02.03.2010 – W. T. F?!?!? – Rape Victim Receives 101 Lashes for becoming pregnant!
Seriously? WTF! What the FUCK is this world coming to when the VICTIM of a rape is the one punished. I mean, I realize that this sort of thing has been going on for millenia, but c’mon…it’s two-thousand-freaking-TEN! Can’t we all agree that it’s time to move past these barbaric laws that are based on the superstitions writen down by uneducated sheppards living in the bronze age? I guess not!
According to the article:
Her rapist was pardoned by the elders.
So basically, the victim takes the entire fall for the rape. What would have happened if she had fought off the rapist? Death penalty for her? It is truly sad that stuff like this still happens in our world.
