MOGADISHU, Nov 2 – A 13-year-old girl who said she had been raped was stoned to death in Somalia after being accused of adultery by Islamic militants, a human rights group said.
Dozens of men stoned Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow to death Oct 27 in a stadium packed with 1,000 spectators in the southern port city of Kismayo, Amnesty International and Somali media reported, citing witnesses. The Islamic militia in charge of Kismayo had accused her of adultery after she reported that three men had raped her, the rights group said.
I don’t know how to feel right now. Sad, angry or just downright depressed at the state this world has come to.
This, is blatant disregard of human rights. A right for that girl to live. Her right to her own body. Her right to lodge reports on abuse committed towards her body and soul. Her right to ask for help and protection when she needs it the most. Her right, to dignity.
And they have simply taken all this away, by criminalising the victim, while the real criminals run scot-free. Free to do what they want. Free to commit more crimes of the same. And the next victim will be compelled to suffer in silence for fear that she too, might be stoned to death should she dare to breathe a word of her sufferings.
She was only 13.
