Death by marriage

Posted in child abuse,child bride,Islam,rape,religion,The Evil that Men do,women by Save the Women! on April 14, 2010

There is another tragic news item, this time the yemeni ”husband” of a 12 year young girl raped her to death.
She died three days after her marriage of internal bleeding of the ruptures to her body caused by the inhumane ”consumation” of her sexual slavery marriage.

The girl was married to a man at least twice her age, said Sigrid Kaag, UNICEF regional director for the Middle East and North Africa.
Her death is “a painful reminder of the risks girls face when they are married too soon,” Kaag said Thursday.

Amal Basha, chairwoman of the Sisters Arab Forum for Human Rights, a Yemeni human rights group, identified the girl Friday as Elham Mahdi.  “Elham was married on March 29th and died three days later” and lived in Yemen’s Hajjah province, Basha said.

The husband, complaining he could not ”consumate” the marriage asked a medical facility to tranquillise the girl so she could no longer resist his advances. They refused. He is reported to have tied her down. After which he was able to  rape her.  He took her to the clinic the next day because she was unable to walk.

Dr. Fathiya Haidar, a doctor at the clinic, told the Associated Press that she had suffered significant injury and “I told him not to go near her for at least ten days.” Elham may have been raped again after this clinic visit, as a post-mortem forensics examination showed much more extensive injury than what was reported by the clinic.

    Let’s just clarify the order of events here:

    – The man marries a child – No government official or law stops him
    – He shows up at a clinic to get her tranquillizers so he can have sex with her – The clinic refuse to give the drugs, but still let an unstable man walk off with the little girl. The thought that he may do something bad to her was never a consideration. She is his property after all according to the law.
    – He shows up to the clinic with a child that cannot walk as a result of forced sex and signs of being tied down (making it rape in anyone’s book) – The police is not called and the man walks away again with the child. Remember these are Doctors and health-care professionals, who should be the most sensitive of all people to human suffering. If this is not a sign that she is property in the norms of the people and law I do not know what is.
    – The girl dies – There is no information about charges brought against the man

    This is one of the most sickening stories. The system failed this child tragically many times. How many of these stories do we have to hear before child marriages are outlawed and cases like these are treated as child rape and murder.

[…] Death by marriage (via Save the Women!) 죄없는 한 여자 아이가 얼굴도 모르는 할아버지뻘의 추악한 남자에게 결혼이라는 명목하에 팔려가서 움직이지 못할 정도로 성폭행을 당하고 결국에는 죽고 말았다. 정말 이 글을 읽으면서 너무나 마음이 아팠다. 인간의 죄성의 끝을 보여주는 사례가 아닐까 싶다. 저 소중한 아이가 처참하게 죽어나가기까지 주변 사람들은 왜 방관자밖에 되지 못했을까. 어느정도로 궁핍하면 어린자식을 돈과 바꿀수 있을까. 그것이 문화라면 도데체 이런 짐승만도 못한 문화는 어디서 부터 어떻게 시작된 것일까. 왜 걷지도 못할정도로 성폭행을 당한 아이가 병원에 왔는데 의사는 남편에게 열흘동안 부인의 근처에 가지말라는 말 한마디 뿐이였을까. 2010년 최첨단 시대에 살고 있는 지금 왜 아직도 지구 반대편에선 이렇게 어처구니 없고 비도덕적인 일들이 당연한것처럼 행해지고 있을까.

    Hmmmm oddly enough you don’t see the Women’s Rights and NOW in American protesting this. Don’t hear much of this on the main stream media, either. In fact the feminist organizations seem to SUPPORT Islam. Why the hypocrisy?


    • I think people in the west are too uninformed about the horrible life women in saudi arabia are forced to lead. the total absence of human rights, the fact that all women are virtually slaves.
      Also I think it is high time the west wakes up from their fuzzy multi cultural delusion.

      I fully agree with you. Western femists have completely betrayed their Arab and Muslim sisters.
