What a shocker! Public rape in Pakistan

Criminal proceedings were instituted in Pakistan against representatives of the Mastoi tribe over an act of vendetta. People from Mastoi tribe arranged a “public” rape of a 18-year-old girl in the village of Mirvala, the Penjab province. The girl belonged to Gujar tribe of lower rank, and she was raped “in return” to the same crime, which had been committed by her brother against a female resident of Mirvala.

The girl was also forced to walk around naked in front of a huge crowd in order to “wash away” the shame from her tribe. The girl’s family was offered to deliver the victim for the public punishment, Mastoi peasants threatened to rape all women and girls of the Gujara clan otherwise.

The Office of the Public Prosecutor instituted criminal proceedings against the judges and executors of the sentence. There are hundreds of different tribes living in Pakistan, a lot of them still stick to the tribal code of honor, which includes the notion of vendetta and tit for tat punishment.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
