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?
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.
Islamic Barbarians sentence rape victim to 12 years in jail
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.
If rape happens, it is the fault of the woman. –
That’s why under the purest of Islamic law, rape victims are hanged, lashed or imprisoned and attackers are let off with cautions or lesser punishments.

Jailed Afghan rape victim has sentence reduced, remains in jail
By Nick Paton Walsh, CNN
Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) — Afghan prosecutors announced Wednesday that a young rape victim, jailed for adultery after reporting the crime and pushed into marrying her attacker, would have her sentence reduced from twelve to three years. The prosecutor said she would, for now, remain in jail — with her child — for not reporting her attack fast enough.
In a remarkable case that is all too common in Afghanistan but has drawn international attention, 21-year-old Gulnaz was attacked by a relative two years ago, but sentenced to 12 years in jail for adultery.
She has since given birth to a girl from the attack. Because of the dishonor of sex outside of wedlock, she had been given the choice of marrying her attacker to get out of jail and legitimize her infant daughter in the eyes of Afghanistan’s conservative society.
