NEW DELHI (Reuters) - An Indian rape victim is being forced by village elders to "marry" her rapist -- her father-in-law, a newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Community leaders in Charthawal village, backed by local Muslim clerics, believe that by being raped, 28-year-old Imrana's 10-year marriage has been nullified under Islamic law, The Asian Age newspaper said.

You know, there HAS to be more to this story, can't be this simple and straightforward. Whatever the case is, they're doing something I'm 99% sure they aren't happy about and will regret it later!

Ship happens but the show must go on I suppose....

Same god, different name.




And prophets.





And teachings.





And customs.





And... nevermind.

the husband should rape her back to force her to divorce her father-in-law and remarry her husband.

would that work? or is there no take-backs in Islamic law?

:shocked:

Well, police are going to arrest the father-in-law so that might take care of some of the problem.

Islamic law is just fvcked up, period.

It's an utterly repugnant culture that contributes nothing to humanity, and the world would be better off without it.

Wrong.

This bunch of "community elders" are ignorant fools. The top Muslim body in India has rejected the ruling and is calling for the rapist to be given capital punishment.

Take a look here.

People (myself included) are very bad about using theological theory interchangably with theological practice.

Hate the village elders, not the religion. Nowhere in the Quran does it say "Rape a woman, and take her as your own!!!1!" Just like the bible doesn't say it's OK to molest choir boys.

:thumbsup: "Village elders"... that's all they are. Sadly these things happen in that region due to a serious lack of education in the rural areas.

Another example would be the case of Mukhtar Mai in neighbouring Pakistan. A "tribal council" ordered her rape because of a crime commited by her brother! Because he had already fled and was nowhere to be found, a group of men (related to the jury at the tribal council) gangraped her. Heartbreaking, but it's happening.
