Erding — At an asylum waiting room in the year 2015, a 14-year-old girl was allegedly raped by eight men. This came to light in the proceedings against a deserting soldier.
The 28-year-old time soldier from North Rhine-Westphalia had to face court in Laufen because he was absent for five months from his troop as a mountaineer, and fled to South Africa. He was fined €2,000.
During the trial, however, the NRW man reasoned that he was being mobbed and humiliated. That the worst of his experiences were when he had to work with refugees. He told Judge Thomas Hippler what he had experienced in the waiting room of the asylum home in Erding.
“I saw how these people were dealing with each other, and with their children. How all the various nationalities and religions led to conflicts and attacks, how they threw their food on the ground,” he was quoted as saying by the Berchtesgadener Anzeiger.
The worst, however, was when he had to search for a 14-year-old forcibly married child bride. The soldier said that she was raped by eight men. That he finally found the bleeding child hiding under a bed.
He sharply criticized the procedures established by his superiors. He couldn’t speak to any of them about what happened. “Shut your mouth; that’s no one’s business, especially not the media’s,” one of his superiors allegedly told him. The soldier couldn’t deal with this. His testimony in front of the court ended with these words: “I can’t do it anymore. I am at the end; I just feel like s***.” The 28-year-old enlisted in the Bundeswehr in 2012 — for an eight-year stint as a soldier.
At the offices of the administrative court nobody knows about the alleged rape at the asylum waiting room. Injured people always are treated at the Erding Clinic, paid for by the administration.
The asylum waiting room in Fliegerhorst is a facility of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees. The spokeswoman for the office, Natalie Psuja, says: “After discussing this with colleagues at the location and with the police we can tell you that this incident is not known, and that there never was a police report filed.”
Now this is a headline that a decade or so ago, I would have bet the farm could never be on any real newspaper. And instead of the howling outrage it should generate, perhaps especially from the left, the soothing sound of crickets.
Teenage girls who fear they are being taken abroad to enter into a forced marriage are escaping by putting metal spoons in their underwear, a charity has revealed.
Karma Nirvana, a Derby-based campaign group which supports victims of forced marriage, advises girls to use a spoon, or any other metal object, to set off detectors at the airport and separate themselves from parents.
The charity says a number of girls have used the tactic to avoid being taken overseas and entered into a life of servitude.
I get why the Buddhists are acting as they are. I don’t get why the Christians are not acting as the Buddhists are.

A 12-year-old Christian girl was kidnapped and repeatedly raped for eight months in Pakistan by a man who then falsified marriage documents with her, it was claimed today.
The girl was lured on a shopping trip in Lahore by a friend, before she was driven 120 miles to Tandianwalla and raped by the friend’s uncle in January this year.
Two days later, she was forced to sign papers consenting to marriage with the man and beaten for refusing to convert from Christianity to Islam.
Islam. The religion of selling off young people for sex with strangers for money while simultaneously claiming the moral high hand.
This article is in error however. It is not forbidden in Islam at all and is encouraged in Shiia Islam where prostitution is a good thing so long as the pimp is the cleric. As long as you buy your ‘short term marriage contract’ from the guy with the big cloth hat no one gets rocks pelted at them till they die.
At least for that.

Campaigners for Muslim women’s rights said while short term ‘contract marriages’ are illegal in India and forbidden in Islam, they are increasing in Hyderabad, in southern India, where wealthy foreigners, local agents and ‘Qazis’ – government-appointed Muslim priests – are exploiting poverty among the city’s Muslim families.
The victim, Nausheen Tobassum, revealed the scale of the problem when she escaped from her home last month after her parents pressurised her to consummate a forced marriage to a middle aged Sudanese man who had paid around £1,200 for her to be his ‘wife’ for four weeks.
PLANTATION, Fla. (WSVN) — A Middle Eastern South Florida resident was arrested Friday for allegedly burning her teenage daughter with a heated knife.
Authorities said 35-year-old Sahar Thabit, who was born in Yemen, was punishing her 17-year-old daughter for befriending and talking to a boy online in defiance of her family, who want her to marry her cousin. She has been charged with three counts of child abuse causing grave bodily harm.
“This was pretty bad, because there were burn marks on both arms,” said Somy Ali, president of No More Tears, a non-profit organization that assists victims of domestic violence. Ali said the victim had three identical burn marks on each forearm.
Hollywood Police said Thabit burned her daughter in early January. Officials at South Broward High School became aware of the victim’s burns when the teenager’s classmate told the assistant principal her parents were furious when they found out about their daughter’s online friendship.
I find it highly offensive when news media report a forced marriage as an arranged one. It is a lot like reporting rape as a weekend at Club Hedonism Jamaica. Not that rape doesn’t happen there of course.

In Florida, America, a Moslem woman was arrested for burning and abusing her high school daughter for not marrying her cousin in an arraigned marriage.
I don’t understand why Muslims immigrate to Western countries like the USA, UK, Australia, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Ireland, Great Brittan, Denmark, Spain, France, New Zealand, Canada, United Kingdom, United States, Russia and other countries in Europe yet still want to keep their backward Islamic customs and culture?
(AINA) — On December 23, 2012, 13-year-old Agape Essam Girgis from the village of Nahda, el-Ameriya, near Alexandria, went to school as usual. Failing to return home, the family knew that she went out of school accompanied by the Muslim social worker Heba and two teachers, one of the them a Salafist. She stayed missing for 9 days during which the family and sympathizers organized a sit-in in front of the renowned Alexandria Library. The Coptic Church in Alexandria also organized a conference on December 30 on the abduction of Coptic girls, with focus on Agape, which was attended by journalists and the public.
On December 31 state security contacted Bishop Pachomios and told him that they have the kidnapped girl. She was handed over to her family and the church priest where she stayed with his family for some time due to the terrible ordeal she experienced during her abduction.
Bishop Pachomios said in an aired interview with Al Balad TV that what happened to Agape is “heart-breaking.” He said that she went in a taxi with her school’s social worker Heba and two men, and that she was drugged and awakened to find herself in a secluded place with an elderly woman. He said that after she returned home he spoke to her and she said that the Salafists tried to convert her to Islam.

