While being forced to marry a man she did not know against her will, a woman decided to venture outside of the marital norm and have sex outside of marriage. Unfortunately for her, a few Muslim men in town found out exactly what she had done – and they let her know exactly how they felt about it.
The occurrence took place just outside of Firozkoh in Afghanistan, where Muslim men carried out the woman’s punishment. After reportedly having sex with a man who wasn’t her husband, the woman – believed to be between the ages of 19 and 21 and only known as Rokhshana – was taken to the outskirts of town for some not-so-fun in the sand.
Reports on the matter vary, with some saying that the young woman had “premarital sex with her fiancé, a 23-year-old man named Mohammad Gul” and others claiming she was “[p]unished for eloping with a man after [her] family arranged a different marriage.” Either way, as outlined by Islam, Rokhshana was found to have committed adultery as Advocate KHOJ defines the sin and crime, according to the Muslim religion.
Under Muslim law, “Adultery is defined as sexual intercourse by a person whether man or woman, with someone to whom they are not married.” Adultery or extramarital sex is considered as the infringement of matrimonial bond and is regarded as one of the foremost crimes condemned by Allah in religious book of Muslims — the Quran.
At this point, it’s unclear if the woman had already been married off and ventured outside of that marriage, if she was having sex prior to any marriage, or if she was having sex within a marriage not recognized by Islam. Either way, the punishment is the same, and she faced the brutality of the twisted ideology.
Since the initial reports were released on the matter, video has emerged showing the terrifying series of events that played out, eventually ending in the young woman’s life. As many of us know, the punishment for adultery, as outlined by Sharia law, is for the guilty parties to be stoned to death.
Although Mail Online reports that such strict punishment is rarely carried out in Muslim countries, Rokhsahana did indeed face the consequences Islam dictates. After digging a hole in the sand, the young woman, who was more than likely bound, was placed inside before a group, seemingly only consisting of all men, hurled rocks at her. Radio Free Europe also reports that those carrying out the punishment were actually members of the Taliban.
Defenseless to the incoming objects, the unfortunate woman’s screams could be heard growing louder and higher pitch with every devastating blow. She was eventually killed, all alone, in perhaps one of the most barbaric methods still utilized today.
To make matters worse, the man who she was found to be sleeping with was simply let off with a few lashes. You see, that right there should be more than enough to make the left abandon its defense of the religion of Islam once and for all, as it shows where Muslims stand on women’s rights — the only problem is getting the liberal left to admit that this is part of the ideology and commands within the Quran.
With so-called “champions of women’s rights,” like 2016 Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton receiving millions upon millions of dollars from Muslim nations where occurrences such as this are seen on a daily basis, it’s enough to make anyone wonder why the hypocrisy seems invisible to some.
Unfortunately, the religion of Islam is allowed to continue on its merry and uncivilized way. You know, a great many religions may have been responsible for their fair share of historical atrocities, but only the religion of Islam still practices those acts of barbarism today. It’s time that Islam catches up with the times or is rid from the planet entirely, and the left starts acknowledging the evil that stems from the religion. Enough is enough already.
