Slander, nonetheless, is a great sin and has hurt many people.

This is completely true. Also, on the matter of adultery and fornication (be it consenting or not), many verses in the Qur'an point toward having 4 male ocular witnesses to the act. If you accuse someone* of adultery, fornication, rape, sexual indecency or anything else of that nature without the required amount of witnesses, according to the islamic law, you are deemed as a slanderer, the punishment being 80 lashes, and you will not be considered a reliable witness ever again.

The rulings are crystal clear and are found in the Qur'an itself: there's no need to whine and cry about how women have it harder since this applies to both men and women alike. Interesting fact about that case: according to the Shari'a, the woman is entirely in the wrong because she accused the man of rape without producing 4 witnesses, and would deserve 80 lashes.

Please do keep a cool head about stuff like this, or if you can't, abstain from pronouncing your opinions on the matter. Passing a judgment with the utmost respect to truth and the rights of each and every party is an incredibly arduous task to do, and can only be undertaken by the qualified people who have an extensive knowledge of every single Qur'anic verse and hadith of the Masoomeen (as) on the subject at hand.

Wa Salam.

*Married people accusing their wives/husband, however, may testify without the need to have witnesses, the ruling being specified in surah nur, verses 6 to 10.

Leaving aside the particulars of this case, in Ireland women are allowed to wear what they like and men are not allowed rape anyone under any circumstances. It is clear and there is no confusion about it. This case is controversial because, at least as it has been presented, it challenged this simple common sense assumption. Men are responsible for their own behavior.

Hello this is not true there is rules for clothing everywhere in the world and Ireland is not an exception. And again I didn't justify any rape I just said that women must not be naive when they say choose what to wear and of course men who rape are 1000x worst than women who wear some kind of clothes.

both sides are responsible beside dress code in islam specially Shia islam both men & women beside wearing cloths by dress code also must consider discipline & behavior just wearing Abayah for women or wearing traditional arabaic garment for men don't make them modest persons , women must behave & walk modest and don't use such perfumes that attracts people specially men & men must control their gaze & their intention of looking.

this is a problem that women that women just wear modest but their action & smell is attracting for men same as men that maybe they wear islamic dress code but by  eye are looking for all type women.

Back to the OP:

l Iooked up several articles, but what l can't find is "how" the accused is allegedly to have seen her thong? Was she even wearing something over them?

And NO, l ain't being crude. Last Spring l think it was, a woman was in the local supermarket and her daughter was wearing laced undies which l could see because she was wearing "laced night dress" (l had to Iook that up). l couldn't figure out what-is-wrong-with-this-picture for a second as they were over in the check-out line.

Also, about thirty years ago, there was a woman down the street who use to run around in her underwear --outside.

According to this, they were lying in the muddy alleyway, she was wearing a dress.

I don't know all the facts of the case, so I'm not going to try to get to a verdict (although I'm more inclined to think he is guilty). The reason why  I started this thread was because of the outrageous argument presented by the defence. An item of clothing does not signify consent.

0ne of the public discussions in the early 1970s was if what a girl wore was an enticement or provocative.

The following is a true story.

A man is at a beach and sees a female in a bikini.  The man catcalls the female.

The female goes and calls her fiance and tells him this man was catcalling her.

Fiance goes to the beach and kills the man.

Take this case at an Islamic court, what would be the ruling of who is at fault?  All of them being Muslim.

"Fault" is not an excuse for murder or manslaughter.

Buddy, we are dealing with zombies here. The topic keeps changing course constantly, which implies that the majority cannot comprehend the true objective.

some of the females here are not interested in facts, they keep inferring their childish emotions and claiming that there is as some form of righteous indignation.

The fact was, a female defense lawyer somehow got the alleged victims underwear as evidence?.

if not : the male is claiming that this is what she wore, he would have not known it, if it was rape in a muddied alleyway. Alleyways are generally have low lighting

I'm regularly out and about at night. Do you mean their revealing clothes lure rapists into committing their crimes?

Well, geegolly, let me think. Hyper aggressive male who is in a heightened sexual mode. observers two women of the same height, body language, one is dressed with light clothing the other with jeans and a coat. Who do you think his target will be?. The one where he can rip the cloths of far easily or not?. Do you actually use that head of yours to think?.

There is a substantial body of indirect evidence suggesting that sexual attractions occur with increased frequency during states of strong emotion. For example, heterosexual
love has been observed to be associated both with hate (James, 1910; Suttie, 193S) and with pain (Ellis, 1936). A connection between "aggression" and sexual attraction is
supported by Tinbergen's (1954) observations of intermixed courting and aggression behaviors in various animal species, and a series of experiments conducted by Barclay
have indicated the existence of a similar phenomenon in human behavior.
Plenty of research out there, but as usual no one is interested in fact, they are driven by emotions.

This thread calls for justice and fairness for the victim.

she is not a victim. The court acquitted the male. If you are claiming she is victim because a female lawyer used underwear as potential evidence and feelings got hurt, then we must examine all forms of evidence ever being used as evidence. Case close.

This discussion is still carrying on to this day and age. Even among Muslims who blurt out a silly and baseless rhetoric, which is deemed both haram and immoral.

Ok I get it, the unfortunate hyper-aggressive male would go home quietly if these temptresses would only dress defensively or, even better, stay at home

Why do we have such low expectations and low standards for males? I've never been one so I don't know: are you guys really so weak and pathetic that you can't control yourselves? If so, I am so glad to be a woman!

He will probably be going to Walla Walla, a prison that is over 100 years old and known for some very violent offenders, located in the north western US. 

His education on the power, control and opportunity of rape has probably already begun.  

And I am sure that what he is wearing will not help him.
