Only 14, Bangladeshi girl charged with adultery was lashed to death
cnn ^ | 3/31/11 | Farid Ahmed and Moni Basu,

Shariatpur, Bangladesh (CNN) -- Hena Akhter's last words to her mother proclaimed her innocence. But it was too late to save the 14-year-old girl.

Her fellow villagers in Bangladesh's Shariatpur district had already passed harsh judgment on her. Guilty, they said, of having an affair with a married man. The imam from the local mosque ordered the fatwa, or religious ruling, and the punishment: 101 lashes delivered swiftly, deliberately in public.

Hena dropped after 70.

Bloodied and bruised, she was taken to hospital, where she died a week later.

Amazingly, an initial autopsy report cited no injuries and deemed her death a suicide. Hena's family insisted her body be exhumed. They wanted the world to know what really happened to their daughter.

Sharia: illegal but still practiced

Hena's family hailed from rural Shariatpur, crisscrossed by murky rivers that lend waters to rice paddies and lush vegetable fields.

"They tied her legs and started lashing her continuously. At one stage, she collapsed. But they did not stop. They forced her to stand again and continued lashing until she fainted and fell to the ground,"

I still don’t understand how her parents stood by and watch this happen to their daughter. I’d die before I would allow that to happen to my dauther.

How do they supress their maternal and paternal instincts?

This is pretty brutal stuff. It is written in a way to make you feel like you were there.

As David Horowitz writes about in his book Unholy Alliance: liberalism and Islam have socialism and victim-ism (of Muslims mainly) as common ground agreement, but they differ on the sexual liberalism/liberation of females and homosexuals rather dramatically. Liberals would make taxpayers pay for her abortion, while Islamists(Bush called the religion of peace) would have her beaten to death.

Read the whole story:

“Many months later on a winter night, as Hena’s sister Alya told it, Hena was walking from her room to an outdoor toilet when Mahbub Khan gagged her with cloth, forced her behind nearby shrubbery and beat and raped her.

Hena struggled to escape, Alya told CNN. Mahbub Khan’s wife heard Hena’s muffled screams and when she found Hena with her husband, she dragged the teenage girl back to her hut, beat her and trampled her on the floor.

The next day, the village elders met to discuss the case at Mahbub Khan’s house, Alya said. The imam pronounced his fatwa. Khan and Hena were found guilty of an illicit relationship. Her punishment under sharia or Islamic law was 101 lashes; his 201.

Mahbub Khan managed to escape after the first few lashes.”

So the poor girl gets raped, then beaten by the pedophiles wife, accused of adultery, sentenced to 101 lashes, dies after 70 and then they say it was a suicide.

I cannot find to adjectives that would aptly describe the evil, lying, heinous, b*stards. I am totally beside myself with anger and disgust.

The imam from the local mosque ordered....

These “people” (and I use that term with much trepidation) fear women...atrocious acts to control.

I read somewhere that you can tell the evolution and status of the society by the way they treat women...

Just look at history.

Not holding my breath that the offenders will be brought to justice and executed as they should.

Her real "crime" was probably refusing to have sex with a village elder. Rest in peace little girl. At least you don't live in hell any more.

“This happens everyday somewhere in the Islamic world.”

The Islamic world is overwhelmingly filled with sub-animal species of lifeforms.

A 14 y/o girl is raped and then gets beaten to death because she wasn’t strong enough to fight off her assailant. This is beyond evil. Even worse is that they have infested Europe and are beginning to infest the U.S. I can only hope that the unfortunate girl is in a better place now.
