I won't speak in politics or conspiracy theories or anything but I will speak about the Social disaster that appeared on "El-Mahawar" Channel , the Youngest Mother in Egypt
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you Hend , the youngest mother in Egypt , she is 11 years old only from the Qalyubia Governorate , the beginning of the country side north Cairo
Hend became a mother after being raped by a "Tuk-tuk" driver who threatened her to kill her in front of her school if she opened her mouth and thus she didn't opened her mouth except when she began to feel pain in her stomach after 5 months and thus she turned to be going to have a baby .
She recognized the criminal who did that to her from the police records in the police station, he turned to 21 years old with a police record , he was arrested but the D.A decided to release for a bill in waiting for the "DNA" results
Now he is free and I believe there no patrol or surveillance what so ever to make sure that he won't repeat his crime
I wonder where is the high council for woman and child headed by the first lady from such agony??
Thankfully it seems that her parents are understanding the situation because in the country side and upper Egypt the girl may be killed in what so considered a Honour killing , in fact I believe one of the factors that made the girl silent the first 5 months beside the death threat she received for her rapist was the fear of disgrace from such incident.
A kid mothering a baby ,this is terrible ,really just look to her anyhow thank God from what I see I feel that she is taking the responsibility as a mother ,of course a single mother
I can feel her family's agony and dilemma especially they are living in the country side
First of all it was too late for abortion , she was 5 month pregnant when they knew , there would be a risk for her health ,also from the religious point of view some religious men believe that women can do abortion till the third month only as the baby begins to be a human being after that , of course this is beside the view that prohibits abortion itself from the beginning.
Second of all ,usually in the country side and also in the city in fact in the Egyptian society ,the girls who are raped usually got married to hide the scandal and sometimes even from their own rapists "I don't agree at all on that way and ironically that marriage is done in the police station" !! This girl can not be married anyway because she is only 11 years and the marriage age according to the Egyptian law is 15 years old
I am just explaining what that family is suffering from agony considering our society they are living in
Here is a video for the girl ,I borrowed from "Masrawy.com" , it is in Arabic of course ,the girl describes her rape ,amazingly she is talking strong as far as she could , she described how the rapist took her in front of the youth club in the village where she was going to her brother at 2 PM , oh yes 2 PM and that he threatened her with a Swiss knife pushing her towards the fields till they reached to some old house nothing in it except a sofa where he forced her to sleep on and then he slept over her as she described ,then after taking her the most precious thing she had as it is described in Egypt ,he hit her on her back and stomach threatening her to be killed in front of her school as he knows her and knows that she goes to school at 9 AM
I am hoping that the high council of woman and child lady members had watched this episode
This rapist should be hanged in a public square
Update #1The tuk-tuk driver turned to be innocent according to the DNA , he is not the father of that baby and up till now we do not know who is the daddy is " 28/5/2010"
