Maybe so it aligns with blood money calculations.

In accordance with Sharia law, if one causes the death or injury of another person accidentally or intentionally, he or she has to pay blood money or diya. The blood money is to be paid to the victim's family as compensation. Whilst, in principle, the amount is meant to fixed for males and female it often varies by nationality / religion etc
