Malaysia has seen yet another act of barbarianism perpetrated against a female by Muslims.
Malaysian police have arrested 13 of 38 men who are suspected of raping a 15-year-old girl.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - A 15-year-old girl was raped for hours by 38 Muslim men on May 20, in an abandoned hut in the country's northern state of Kelantan. Police have apprehended at least 13 individuals, and are looking for others suspected of the crime.
The victim apparently met a female friend of hers, who lured her into the empty hut, which was reportedly a local drug haunt. Police are also investigating the 17-year-old, to see if she was also raped.
Of those detained, several tested positive for amphetamine, and police say that this crime could have been prevented had villagers, including neighbors just 20-meters away, reported the presence of the addicts.
"It is very disturbing to me that no one in the village was even suspicious when the closest neighbor was a mere 20-meters away," reported Police Chief Azham to The Star daily.
Nearly 3,000 rapes have been reported to the Malaysian police since 2012. Of these, 52 percent involved girls 16 or younger.
Those convicted of rape can face 30 years in prison, and whippings, though some are pushing for harsher punishments.
This incident is just one of several cases of brutality that has taken place recently, displaying just how vilely Muslims treat women across Asia and the world. These acts have caused outrage among women's groups, while authorities from the Muslim party, which controls the region, have proposed stricter penalties to deter criminals.
"We are seeing a prevalence in rape cases because boys are raised in an environment where they think it is okay to use violence," said Suri Kempe of Sisters of Islam.
Other cases of rape in Asia include the fatal gang rape of a physiotherapy student in India in 2012, and the rape of two teenage cousins from a low caste in India, who where then hung from a tree.
In Pakistan, a pregnant woman was also bludgeoned to death by her family when she married against the wishes of her parents.
