According to Islam, woman in public must be accompanied by a male guardian at all times . Failure to do so is a punishable offense and that is exactly what this 13 year old girl allegedly have done.

A 13 year old, Shafeenaz who went to a neighboring house was raped by a 54 year old man and the incident was reported to a local Sharia court which then decided to sentence the victim for 100 lashes and a two year jail term for behaving indecently and allowing herself to be victimized by not accompanying a male guardian.

13 Year Old Rape Victim Ordered To Lash 100 Times and Two Year Jail Term In Turkey

Turkey was a secular country until very recently although the rise of Sharia courts are clearly evident, specially in rural Turkey. Turkish president Ergodan is trying to remove "Secularism" from the constitution and make it a "Religious constitution" by referencing God.

Speaker Ismail Kahraman recently called for a constitution change for this effect which sparked controversy. Taking the lead rural Turkey cities have now moved to set up their own Sharia courts. This 13 year old was convicted by a similar sharia court which determined that they lack evidence to convict the rapist as the victim was unable to provide four witnesses to the court.

Verdict was given by a four member sharia panel who said to have heard only two cases prior to this. According to reports, secular movements have already protested against the religions legal system popping up in Rural Turkey against modern Ataturk constitution which is still in force.

Leading human rights activist, Ajmal Khaleed said that they have already filed this case to the UNHRC and waiting for their intervention in light of Ergodan's attempt to make Turkey an Islamic state governed by Sharia law.

He also noted that "perpetrators will only be inspired by such verdicts and child abuse cases will skyrocket". "This need to be dealt with immediately as we do not wish Turkey governed by Sharia policing", he added further.

Amnesty international issued a press release condemning the verdict and their surprise to learn that Sharia courts are operating in a secular country such as Turkey.  When ATV news channel inquired Bekir Bozdag, the minister of justice, if the government will be taking any action against illegal sharia courts operating, he said that "we are investigating the matter now and its too early to say anything".

  1. What punishment did the perpetrator get???

    In a male dominated society it is the woman's fault when anything goes wrong, even when she is raped. Thank goodness that in the west the male would spend years in jail and the female would receive compassion and support, as it should be!!!!!!

  2. Four witnesses? Why not require video & audio from three different camera angles as well?
    The reason religions look down on women is 'cause they were written by men.

  3. This is either wrong or fake news. This is not Turkey. May be some other country in the middleeast. Turkey is a secular country and there is no such law or court. You should check your source. The news may be right but the country is definitely wrong.

  6. This is not turkey. I am an atheist living in turkey, so do not think i am covering up anything, bit first of all we dont have sharia courts. We dont have names such as shafeenaz. And if that incident was happened, i was on the streets, protesting. I follow most contrarian media and never heard of it.

      No press release has been issued about this case, which calls into question how accurate the rest of the article is
