Their argument is based on the idea of refusing the death “execution” penalty for such crime “rape” because the victim was not killed despite in this case the victim could have been killed.
Just like you have read in the BBC link in 2006 a 18 years old housewife was kidnapped from her house in a village at Kafr El-Sheikh Governorate. A gang of 11 young men had kidnapped her depending on the fact that the rest of the village was busy attending a wedding party . That gang of rapists knew what they were doing , they came with guns. They took her to one of the fields where they rapped her for hours, some villagers in the end found out what was going on , they tried to save her but the rapists opened their fires till the Police came in and saved the day after it became … very dark night.
Already one of them proposed to marry the victim’s sister in law but he was rejected by the family and thus he planned this diabolic plan,so there was an intention, they knew what they were doing and they did not care.
I spoke about the execution penalty before in my blog but this time I have to speak again. I respect the Judge’s rule so much and I think that this is a fair and just rule. I do not care what some hardcore feminists believe regarding that judge and his statement with my all respect.
With my all respect to all those who think this rule is harsh but I wonder was not what happened to this woman much more harsh !!??
We are speaking from time to time that our society should support more the rape victims but now when we have this court rule we say that it is harsh just because the victim is still living on !!
I think it will be a luxury to jail those 10 rapists where they can eat and sleep for free , already I do not accept that those rapists would live in jail by our tax payers money.
I just wish that this woman would attend their execution ,one by one,just like in the States, this will mean too much to her.
What do you think my dear reader ?? Is it a fair court rule or what ??
Update No.1 :
- Al Masry Al Youm newspaper made an interview with Judge Mokhtar Shalaby who ruled their execution
- If the rule is not harsh ,the crime will be repeated.
- The fact that the rapists were 10 persons does not justify easing the sentence
- The victim has left the village and wore the Niqab
