Amnesty: Rape girl, 13, killed for adultery

A 13-year-old girl who said she had been raped was stoned to death in Somalia after being accused of adultery by Islamic militants, a human rights group said.

Dozens of men stoned Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow to death Oct. 27 in a stadium packed with 1,000 spectators in the southern port city of Kismayo, Amnesty International and Somali media reported, citing witnesses. The Islamic militia in charge of Kismayo had accused her of adultery after she reported that three men had raped her, the rights group said.

Initial local media reports said Duhulow was 23, but her father told Amnesty International she was 13. Some of the Somali journalists who first reported the killing later told Amnesty International that they had reported she was 23 based upon her physical appearance.

Calls to Somali government officials and the local administration in Kismayo rang unanswered Saturday.

  1. If she didn't commit adultery any sane person knows she doesn't deserve that punishment.
    If she did commit the sin, do you think the punishment is unjustifiable?

    The reason for such punishment is so that girls that age and women is general would learn to lower their gaze, guard their modesty and prevents them from committing adultery.

    The source of the news is not credible either. They are known to twist the truth in stories like this.

    These are Stone Age barbarians blindly following their prophet, the butcher, murderer, pedophile, thief, highway robber and rapist Mohamed.

    Under Adhaalath the same is in store for us here in Maldives.

  4. @ ahmed: yeah for you it is barbaric because you think that it is fine to commit adultery before or after marriage. That is the way of those who have slipped from the right path. As mentioned is Quran:

    "And go not nigh to fornication; surely it is an indecency and an evil way" - Quran 17:32

    @ dhivehi christian: I’ve seen your comments elsewhere. Do you in anyway know how to engage in a discussion besides recurring to name calling?

    heheh nishan, arne't you one twisted fuck?

  6. In a case of rape, how can the victim (in this case the 13 year old girl Aisha) become an adulterer? Is she not the innocent helpless victim of a heinous crime of gang raping by 3 vicious sick barbarians?
    What stupidity...the victim is stoned to death and the criminals walk free. What do you call this Nishan? Justice?

  7. Modern science has proven that anybody below the age of 18 is not physically and mentally mature, that is, not an adult.
    In that case, if she was 13, the issue of consent does not arise, because a person who is not fully mature cannot give consent, even if she says "yes" to having sex. The adult person who goes on to have sex after such a "yes" answer will be a sick fuck because he should know that the 13-year-old girl was not an adult and therefore not in a position to give consent, regardless of whether she said "yes".
    That's why in civilised countries (amusingly Maldives included) now sex with an under-aged, even with their so-called "consent" or "yes" answers, is automatically considered statuary rape.
    This is the reason why I heavily criticised President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom and Gender Minister Aishath Mohamed Didi for not doing enough when the court let some men get away after gang-raping an under-aged girl because the court found that by "not screaming" she had indirectly given consent! This is indeed a sick country we are living in.

  8. And why does it always have to be women who has to "ward off" the advances of men? Who gave the right and authority to any man to make an advance on a woman, another individual being? Why do women have to cover themselves up in tents just because their privacy is invaded by some sick men? Perhaps the solution will be to gorge out the eyes of those sick men who fail to lower THEIR gaze in modesty or cut off their penises if they cannot "guard it" and keep it in their pants at the first sight or a glimpse of a woman. Man, some men ARE a bunch of deprived, repressed sick fucks, eh.

    I like your comment. Everybody has sex organs, breathing apparatus, orifices, etc, etc.In time the body breaks down and decays.
    Muslim view of the human body makes no sense whatsoever.
