Maldives! You too?

I thought the people of the Maldives living in the middle of beautiful blue ocean, were busy with swimming, fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, water-skiing, windsurfing. They would not be contaminated with the filth of the mainland. But I am wrong. Maldives punished a girl for being raped. Its Islamic laws harass , oppress , torture women.

A 15-year-old rape victim has been sentenced to 100 lashes for engaging in premarital sex, court officials said.

The charges against the girl were brought against her last year after police investigated accusations that her stepfather had raped her and killed their baby. He is still to face trial.

The legal system of the Maldives, an Islamic archipelago with a population of some 400,000, has elements of Islamic law (Sharia) as well as English common law.

Ahmed Faiz, a researcher with Amnesty International, said flogging was “cruel, degrading and inhumane” and urged the authorities to abolish it.

“We are very surprised that the government is not doing anything to stop this punishment – to remove it altogether from the statute books.”

“This is not the only case. It is happening frequently – only last month there was another girl who was sexually abused and sentenced to lashes.”

This is ridiculous! Almost all religions have been reformed. Islam is the only religion that has been forced to remain as ancient as it was. Islam is now labeled as the most intolerant, misogynistic , barbaric, pathetic, irrational, inhumane religion in the world. Peace-loving people are now afraid of the ghost of the 7th century that is still roaming around Earth.

    There’s a reason for the “Mal” in Maldives. Never mind, when the place has sunk beneath the waves, the people can go to live in Pakistan, Bangladesh or some other benighted Islamic country.

Insanity follows the path of Islam. This is the ultimate TRUTH !!

    In 2010, Mohamed Nazim allegedly “committed suicide”, though it is far more likely he was murdered. Nazim openly spoke out as an atheist and was harassed and assaulted by mobs and the “authorities” before he was killed.

    To hear that a young woman is being victimized a second time by the same regime is no surprise.

      I just read the article that you posted. The girl was so small, just a child really ( photos on the net )
      I dont know what happened in the end, if anyone got real charges against them ? At the end an innocent child was raped and then murdered in a savage way on the orders of the ”Elders” of the village, just awful.

        Hi Gordon, I know how you are feeling. I came from that country and I had many experiences watching that. That is only possible by bad religion like Islam. I am proud to be an ex-muslims!

    Islam will capture very quickly the whole world because only a muslim can never think any human difference
    under his religious teaching. Have you heard the name of Aysha mosque 2:1.Collect details of Aysha mosque know its role.

    This news report is quite unbelievable in the 21st century. To persecute a young 15 year old girl who has been raped by her own Stepfather is so savage and barabaric. It could only happen in an Islamic country.

    “Ahmed Faiz, a researcher with Amnesty International, said flogging was “cruel, degrading and inhumane” and urged the authorities to abolish it.”

    How about not ignoring the fact that they’re punishing the victim further? If you stopped that it would matter less what the punishment actually was, would it not?

    This is all a propaganda against islam. It is not about the justice for that child. Abortion is illegal in Maldives and many countries. What if a child kills a baby? You can talk in many perspectives.
