RAPE IN ISLAM – The more things change the more they remain the same

Hamid Karzai, the so-called ‘democratic’ leader of Afghanistan, NOT THE TALIBAN, has made rape in marriage legal so as to win favor with Shia clerics in the upcoming elections.

Pakistani woman was gang raped by 14 men from the same family and has yet to receive justice. I guess she should be happy her own family didn’t honor kill her.

14-year old Afghan rape victim’s fetus aborted by her family using a razor blade.

The family of the young rape victim face prosecution after her fetus was removed without anaesthetic. The mother and brother of the girl are accused of cutting her open with a razor blade to perform an abortion.

Doctors say the girl is in a critical condition. A man accused of raping her is under arrest, officials say.

Rape victims and their families in Afghanistan often feel ashamed to report what has happened because people may think the victim consented to sex. Sex outside marriage is illegal in Afghanistan.

When the girl was five months pregnant it is alleged her mother and brother took her to a stables and cut her open with a razor blade. They removed the fetus, which they buried, before stitching up her wound, Governor Sarabi said. 

Dr Ghulam Mohammad Nader, head of Bamiyan hospital, said the girl is in a critical condition, but that she had been able to explain what had happened to her.

“The girl stayed at home for three or four days in her condition until her father took her to hospital,” Dr Nader said. “He said a dog had bitten her so that people in the area wouldn’t know what had really happened.” Police are trying to arrest her mother and brother.

Sometimes the victims are murdered by their own families. BBC
