Tortured Child Bride, 15, Rescued From Toilet Prison After Husband’s Family Mutilated Her For Refusing To Work As Prostitute

22

No one should be surprised by this. It's in the quran. "Good women are obedient….As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them." — quran 4:34

And the child marriage is in imitation of the prophet Moe's consummation of his marriage to Aisha when he was 54 and she was nine.

So women are being treated as commodities in Afghanistan? And what else is new?

The tortured child bride: Horrific ordeal of Afghan girl, 15, rescued from toilet prison after husband's family mutilated her for refusing to work as a prostitute Daily Mail (hat tip Sophie)

A teenage Afghan girl was brutally tortured, beaten and locked in a toilet by her husband's family for five months after she refused to become a prostitute, it emerged today.

Sahar Gul, 15, was in critical condition when she was rescued from a house in northern Baghlan province last week, after her neighbours reported hearing Miss Gul crying and moaning in pain.

According to police in Baghlan, her in-laws pulled out her nails and hair, and locked her in a dark basement bathroom for about five months, with barely enough food and water to survive.

Her husband's family also burned the teenager with cigarettes and cut out chunks of her flesh with pliers.

Despite being barely able to speak, Miss Gul managed to tell media about the terrifying ordeal.

'For several months I was locked up in a toilet by my in-laws and particularly my mother-in-law,' she said.

'I was denied food and water. I was tortured and beaten.'

Doctors say the youngster has suffered both mentally and physically and will need weeks of treatment in order to recover.

'She was married seven months ago, and was originally from Badakhshan province. Her in-laws tried to force her into prostitution to earn money,' Rahima Zarifi, head of women's affairs in Baghlan told Reuters.

Miss Gul is covered in scars and bruises, with one eye still swollen shut six days after her rescue.

She is being treated in a government hospital in Kabul, but she may have to be sent to India, doctors said.

'This is one of the worst cases of violence against Afghan women. The perpetrators must be punished so others learn a lesson,' health minister Suraya Dalil told journalists after visiting Miss Gul today with the women's affairs minister.

Mohammad Zia, a senior police official in Baghlan, who helped to rescue the girl, said Miss Gul's mother-in-law and sister-in-law have been detained, but her husband and father-in-law had escaped.

'We have launched a serious hunt to get her husband and the others involved,' Mr Zia said.

Despite progress in women's rights and freedom since the fall of the Taliban 10 years ago, women throughout the country are still at risk of abduction, rape, forced marriage and being traded as commodity.

However it can be hard for women to escape violent situations at home, because of huge social and sometimes legal pressure to stay in marriages.

Running away from an abusive husband or a forced marriage are considered 'moral crimes,' for which women are currently imprisoned in Afghanistan.

Some rape victims have also been imprisoned, because sex outside marriage, even when the woman is forced, is considered adultery, another 'moral crime.'

    What exactly are we fighting for in Afghanistan? What is going to happen when Obama cuts and runs? This is sickening.

  • infidel4life

    Is this what our soldiers are fighting and dying for? We should either commit to completely eradicate the enemy there or pull out completely. Enough of this half-ass bullshit. Just like Vietnam, our soldiers are dying for a Commander-in-Chief who puts no value on their lives.

  • This little girl is very strong
    She needs urgent also a psychological therapy
    To torture a 15 year-old girl … throw out her nails
    ISLAM IS 100% PURE EVIL WITH ZERO HUMANITY
    24:2 “(adulterers) flog with 100 stripes”
    24:4 “(rape victimes) who cannot show FOUR MALE witnesses
    will be seen as adultatry, and punished by the coward lunatic Allah
    with 80 stripes”
    24:13 “…four (male) witnesses to prove it?”

  • Hilarious how some of you use any opportunity to blame Obama for anything. I guess he had a serious beef with this 15 year old. How many years were we doing nothing in Afghanistan under Bush?

  • Zuzana

    here it ishttp://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Ffeature%3Dplayer_embedded%26v%3D295yefSev-U&h=rAQFljqPBAQGMTkWiPd62UbNS8irKX2yqbWMMqImTXp36wA recorded as they bring her to the hospital. Authentic. I believe it is Liz Phelan, translating into English, I recognize her voice. She also did a great witness commentary onthe UNnecessary NATO bombing Lybia.

  • Lonestar,
    I don’t think anyone here is blaming Obama for Afghanistan. I echo the sentiments, what the hell are we doing there? Bring them home already.
    What strategic interest do we have in that country?

  • MA02169

    Sooooo! There you go again. Disrespecting Islam. Misunderstanding Islam.
    Islam is peace, and love, and very tolerant.
    And Muslim women are treated with the highest respect. Islamic women are much better off than Jewish, or Christian women.
    And with regard to this girl. She probably brought all of this on herself. She was probably wearing sexy eye make-up, and sexy western underwear under her Burka. And nail polish.
    So the next time I see Obama, I am going to tell him just how mean you are being.
    Shame on you for not respecting Islam.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    JUST KIDDING! ISLAM, AND OBAMA BOTH SUCK!

