Whose decision is it?

of all the rape stories, this one is the worst!! we already wrote about the rapist who assaulted 30 boys in jleeb al shyoukh and farwaniya, the rapist who blamed it on black magic and the mother who raped her daughter for sex education - there was also the rape cabbie, and that wicked law in germany about an optional castration for sex criminals.

however, nothing looks as sad as this story i read a couple of days ago on arabtimes, where 2 boys raped an arab girl with this strange "source" saying that one of the rapists will be compelled to marry the victim based on the outcome of forensics or else they serve seven years in prison!!

how can a girl marry the guy who raped her??? this is beyond any logic, and against human right! then i didn't get the part that says "he will be compelled to marry her or go to jail", is it a decision that he, and he only, has to take or is this according to some kind of a law? doesn't the victim have a say in this? it is really appalling!! any lawyer with an answer?

      I'm no lawyer but I know that in some arab countries there's a stupid law making the victim marry the rapist!! So not only she's raped and hurt once..she's raped again and again for life! Now tell me who's facing prison here? What did the VICTIM do for such a life punishment??? No one is man enough to change such a law? Don't they have a daughter or a sister? All it needs is some common sense

      It seems that law clearly and loudly says : “ a raped woman is such a damaged good that no one will ever wants her in future for marriage, therefore her only chance of marriage is to be wedded to the rapist himself” !!!!
      OR
      If you are interested in a girl who is refusing to marry you or her family refuses, just go rape her and the law will give her to you!!!.

      i guess you nailed it on the head bahaar! this is rather encouraging one-sided love!!

      i can't imagine what kind of punishment this would be, this is like legalizing the rape!

      There is NO love in the act of rape!!!!

      it could be, but always one sided..