(AINA) — Hundreds of Christian Egyptian girls having been abducted and forced to convert to Islam and marry Muslim men since the 2011 Egyptian Revolution. But the case of 14 year old Sarah has become symbolic, bringing to confrontation Muslims groups, whose members are implicated in the kidnappings, and the Coptic Church and human rights organizations.
On Sunday, September 30 Sarah Ishaq Abdelmalek, born on August 1, 1998 in the town of el-Dabaa, 130 kilometers from Mersa Matrouh, was on her way to school with her cousin Miriam, when they stopped at a bookshop. Miriam went ahead of Sarah to school, leaving Sarah behind. Sarah never made it to school and no one has seen her since then. Her father was hesitant at first to contact the authorities for fear of harm to his family and his other children by the Salafi Muslims, who have a large presence and influence in Mersa Matrouh and Alexandria. He finally filed a report with the police on October 20, accusing 27 year old bookshop keeper and Salafist Mahmoud Abu Zied Abdel Gawwad, a married man and father of children, of abducting Sarah and marrying her against her will (AINA 11-2-2012).
“Sarah was smuggled across the borders to Libya with the help of the Interior Ministry,” said Ebram Louis, founder of the Coptic non-governmental organization Association of Victims of Abduction and Enforced Disappearance (AVAED), which handles cases of abducted Coptic minors. Louis blamed the interior ministry for all the disappearances of Coptic minors, saying the ministry colludes with the Muslims.
The recently elected Coptic Orthodox Pope Tawadros II said the kidnapping and forced conversion of Sarah is a “disgrace for the whole of Egypt.” During a meeting with a delegation of the Journalists Syndicate Council at Anba Bishoy Monastery in Wadi Natrunon on November 12, he said “Can any family accept the kidnapping of their daughter and her forced conversion?”
The Pope dismissed the term “emotional ties” for what is happening among young men and girls from different religions, cited as the apparent cause of conversions by the Salafists. In an interview with Al Ahram Daily he said it is “sentimental coercion of girls who have not reached adulthood.” The Pope said it is now common among Coptic families not to send their daughters to school because of fear kidnapping and forced conversion. Anba Pakhomios, the bishop of Mersa Matrouk, said Coptic families are increasingly choosing not to send their girls to public schools, making them study at home and only go to school during the examinations.

This woman’s horrific scars serve as a cruel and permanent reminder of the moment her husband of 18 years flung acid into her face.
Nurbanu had divorced her unfaithful and violent spouse after catching him with another woman.
Eight days later, she was cooking at home in Bangladesh when he pulled up on a motorbike and doused her with acid, leaving her blind and disfigured.
The 36-year-old now has to endure living with her former spouse again after his mother forced her to sign an affidavit to have him released from prison following the attack.
Nurbanu’s husband of 18 years went into hiding after mutilating his former wife, but was caught ten months later and jailed for a year, according to a report on The Huffington Post.
‘His mother paid for his release on bail,’ said Nurbanu, who is from Satkhira in south west Bangladesh.
‘She made me sign an affidavit to have him released. She used my sons to convince me to marry him again.
‘People would think a husband would take care of a blind wife. But this doesn’t happen,’ Nurbanu said.
She also said her spouse continues to beat and threaten her, adding: ‘This is how my days go by.’
Nurbanu, who is unable to even prepare a meal for herself following her husband’s devastating attack, is one of thousands of women to fall victim to acid violence in Bangladesh in recent years.

Child marriages accounted for 32 per cent of all marriages in the country from 1987 to 2005. PHOTO:FILE
During a consultative meeting that was held to discuss the sensitive topic on Monday, it was shared that not much is expected to change in the next decade if the government does not take the issue seriously. Around 100 million girls are expected to enter into child marriage in the next decade, it was said.
Participants got together to map out the social, medical and legal work being done to decrease the prevalence of child marriages.
Qindeel Shujaat, legal adviser on human rights, said that while there are laws to prevent child marriages, the Child Marriages Restraint Act 1929 hasn’t been modified in 82 years. “The punishment for violating the law is a fine of Rs1,000, or one month imprisonment. If a marriage involving children takes place, the adults are punished, but the marriage is not dissolved,” she said. However, according to Shujaat, the law’s implementation is non-existentant.

EDMONTON – A man and woman are facing charges for allegedly assaulting and confining a 21-year-old woman against her will in a south Edmonton home after she refused to take part in a forced marriage outside of Canada.
Police were called to reports of a family dispute around 11:30 p.m. at a home in south Edmonton on Feb. 6 this year, Edmonton police said Thursday.
They found a 21-year-old woman who was being forcibly confined in her house.
Police say the woman was being forced to take part in a marriage outside of Canada, but did not say where. When the woman refused the marriage, she was assaulted and confined in the home, police allege.
Court records show the weapons allegedly used in the assault are an electrical cord and a laptop computer.
Few other details were provided by police. “It’s for the protection of the victim,” police spokeswoman Noreen Remtulla said.
On Tuesday, nine months to the day after the initial incident, hate crimes investigators laid several charges in the case.
Muhammad Rafi, 59, is charged with two counts of assault with a weapon, one count of assault and one count of forcible confinement. Najma Khokhar, 49, is charged with forcible confinement and assault. Both were released Wednesday on $1,000 bail and are slated to make their first appearances in an Edmonton court on Dec. 19.
