Pakistani rapist’s wife offered to victim’s father for punishment

A tribal council in central Pakistan has ordered the surrender of the wife of a rapist to the child victim’s father for retribution, media reports said Tuesday. The council, called a punchayat, was convened in a village near the Punjab Province city of Multan, located 380 kilometres south of Islamabad, after police refused to register a case against a local man for assaulting the minor.

Brothers of the accused man had initially offered one of their four daughters in compensation for the crime, the newspaper Daily Nation said. But the council decreed that the father of the victim could wreak revenge on the man’s wife, who upon hearing the verdict moved to her parents’ home for protection.

Tribal law still applies in many rural areas of Pakistan and it is not uncommon for women and children to be ‘given’ to aggrieved families during the settlement of feuds.

    And yet these kind of news flashes get less attention than i.e. the post I commented at before (same gender couple in Pakistan)… I don’t know what to say now. Allah knows the best.
