Will you be surprised when 'honor rape' of a man happens right here in Maldives?
Mob of farmers gang rape sons of a regional governor and police chief.
The Muslim world is full of violent, graphic and alarming stories of 'honor killings', in which young woman are killed by male family members for dishonoring the family.
'Honor rape', in which the gang rape of a woman is used as a tool of social punishment, is spoken of less.
Almost unheard of is an 'honor killing' or 'honor rape' of a man.
But the northern Afghanistan province of Jowzjan is grappling with just that, after the sons of the region's governor and police chief were found having sex with two women almost a month ago in the Dasht-i Leile desert, north of the provincial capital Shiberghan.
According to local media reports, a man named Yama, the 30-year-old son of the Jowzjan governor, and his friend Hashmatullah, the 28-year-old son of the provincial police chief, was seen by local herdsmen having sex with 24-year old Shokreya and 22-year-old Jamila.
The herdsmen allegedly stole the men's guns and money and gang raped them in retribution for the 'dishonor' they had committed by having sex with the two young women.
"The farmers tore the clothes of the two young men with sickles and raped them," a local official told Pajhwok Afghan News. The herdsmen later described to local organizations that the attack was an 'honor rape.'
As the story goes, the two men were left naked in the desert, only to return home covered by the women's burqas and unable to sit down due to their injuries. The two women were reportedly unharmed, but told to leave the area within two weeks.
