This Muslim family made headlines after the mother decided to kill her own baby after being raped by the child's grandfather. The attempt was allegedly done to preserve the honor of the family and avoid disgrace in the eyes of the people in their town.
Stunned by what she saw, the mother quickly acted in what is believed to be the only way to avoid shame in their family, and that is by killing the baby with her own hands.<
Traces of blood were found inside the baby's anus according to reports done by the medical staff. Local police authorities arrested the two and was charged with rape and murder respectively. This kind of news is nothing short of surprising under Islam which honor killings and punishment under Sharia law are prevalent.
The Sharia law requires a woman accusing a man of rape to provide four witnesses to testify on her behalf or otherwise, she will be sentenced to death or extra-marital sex.
This is the reason why many children and women suffer sexual abuse in silence.
