15-Year-Old Afghan Girl Beheaded For Rejecting Marriage Proposal

Posted by   + Show Post


KUNDUZ, Afghanistan (CBSDC) — Afghan police arrest two men for allegedly beheading a 15-year-old girl after her father turned down a marriage proposal.

According to BBC News, the two men who proposed the arranged marriage and attacked her are relatives of the girl.

“Our investigation shows those who killed her were people who wanted to marry her,” a Kunduz province police official told the BBC.

The father did not want his daughter to get married because she was “too young to be engaged.”

CNN reports the girl was killed near her family’s home while bringing back water.

According to The Washington Post, dozens of Afghan women kill themselves each year in order to avoid arranged marriages.

Religion and Theocracies often suck-

All of them, if you look at history.

That is one of the most horrific, painful, and terrifying ways to die.  People who can kill others this way are monsters.

Horrible when the best thing I can hope is that she died quickly.

Article said they were arrested. I hope they aren't just released without any punishment.
