Barbaric Muslims: Some 20 people from Multan, Pakistan, have been arrested for ordering the rape of a teenage girl, in revenge for a rape her brother allegedly committed
Police said that the families of the two girls are related. Members of both had joined forces to decide what should be done. "A jirga [village council] had ordered the rape of a 16-year-old girl as punishment, as her brother had raped a 12-year-old," police official Allah Baksh said. He said that the village council was approached recently by a man who said that his 12-year-old sister had been raped by their cousin. The council then ordered the complainant to rape the sister of the accused in return - which police say he did. The girl was forced to appear before the group and raped in front of them and her parents. The mothers of the two girls later filed complaints at the local police station. Medical examinations have confirmed rape in both cases. Another officer, Ahsan Younas, said that the first girl to be raped was aged between 12 and 14. The victim of the revenge rape is said to be 16 or 17. He said that police had registered a complaint against 25 people, and that the suspect accused of raping the 12-year-old was still at large.
