Last July during Ramadan, a French woman was arrested for rubbing and making 'socks' from the Quran to cover her feet. Her feet were in pain and two mischievous locals had said using the Quran would help with the pain. It was definitely a strange occurrence. Her mental state was questioned and she was arrested. Desecrating the Quran is a crime in Oman. Last week, the Sohar Primary Court issued a verdict of three years jail time and 100 OMR fine for the crime. This is the maximum penalty for jail time. She still has the option to appeal and pay 300 OMR bail.
