If you want 70 Virgins, rape a non Muslim woman

22 Jun

The fantasy of Muslim men of having “70 virgins” in heaven is no more a fantasy, or a wish. It now has horrible and lethal implications when a Muslim man decides to pursue it here in the world. The story of shame begins with the preaching of a speaker in Islamic Convention in Rawalpindi where he said, “If you marry a non-Muslim or rape a non-Muslim girl, you will get 70 virgins in heaven.” Assumingly, his hate speech reached hundreds of participants, but in one particular case we could witness the havoc his speech brought. Five “Muslim men” raped a 14-yesr Christian girl apparently getting overwhelmed by their desire for having 70 virgins. The role of such religious speakers is shameful who actually are preaching the benefits of raping non-Muslim women in conventions and people around them turn a deaf ear till this brutality reaches their doors. Here, the subject of sexuality is still a taboo, but we allow all sorts of guidance towards the path of reaching virgins even at the cost of women here. I would not be surprised if I do not hear that those five men along with that speaker are hanged till death. Rape is a criminal offence which goes beyond religion, cast, and nationality. If we do not ensure justice for such groups who clearly feel isolated and dejected, we will loose them.

Below is the story:

Muslims in Pakistan Kidnap, Rape Christian Girl

Five men threatened to kill her unless her father allowed one to marry her.

RAWALPINDI, Pakistan, June 16 (CDN) — Five Muslims here kidnapped and raped a Christian girl after threatening to kill her unless her father allowed one of them to marry her.

Lazarus Masih said one of his three daughters, 14, was kidnapped on May 29 by five men identified only as Guddu, Kamran, Waqas, Adil and Ali.

Police recovered her on June 6 in a raid on the home where she was being held, though the suspects escaped.

“They threatened that if I don’t get her married to Guddu, they would kill her,” Masih said. “One of them said, ‘We attended an Islamic religious convention, and the speaker said if you marry a non-Muslim or rape a non-Muslim girl, you will get 70 virgins in heaven.”

He said that when he and his wife returned from work at around 11 a.m. on May 29, their 14-year-old daughter was not at home; his other daughters had been at school and said they did not know where she had gone.

During the family’s search for her, they heard from Masih’s brother-in-law, Yousaf Masih, that he had seen five Muslim men follow her earlier that morning.

“In the morning around 7:30 a.m., I saw that [name withheld] and another girl were sitting in a rickshaw and five Muslim guys – Guddu, Kamran, Waqas, Adil and Ali – followed the rickshaw,” Yousaf Masih told the girl’s father.

Family members said the suspects took her to a house near Islamabad, where they gave her a drug that rendered her unconscious, and raped her. A medical report confirmed that she was given drugs and raped.

Lazarus Masih, who lives with his daughters and wife in Mohalla Raja Sultan, Rawalpindi, filed a First Information Report at the Waris Khan police station on June 1 against all five men. He said Guddu, Kamran and Waqas sell and use drugs.

He also contacted advocacy organization Ephlal Ministry, which along with representatives of Life for All and Peace Pakistan met with police chief Mazhar Hussain Minhas and demanded immediate action for the recovery of the girl.

“This is a very sad incident, and we will do whatever we can to recover the girl,” Hussain Minhas told them. Devastated family members said the girl remained frightened and was not speaking to anyone.

“It is such a shame that the religious leaders teach inhuman acts,” said the Rev. John Gill of Shamsabad Catholic Church. “This incident has ruined the life of an innocent child.” The family formerly belonged to the Catholic parish but now affiliates with a Protestant church, New Life Ministry in Rawalpindi.
