Beheading Afghan girl for refusing prostitution condemned

Beheading Afghan girl for refusing prostitution condemned

The Amnesty International strongly condemned the beheading an Afghan girl by her family after she refused prostitution.
“The tragic fate of Mah Gul is one more incident that highlights the violent atmosphere that women and girls face in Afghanistan and the region,” said Suzanne Nossel, Amnesty International USA executive director. “They are raped, killed, forced into marriage in childhood, prevented from obtaining an education and denied their sexual and reproductive rights. Until basic human rights are guaranteed to women and girls in the region, these horrible abuses will continue to be committed.”
Nossel called on the Afghan government to enforce a 2009 law on eliminating violence against women, which the rights organization said is still only sporadically enforced.
Mah Gul, 20, was beheaded after her mother-in-law attempted to make her sleep with a man in her house in Herat province last week, provincial police chief Abdul Ghafar Sayedzada told AFP.
The young woman’s mother-in-law, father-in-law, husband, and alleged killer have all been arrested in connection with the killing.
According to local police chief Abdul Ghafar Sayedzada, the young woman’s mother-in-law tried to make her engage in prostitution multiple times before allegedly luring a man in to kill her. The story comes amid international outcry over the Taliban shooting of Pakistani teen Malala Yousafzai.
Gul was married to her husband four months ago and her mother-in-law had tried to force her into prostitution several times in the past, Sayedzada said.
