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.

Do you have a story where that is happening here?   We should certainly be outraged over it.

Apparently, it's not that it was allowed. The men were arrested,however, I hate to break the news to you, there's thousands of atrocities that happen here in the U.S. also. We just don't hear about all of them, yet that doesn't mean they don't exist. Some are even by judges and other officials. 

Needless to say, this is a horrible story and disgusting. I hope they behead the men after they are torchered (sp). Eye for an Eye. 

Quoting MeAndTommyLee:

Sad indeed.  The same people that condemn it on here will also be the ones that have no respect for this country or our armed forces.  Our freedoms guarantee this would NEVER happen in America because OUR government won't allow it.

How horrible. I can't imagine the pain the family is feeling. I'm sure these men will get what they deserve.

This type of punishment is part of their long history and culture.  It is not an isolated incident.  And you are correct, atrocitieshappen everyday here in the US and they are dealt with by the judicial system.  What you refuse to acknowledge is that there is a large portion of people that DO support the beheading because it is ingrained in their culture.   `Honor killings' as such happen right here in the US and they are committed by persons of the Mid-East culture.