    Women are dangerous, especially to other women. There is a thing called jealousy that they use that will tear people to shreds. Apparantly, Islam aids and abets this spirit of spitefullness to other women. If a girl comes along who is sweet and pretty and who men like, the women wil try to make her into a whore or destroy her. Then men don’t seem to care much, they just look the other way.
    Obviously not all of the Afghanistanis are that bad, because they did rescue this girl and are trying to help her now. What a horrible thing to have happen, and for people to think is normal and their right to do though. Young people can usually survive terrible trauma better than older people. They are more resiliant. What happens to the older women who are treated like nothing more than disobediant garbage? Do they have any future or hope in this world?
    Is this stupid country going to make her go back with her husband now, so that she is not committing adultery, like they do in Pakistan? How are women safe there at all? Weren’t we told that we were invading there to protect the women? How has it helped at all?
    She has good morals, that is why she said no to being a prostitute, even despite torture and abuse. Good morals give you strength to survive. Not everyone is willing to take on the yoke of a slave, no matter how much those around them wish them to do so. You can call a person whatever you want, but in their heart, they know different.
    Where was her family during all of this? Did they just sell her off and forget her?

  • fern

    Poor poor child.
    I hope this child is in safe hands now and will speedily recover from her scars and horrific ordeal. Mental scars will live with her forever though.
    :( [through tears of sorrow and anger, sending Sahar a cyber hug]
    Islam=barbaric, demonic, evil ideology.

  • Vuse

    ” but her husband and father-in-law had escaped” COWARDS.
    This 15 year old girl has more courage in her little finger than these brutal animals they are not men) could ever have even if they were given eternity to learn what true courage is, again COWARDS.

  • Georg von Starkermann

    This is indeed very sad to see this young girl be treated in this inhumane manner. Every left wing woman’s organization including the entire US Democratic Party should condemn this type of behaviour. Hilary Clinton most of all this come out and say that this is wrong.

  • Brandy

    Wish I could bring her here to live with my family. She would never be treated in such a way. It amazes me what people are able to do to other people. Sick!

  • Betty

    GOD will have his revenge on those that did this to her. they will before the true GOD and not to allah. GOD keep her safe is my prayer

  • YOU JUST CAN’T HELP BUT TO ADMIRE THIS IDEOLOGY OF PEACE …..HEAVENLY , IS’NT IT ?

  • dan

    What makes you think they are not doing this in Europe and North America?
    Muzzies in Minneapolis were doing this too. Grabbing white girls under age off the street. Don’t the Somalis get an honorable mention?

  • This could have been Rifqa. I think I hear God weeping.
    But seriously, how can this be intellectually connected to Islam? I don’t know of anything in the Shariah that permits turning your wife into a prostitute or torturing her for not. This sounds like plain old evil.
    Oh wait… I think I just made the connection.

  • Roshan Mansoor

    dear hypocrates:
    Dont blame Islam for it. ISLAM condemns such things. If you think that this thing happened due to Islam then why was she rescued. the rescue team were also muslims. the ministers, the government authorities who visited her and condemn this act were all muslims. SO PLEASE SHUT YOUR MOUTH AGAINST ISLAM. TORTURING is completely forbidden in Islam. I admit that we have a dirty CULTURE. these things and like these cases many others are suffering due to cultural issues. I am an Afghan and I admit that we have a DIRTY, anti human culture. May Allah help us to vanish this dirty culture. SO PLEASE DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN ISLAM AND CULTURE.

    ParahSalin-And just how much of the quran have YOU studied?? Obviously, NOT much, if any – -it has been “re-written” (so I’m told) so that everything in it is violent, disgusting, evil and ugly. So, DON”T try to tell US what islam approves, or forbids – -WE ALREADY KNOW AND WE DON’T WANT ANY OF IT (or them)IN THE USA! If YOU like it so much, then move to Afghanistan, or shut the hell up!

  • June

    ParahSalin-Correction, you say you’re “Afghan” – -just STAY THERE and DON”T try to tell US how “wonderful” you’re NOT!

  • I like that they did save this youthful lady and are trying to help her now. What a dreadful element to have occur, and for individuals to think is regular and their right to do though. Youth can usually endure dreadful tension better than the elderly.

  • This is serious going to create their go again with their partner now, so that they are not spending infidelity, like they do in other country. Females secure there at all.

  • Radz

    My heart goes for that child, those criminals who did that to her should be sentenced for attempted murder, legally.
    I see a very big connection bet. that case and cases of child sex slavery in Mexico, but i really don’t see- and will never like to see- anyone blaming Christianity for it, or beginning their article w/ “Don’t be surprised it’s in the Bible”.
    So before Interpreting anything frm a religious book, Spend sometime Understanding it, as much as you spend time Translating it to a Hate speech, and Blaming a religion for the actions that are clearly INSANE and Inhuman. If u were some writer in a Newspaper u’d have been sued by nw, thnk god u’re jst some blogger.
