Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is one of the strongest proponent of Shariah-based Islamic Laws.
Did it have any effect on the crime statistics of the country?
How effective have the criminal laws in Saudi Arabia been to keep the crime-rate low? Or, have the criminal laws not been effective?
Can you think of any country that has a comparable socioeconomic environment to KSA and has been successful in keeping their crime-rate low without using religious-based Laws?
