1.3 million signatures on petition to Stop Flogging Rape Victims in The Maldives!

Maldives Holiday

Sign the petition to Stop Flogging Rape Victims in The Maldives!

15-year-old rape victim sentenced to be whipped 100 lashes in public

We at Barbados Free Press can’t understand why any thinking person would head to The Maldives for a vacation. They flog 15 year old rape victims for being raped, they simply hate western infidels and if you bring a Bible to the place you are likely to be put in jail or beaten.

Nice place for a vacation, indeed.

A few days ago we told you of another Maldives horror story about a 15 year old victim of incest, but it’s worse than we heard. Her step-father raped her for years and then when she became pregnant and had a baby, the step father murdered the child.

Then the Islamic Court sentenced HER to 100 lashes for having sex outside of marriage – for being raped by her step-father.

Frankly, that’s a very typical sentence from a typical Islamic court.

Now AVAAZ.org has created an online petition and they are up to almost 1.4 million signatures in only a few days – and when you watch the scrolling ‘recent signers’ column you’ll see a new name every few seconds.

To President Mohammed Waheed Hassan:

As concerned global citizens, we call on you to do more to protect vulnerable women and children. We welcome your government’s initial intervention in the case of the 15-year-old rape victim, but real justice will only be delivered when you end the practice of flogging in the Maldives, and change the law so that it better protects the victims of rape and sexual abuse.

  2. Amazing!!!

    Go to the site and watch the petitioners coming in from all over the world
    by the second.

    It’s a pity someone hasn’t called for a fatwa on the President?

    Incidents of this nature really speaks to the prophecy in the Bible of Revelation in Hebrew Scriptures. I listen to a Christian program every morning that is called Voice of the Martyn, that advocates for the rights of persecuted people in these far a places in the world. And you would be surprise to hear about some of the egregious acts of cruelty, some of these distance countries are charge with.

  4. raper

    They should do a petition about the women being raped in Barbados.

  5. donkeyowner

    KANT donkey Fenty, there is no act more cruel in this world than reading your torturous scribbling…be a good donkey and go eat some hay you braying ass.

  6. Primitive societies!!

    Oh but it’s their “culture” don’t you know!

    lol at deliberately backward societies/belief/systems

  7. I thought I had read it wrong, that they wanted to stop the flogging of rapists in the Maldives. Well, it is a typically Muslim thing. You flog the woman instead. It is much like Christianity blaming the Snake and the Woman in the Garden of Eden, for the fall of man.
