There are a few factors here,

Ashia was accused of adultery.

She was 16, Muhammed was 63, she was already into sex for 7 years, and was accused of having sex with another man.

It is from here muhammed proclaimed the 4 witness clause.

A woman needs 4 male muslim witnesses to defend herself against rape charges, yes, even today.

Also she is suspected of poisoning Muhammed.

She also sided with Ali, Muhammeds adopted son, in the power grab after Muhammeds death,

The power went to her father, Abu Bakr, the first Calief. and head of what would later become Sunni.

Lol, typeing before I think, Ali would later become the 4th calief, and was murdered by the sunni, and is the subject of Ashura, where the shia flog themselves.
