Islam in action Morocco Rape



More proof how Islam corrupts society.

If not for Western (read = non-Islamic) influence, there would never have been any vote to repeal the law, and slavery would be official policy in the land.

Forced to marry her rapist — days until the vote

16 year-old Amina Filali, raped, beaten and forced to wed her rapist, killed herself — the only way she saw to escape the trap set for her by her rapist and Moroccan law. We’ve joined Moroccan activists, campaigning for years to repeal this provision, and now victory is within reach. This week, one last vote could make it happen.

Article 475 in Morocco’s penal code allows a rapist to avoid prosecution and a long prison sentence by marrying his victim if she is a minor. It’s any rape survivor’s worst nightmare, and for Amina, it came true. But now, after hundreds of thousands of us helped to push Parliament, a vote to repeal the provision is within our grasp. If it’s called, insiders say the repeal is certain to pass. We just need one final push to get it to the table.

  1. The first statement about how “Islam corrupts society” is a very idiotic and ignorant generalization. Moroccan laws were drafted by individuals who, in many cases, had a distorted view of religion. In fact, many verses of the Quran are to this day very hard to interpret and subject to debate and controversy. For example, according to the Quran, men are allowed to marry up to four women as long as they treat them all equally. Otherwise, they must marry only one. It is virtually impossible to satisfy this condition. Thus, this statement implicitly limits marriage to only one. Some so-called scholars, however, justify polygamy on the basis that there is a larger number of women in the world and that this statement is to solve that “problem.” In my humble opinion, this is a myopic and idiotic justification. The historical context of this statement is the only plausible explanation. Around the time this verse was introduced, wars were common (as they are today) within cultures that did not allow the interaction of women with people to whom they were not related. Widowed women had nobody to care for them. So, the verse was introduced as a “solution” to this problem. When a man is caring for four women for that purpose, the condition stated in the verse can be easily satisfied. So-called Islamic scholars like to ignore these facts because they themselves want to marry more than one woman.
    This example illustrates how the Quran, or any other religious scriptures, can be miused and misinterpreted. Blaming the entire religion for human actions promotes false ideas and unnecessarily sows seeds of hatred and ignorance.

    1. JS, your entire attempt at Islamic apologetics is idiotic and and ignorant. Seeing that Mohamed himself had multiple wives, proves your logic to be self defeating and circular. Mohamed is deemed the supreme example of human behaviour, and to be imitated in every fashion, so Islam promotes extreme misogyny as a de facto right, as well as paedophilia, since Mohamed is on record raping a 9 year old girl. It has led to countless generations of young girls being raped in so called marriages. Islam is always being defended by someone who believes that the religion is being misused and badly misinterpreted, yet the very seat of Islam, where it has been practised since its founding, and with all four schools of Islamic jurisprudence, prove you wrong. Nice try, but Islam is irredeemable.
