Accussing women

The Quran states that if a man deliberately accuses a woman of procreating outside marriage, he can be punished up to 80 lashes.

Sura Nur 24.4, "And those who accuse free women then do not bring four witnesses, flog them, (giving) eighty stripes, and do not admit any evidence from them ever; and these it is that are the transgressors."
