Some crimes are so heinous that the death penalty seems woefully lacking in justice. A story out of Saudi Arabia is one such crime. The crime occurred a month ago but the police just announced it two days ago. A group of Muslim men gang raped a three year old girl. They took turns violating her, before they dumped her off at a hospital, where she is fighting for her life still.
Doctors at the hospital say the girl is still in a coma and fighting for life. Hospital manager, Mohammed Ali said, “She has been raped violently by some men. She was found crying of excruciating pain as her body was full of bruises and her sensitive parts were ruptured.” She was bleeding from the vagina.
“These are human wolves and worse than animals. They have violated all human and religious values with this heinous crime. We hope she will respond to treatment and recover although doctors believe she will suffer from a trauma for the rest of her life.”
So far, police have arrested three men and two women who were involved in the attack. Abdullah Mohammad Nasser witnessed a car dump her off at the hospital and then sped off. Police did not say if they suspected there to be more attackers or arrests.
Earlier this month, a Saudi preacher was convicted of torturing his five year old daughter with a cane and killing her because he doubted her virginity in 2011. He was sentenced to 600 lashes and 8 years in prison. A woman was sentenced to 200 lashes for being raped.
Earlier this year a Saudi cleric, recommended that women dress their young babies in burka to help prevent them from being molested.
