How many years should rape victims be jailed?

UPDATED: Jailed rape victim forced to marry her attacker

Where is the outrage? Where are the women’s rights advocates? Why to they flee when the story is one of Islam once again brutalizing women?

Barbaric.

KABUL—Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Thursday pardoned an Afghan woman serving a 12-year prison sentence for having sex out of wedlock after she was raped by a relative.

Karzai’s office said in a statement that the woman and her attacker have agreed to marry. That would reverse an earlier decision by the 19-year-old woman, who had previously refused a judge’s offer of freedom if she agreed to marry the rapist.

Sharia? Islamic values and standards? Just say, “No thanks!”

Get one thing straight before you read this story, friends – there is nothing unusual here, for the vast majority of women imprisoned in Afghanistan and other Muslim countries are victims. It’s the same in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and everywhere else where Islamic laws and standards are the basis of society.

Under Islamic law and culture, it is the duty of the women prevent rape and adultery by covering themselves and never going about alone. Young Bajan students are taught this in our Al-Falah Islamic School. You don’t have to believe us on this, just listen to the young Bajan Muslim women repeating this warped concept for themselves.
