Post Pakistan village council orders 'revenge rape' of girl

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-40731035

Some 20 people from Multan, Pakistan, have been arrested for ordering the rape of a teenage girl, in revenge for a rape her brother allegedly committed.

Police said the families of the two girls are related.

Members of both had joined forces to decide what should be done.

"A jirga [village council] had ordered the rape of a 16-year-old girl as punishment, as her brother had raped a 12-year-old," police official Allah Baksh told AFP.

He said the village council was approached earlier this month by a man who said his 12-year-old sister had been raped by their cousin.

The council then ordered the complainant to rape the sister of the accused in return - which police say he did.



Probably not a topic that will inspire much surprise or discussion, but I always feel the need to react to such barbaric bullshit.

Perhaps I can recontextualise it to generate more reactions...

Same inane bullshit as in the Bible, where one person pays for the crimes committed by another. Sin transmitted endlessly from father to son, begotten in ancient history, and penalized for today. Jesus' big deal is how he 'sacrificed' himself to pay for our sins, as if that represents justice!

This again shows how the modern world has improved dramatically in terms of moral behavior and reasoning comparative to the past, and comparative to places where religion still holds autocratic sway.
If a human disagrees with you, let him live! In a hundred billion galaxies you will not find another!

I'm tempted to say the more Islamic a place is the more barbaric, more inhuman and more down right evil it is, but I'd be just told that I'm racist.

But yeah, if there are some people who truly deserve an asylum in the West it's people like this girl.
