Pack rape in Pakistan can be a punishment for females who attend school. A recent gang rape by local villagers of a girl and her mother occurred because the girl disobeyed the villagers by going to school. Even the local police refused to intervene until the 12th day of the rapes.
This incident brings to mind memories of Mukhtar Mai. Now a heroine not a victim!
In Pakistan a women who is raped faces the prospect of criminal prosecution for having sex outside marriage. And the President of Pakistan, Gen Pervez Musharraf is stalling on changing this obviously senseless law because of opposition from hard-line Islamic parties. The Pakistani military won't take the religious fanatics on.
Is this not one of the basic questions Islam needs to address? Along with honor killings of women who disobey their male 'owners'?
