"Raped Women Should be Hanged according to Islam"
Two high-ranking Indian politicians have outraged people across the world with their accusation that raped women deserve to be hanged as well.
Abu Azmi, a senior member of Indiaâs Socialist Party, told local news station NDTV, âRape is punishable by hanging in Islam but here, nothing happens to women, only to men. Even the woman is guilty.â
Azmi continued, âAny woman if, whether married or unmarried, goes along with a man, with or without her consent, should be hanged. Both should be hanged. It shouldnât be allowed even if a woman goes by consent.â
Azmiâs comments were supported by the partyâs leader Mulayam Singh Yadav. According to Yadav, men convicted of rape should be forgiven because âboys will be boys.â
Yadav also made a statement that suggested women often lie and cry rape. âFollowing a girl-boy fight, the girl complains she was raped.â
Yadav, who is running for Prime Minister, said he would abolish the death penalty for rape.
The comments are eerily similar to one made by a Tea Party member, who called for women to be equally punished as men if they need to get an abortion when raped. Scottie Hughes, ânewsâ director of the Tea Party News Network, believes that life begins at conception, and thus any and all abortion should be punishable under the law.

If a woman is raped and she goes to a doctor, and the doctor terminates the pregnancy â Please tell me who deserves the longest jail sentence? The rapist, the doctor or the woman? In order.â
Tea Party nit-wit Scottie Hughes answers, âAcross the board.â
âAll three of them?â Fugelsang asks.
âGo for it!â Said Hughes.[/box]
