Probably the most disgusting story of inhuman, corrupt behaviour by a so called civilised government and its legal system. A victim of horrific abuse such as this.
The girl’s stepfather raped and abused her for years, he even stands murdered the baby she had and buried it in the families garden.
She will be massively psychologically damaged by these experiences and any civilised, modern society needs to understand this. Using heavy handed interrogation tactics, not protecting the victim from her abusers and, worst of all sentencing this girl to a public flogging for sex outside marriage is the behaviour of a barbaric, corrupt, wrong society.
Please sign this petition below let the Maldives government know about the global outrage and disgust these abhorrent actions have provoked.
If this story disgusts you as much as it does me, you can tell the Maldives embassy in London and tell them so:
President Mohammad Waheed of the Maldives is feeling global pressure on this, and that is what may well buy this child the support she needs. Without our voice, she would be condemned to suffer yet more abuse from her own government.
Its also important to remember that this is not an isolated case. This abuse prevails in all countries that enforce Sharia law, and we, in the UK and USA are asked to respect this barbaric, antiquated abusive set of rules! Wars have been fought and lives lost in the name of equality, freedom and basic human rights. Any attempt to undermine this must be stamped on with force.
