An Indian village council ordered a harsh punishment for a 13-year-old rape victim. The young girl was brutally whipped by a senior council member after it was learned that she was raped by her drunk father.
The scene is common among communities that practice Sharia Law. A woman is raped, but instead of the perpetrator being punished, the woman is usually beat or worse, stoned to death.
In this case, the little girl was viciously whipped for being the victim of sexual abuse at the hand of her own father. The scene was secretly captured on a cellphone and shows the barbaric ways that Muslims who practice Sharia Law oppress their women.
In the captured video, one of the old men wags his finger angrily at the young girl and demands that she be punished for the horrific action her father committed. According to the Muslim council that issued the ruling, the girl had “enticed” her drunk father into raping her.
The young girl bowed her head as the punishment was carried out. It began by a villager tying a rope around her waist. After the child was secure, he lifted a tree branch high into the air and began giving her lashes, lifting the branch high above his head each time before hitting her on her backside.
Murmurs from the witnessing crowd soon began, “Enough, enough” as the beating continued. In all, the girl received a total of ten lashes for the crime of being near her father while he was drinking. Finally, the man threw down his stick. The beating was over.
There is only one culture in the world where a child can be found guilty of a crime where the father is admittedly responsible. This is a blatant injustice and should be against international law, but the most grievous crime is that the little girl was returned to her father. She was sentenced to a lifetime of knowing that there is nobody there to protect her, not even her father.
