WTF!!! 14-Year-Old Rape Victim Charged With Adultery And Beat To Death In Bangladesh

- By Bossip Staff

This is beyond sad.

A 14-year-old Bangladeshi girl allegedly raped by a much older cousin has died after being publicly flogged for adultery, media reports said.

Hena Begum was sentenced to receive 100 lashes by a village council made up of elders and Muslim clerics in the district of Shariatpur, about 35 miles from the capital, Dhaka, the BBC said today.

She endured about 80 lashes before collapsing Monday, according to The Daily Star, a Bangladeshi newspaper. Her family took her to a hospital, where she died.

“What sort of justice is this? My daughter has been beaten to death in the name of justice. If it had been a proper court then my daughter would not have died,” Dorbesh Khan, the girl’s father, told the BBC.

Family members said Hena was raped by a 40-year-old married cousin, The Daily Star said. The man’s family beat up the teen, then accused of her adultery, the newspaper said.

The very next day, she was sentenced to the flogging in a fatwa, or religious ruling, issued by the village council under Islamic Shariah law, the BBC said.

Four people, including a Muslim cleric, have been arrested in connection with Hena’s death, the BBC said. Police said they were looking for another 14 people in the case.

Bangladesh’s high court has ordered district officials in Shariatpur to explain why they did not protect the girl, The Daily Star said. The court ruled eight months ago that Shariah punishment was illegal.

At least someone spoke up so that, hopefully, no other family has to endure this kind of injustice again.

      Those are original people whose history has been destroyed by whites, just like you Kalifa.

      Most muslims are outraged by Sharia law, even the ‘brown-skinned’ ones.

      That interpretation (Sharia Law) is a white interpretation of Islam and it started with the spread of whites into the near east. Do you know Christianity the way Jesus wanted you to know it?

      No, you’ve been taught a version that’s been corrupted by the nature of white people, just like many Muslims today have. Muslims believe in the Quran because it has not been tampered with. But the culture has. That’s what Sharia law and Al Queda are – Perversions of that religion. That’s like hating all Christians because of Hitler’s perversion of that religion. No true Christian, Jew, or Muslim would take a life in God’s name. If God wanted the World Trade Center gone, he would’ve destroyed it himself. Enacting the will of God is the antithesis of having faith.

      Why do we give money in church, when Jesus preached against churches, saying the temple(He was Jewish) of God is all around you? Why does the Pope have so much political power? Both questions are related. Before whites spread from Europe, your people never saw brown or yellow people as different and vice-versa. Whites are the great dividers.

    And some wonder why people are revolutionizing and overthrowing their governments and rulers? People in Bangladesh should fight back.

  • Deb

    And women should start taking matters into their own hands, letting that power expand, because the law is not going to help us. We’re stronger than this… We need to show it. So heartbreaking what happened to this girl. Let’s not let this happen again.

    Girl you nailed it. These beasts make me sick to my stomach. You ever heard the Jewish myth of Lilith?

  • Red Girl

    I agree, it is unfortunate because if Christians followed the Bible to the T we would be doing the same things. Of course once women realize their power and stop men from harming their daughters, this would stop. Women are often complacent and allow these cultural or religious practices to continue. If the women banded together I bet it would change. They may be stupid but I know they would not be stupid enough to kill all the women because their culture would die.
