted them.
Lubna Ahmed Hussein, a journalist from Sudan in an earlier meeting with the media said that the trials of public order print minimalism, where the accused does not get a chance to defend him/ herself, this is what happened to her also. And that all procedures are performed on the same day of the hearing, trial and execution. Her
Lubna said, "that the painful thing is the silence of women who are subjected to beatings and humiliation by the police for fear of scandal, because the community is always blamed on the woman victim, not the executioner".
According to many Sudanese surveyed by some newspapers about their opinions of the video, concluded that, the Sudanese government is using Islamic law and public order police to suppress and intimidate people, including ownership of tools such as the General Security Service, who exercise the arrest and torture to intimidate political opponents. They, unanimously, agreed that the next referendum in Southern Sudan and the possibility of separation may be a reason for the government of Sudan trying to tighten its grip on society and the street to block any resistance to the government of Omar al-Bashir, who was charged with genocide by the International Criminal Court.
Islamic law has been applied for the first time in the Sudan under the regime of former dictator Jaafar Nimeiri in 1983, following a popular uprising in Sudan in April 1985 the Sudanese parties failed to agree on the abolition of Islamic laws. Following the coup, the National Islamic Front, led by President Omar al-Bashir has been working on all levels to turn Sudan into an Islamic country
