Pakistan Village Elders orders rape of 17-year old after her brother defiled 12-year old

The room where the second victim was raped

The police in the Pakistani town of Muzaffarabad which is close to Multan has arrested 20 persons following two sexual assaults in the area.

The sad case is that after a 12-year old girl was raped while cutting grass in the field, the village elders ordered that the 17-year old sister of the rapist be made to face the same fate.

According to police report, the first victim reported the rape to her mother who then reported to village elders.

“(The second victim)’s two elder sisters were initially called, but the elders decided that (17-year-old) Victim B would be the one to take the punishment. Her mothers and sisters all protested this but the elders brought out their guns and threatened to kill them,” the police report said.

Speaking to CNN, the Muzaffarabad Station House officer Rashid Faheem said that investigation is ongoing, adding that more raids will be carried out.

According to Salman Sufi, the director of Violence Against Women Centre in Multan, the mothers of both victims had come to the centre with their daughters after the two incidents.

“Medical examinations have been conducted on both of them and they have confirmed that both girls were raped,” Sufi said.

He said that the first victim and her mother came to the centre three days after the second victim had arrived with her mother on July 19.

The centre, which opened in March 2017, had received 38 cases of rape in that region alone, Sufi said adding that “the Punjab government will make sure that this case will go to court and that justice will be done.”

Rape and honour killings as a form of punishment are not new in Pakistan.

CNN reports that in 2002, then-28 year old Mukhtar Mai was gang raped on the orders of a tribal court — a jirga — after her brother was accused of having a sexual relationship with an older woman in another tribe.

The Punjab governor later found him to be wrongly accused.

Mai told CNN in 2013: “First of all, there was the rape, and afterwards when I tried to call the police, I received death threats that I would be killed if I went to a police station.”

A Pakistani social media star Qandeel Baloch was killed in July 2016 by her brother, who believed she was “bringing dishonor to (his) family.”

When her brother was arrested, he told the police that he had no regrets.

The Pakistani government had also said that persons guilty of honour killings will serve at least 25 years being bars, adding that the rape of minors will be punishable by death.

    What sort of jungle law is this! Punishing an innocent girl for the sins of her brother. So they couldn’t just castrate the idiot for his actions. No! They left him still with a functioning penis and proceeded to put a young girl through a traumatising ordeal.

    What is wrong with the men of this world? Is it a crime to be born a woman? We are the ones likely to be victims, we are also the ones likely to bear the consequences. We obviously cannot win with men. Shame!

    Wa ghe 0!!! You did not catch the rapist, he walked away freely… instead you said the same thing should be done to the elder sister, i seem not to get it, in the elders warped thinking is this Justice or collateral damage???, the rapist is still walking free and if he rapes another you will come again and say they should rape his elder sister and if he continues the elder sister continues to receive different sizes, sick bastards!!! “Oh Wisdom where did you run to why have you abandoned us?” This is madness!

    Only the parents of the boy who refused to give him adequate home training are to blame for this. The girl is a victim of family stupidity in raising a responsible young man and society’s total lack of confidence in governments. How swiftly those men were arrested shows the boy’s parents have some money. Also the way he was allowed to walk away free.

    I don’t support or pity anyone in this. A 12yr old was badly hurt and scarred for life. If they didn’t take this decision, that whole family will sweep this boys act under the carpet and move on. But now… they will always have a constant reminder of their complicity in raising and shielding a bad child.

    Seriously!! this world just needs to end!!! idiots like this are what we call “God’s mistakes”!Sometimes it seems like its a crime and curse to be born a woman!!!! why push an innocent girl for the crime of the bother? It’s traditions like this that need to be dead and its useless people who believe in such traditions that need to be eliminated from this planet!!!!
