Kabul: An Afghan child bride on Saturday spoke of how she was tortured by her mother-in-law who locked her in a toilet for six months, beat her, pulled out her fingernails and burned her with cigarettes.
Sahar Gul, 15, is recovering in hospital in Kabul, her face bruised and swollen, her skin bearing the marks of her ordeal, barely able to speak.
Police have said she was locked up when she defied her in-laws who tried to force her into prostitution. Her brother had sold her to her husband about seven months ago for $5,000.
"For several months I was locked up in toilet by my in-laws and particularly my mother-in-law,'' she managed to tell media in a frail voice during a visit from Afghan health minister Suraya Dalil.
The minister said it was an example of "increased cases of violence against women in Afghanistan."
Dalil said Gul was suffering from severe blood loss, with multiple burns and injuries. "She is also suffering from trauma and psychological problems," she said.
Gul was found in the basement of her husband's house in the northeastern Baghlan province on Monday access to the home. Three women including the mother-in-law were arrested over the case but her husband fled.
My dream job is meting out justice to people who do things like this.
Sad. Happens all over the world. Child prostitution is rampant in Asia.
I wonder how many children the foul beast Mohammed, whom the scum who did this to that child worship and revere, raped and tortured while carrying out his Satanic reign of terror.
It just kills me too. I told my DH I wanted to mission in A-stan to help the women & girls,he doesn’t want me to. They were trying to stop women and girls from getting an education because that is how they keep them property. Educated women also educate their boys as well, depriving these animals of willing participants in their heinous crimes. I am sure a bit of in- breeding is a problem for their genetics as well. It hurts to know this is happening. I thought I was going to launch when I read about the Illegal who raped and murdered a one month old. God save us!
Oh, he’s another one who brings out my dark side. There’s a reason my friends nicknamed me Dexter.
Where's the outrage over: (1) genital mutilation; (2) forced marriages; (3) rape; (4) torture; (5) denial of education [forced illiteracy]; (5) no rights under Sharia Law; (6) second class or worse status in Muslim cultures.
Where are the Feminists? The world wonders.
Glad to hear I am not the only one. My friends are not willing to nickname me.. LOL. The madder I get the harder I pray. It doesn’t stop my dark side, but it keeps me from thinking all of humanity is lost and keeps me looking for the best in people. I truly understand vigilantism.
Asylum for women fleeing Islamic terror...thoughts?
No thanks. Islime is incompatible with our republican form of govt. The last thing we want to do is import more muslimes for any reason.
Read This. Evidently there is some statistical evidence that the in-breeding that is promoted in the Muslim “community” results in considerable genetic damage. Which may help to explain why Muslims act like animals.
I so wish we could adopt these girls. But Afghan law prohibits the adoption of girls to Western countries, IIRC. There ought to be an Underground Railroad for them, that is one prayer to God that I have. I would take this little one in right now if I could. What a hellhole that country is.
If Afghanistan is too far, you can go find this in Dearborn and Toronto.
Agreed. We are heading down that road now by simply allowing these ppl into our country, out of kindness, and some ill-gotten respect.
Where is Michelle Obama? Isn’t she a mother of young girls?
I remember Laura Bush speaking out about the plight of Afghan girls.
Well, like duhhh, people. Islam and Muslims are neither peaceful or law abiding. Islam has been slaughtering its way around the world for 1,400 years. When Muslims aren't murdering Infidel “unbelievers”, they are murdering each other over doctrinal differences (see Shi'ite vs. Sunni). Islam is a deranged political death cult that is a blight on world civilization. Islam needs to be destroyed like the disease it is. [That's my story and I'm sticking to it.]
