What is a falaka?

bloodletting
foot whipping
hanging upside-down
horse pulling
This criminal is being prepared to falaka, a type of pun­ish­ment used in the Ottoman Empire and Middle East. Foot whipping is ef­fec­tive due to the clus­ter­ing of nerve endings in the feet and the struc­ture of the foot, with its numerous small bones and tendons. The wounds in­flict­ed are par­tic­u­lar­ly painful and take a long time to heal. Falaka was used for cen­turies as a way of torture and pun­ish­men­t.
