A radical muslim kidnapped and raped the young child of a Christian man who refused to convert to Islam. Though the little girl survived, she has suffered severe injuries from the rape and has since required five major surgeries.
Shockingly enough, raping a child is not against Islamic law, but damaging her body is. A fatwa (Islamic law) by muslim leader Ayatollah Khomeini clearly states:
“A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed. A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man’s four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl’s sister.”
Basically, this means that if a girl has severe injuries, she must then become the slave of her rapist. Luckily, the little girl’s injuries were not severe enough to put her in her rapist’s clutches for life.
Her rapist, however, will face no punishment.
Despite the brutal crime, the girl’s father still refuses to convert to Islam.
Sadly, cases like this are not rare in Pakistan. Forced conversions to Islam happen far too often, with many succumbing to angry Muslim’s demands and abandoning Christianity.
