I was in my way to my home when I heard the news on Al Arabia News Channel about this brutal crime of a Tunisian man raping his wife right after the wedding ceremony!
The Tunisian couple first started a ” networking relationship” through the internet and at that time the man was living in Germany. Later on, they decided to take their relationship further and get marry. Just after the wedding ceremony they went to a hotel room, that’s when the husband suddenly turned into a monster. He brutally raped his wife in a very aggressive and cruel way; he burnt her with cigarettes and then took nude pictures of her. After that, the husband left the hotel room.
The battered wife called her brother right away and told him about the incidence, he picked her up and went to the nearest hospital in town. The doctors reported a cute internal bleeding. The wife was referred to a Psychiatric consultant for further treatment.
The verdict of sending the man to a life sentence was announced yesterday in some Arabic newspaper and news channels. This kind of crimes happen very often in the Arab world and yet Muslim men get away with it in many other countries, so knowing that some Muslims countries consider forced sexual intercourse is a crime even if she was his wife is surprising.
In Saudi Arabia men have total control of their wives! They legally can imprison their wives at home and not let them go to work, school or even visit their family, women must obey their husband, if a woman disobeyed her husband the husband have the right to beat her.
in most rape cases in the arab world, women are considered criminals not victims, we all read about the Saudi girl from Qatife who was raped by 7 men and was sentenced to jail for being alone with those men without a male guardian ( brother, father or a son) and they made it all her fault
In most Arab countries they kill girls who were raped ( honor killing) because they believe that they are clearing their family’s name by killing her. I know it does not make sense, but thats how it is. Just to let you know that those who are accused of Honor killing ( wether because their sisters, daughters were raped or had premarital sex) will get a soft punishment or penlty like 5 years in persion or so.
