Hena Begum was a fourteen year old girl growing up in the Shariatpur region of Bangladesh until her forty year old cousin decided to rape her.

After she was raped, the rapist and his family then beat her until she was unconscious.

Next, the local Sharia (Islamic) courts ruled that yound Hena should receive 101 lashes for the crime of adultery — for the crime of being a child raped by an adult.

The Muslim clerics took the young girl, who still could not stand on her own, to a public square and proceeded to deliver the 101 lashes. After receiving 80 lashes, young Hena collapsed. Her family was allowed to take her to a hospital where she died from her wounds.

The child’s father, Dorbesh Khan, was also ordered to pay a fine equal to approximately $700 USD — quite a considerable sum in a nation which is suffering under the poverty which almost inevitably results from Islamic rule.

The rapist, Mahbub Khan, had been previously convicted of rape and sentenced to marry his rape victim. The rape victim from that encounter was one of the family members who helped beat young Hena unconscious before her “trial.” Mahbub has since disappeared in order to avoid punishment for this more recent rape.

What sort of people would beat a fourteen year old girl to death in a public square — and call it justice? This is not the sort of religious tolerance that I as a moral human being am willing to accept.

More and more I am disgusted by the non-attention the world has not brought to the plight of young girls maimed, murdered by the hands pf fathers, uncles. What country is going to stand up and say, enough is enough?
One day it was America the world looked to. We have sadly betrayed that trust.

Beth, I uploaded many stories about Muslims and how they treat their family and non-Muslims and no-one is the least bit interested. Christians and Muslim children don't count unless Hamas in Gaza have killed them and are pretending to the world that it is Israel's fault.

This poor girl did nothing but suffer and now her family are going to suffer because they are being punished financially, just because Muslim males can't keep their dicks in their pants and no-one condemns them for it despite incident after incident. A 2 year old Christian girl, a 4 year old Christian girl, Muslim girls and boys attacked with acid by their own father, being sold into sex slavery by their parents....the silence from our governments and the UN is deafening.

I bet you the “slithering snake on the ground” thought the court system would rule for him to marry Hena as well.
The Islamic ideology that operates under the guise of religion is the sickest mind-set under the sun. Even the mind-set for war is sounder than Islam!!!!

Across the world,the silence is deafening. I am outraged. I am appalled. I am sickened. I am heartbroken that this child was murdered and there has been no outcry by the UN nor UNICEF.
That the law/religion(one and the same)actively colluded with the rapist and his family to destroy this little girl.
No religion should ever be above the law but when the religion and the law are one- unless there is outside intervention- the old sexist/misogynistic customs laws//traditions/dogma and doctrine will continue.
Such atrocious and barbaric practices need to be made transparent to the rest of the world- they should be published in newspapers/radio/television wherever and whenever possible. Let the rest of the world.

Heart breaking. This system needs to change. Hena suffered the most abhorrent treatment, first by her cousin, then by his family and finally by the "law". As long as we stay silent we dishonour Hena and others like her.

Noted, tweeted, tweeted, shared. I work very hard not to be too judgmental against other cultures, but this makes no sense. Kill a girl who is raped by a serial rapist, and nothing happens to him. If this is what it means to be Muslim, I can't understand how any woman would willing stay in the country. I think if I survived to adulthood, I would take my children and try to escape. The worst that would happen is they would kill me, and that would probably happen anyway if some man decided to rape or sexually abuse me. This is sick!

If this had happened in Israel (hard to believe) the UN would be voting on a resolution to condemn it and Obama would be raging from his Bully Pulpit, but, as usual, the daily atrocities across the Muslim occupied world go uncondemned and unreported in our Islamist appeasing media, including supposedly human rights loving Care2.

Appalling. The good news is that the Bangladeshi government does seem to take a dim view on this murder. The Pakistanis and Saudis et al would probably have given this lowlife a party.

Yes, Gillian, where are all the usual Islamist apologists to call this a 'Zionist' plot? Hypocrites!

This reminds me of the 14 year old girl in the Islamic paradise of Saudi Arabia who was raped by her brother and his drunken friends, impregnated, then forced to have the baby after which she was taken out and stoned to death publicly for her lack of morals. Oh, her brother and other rapists got nothing, of course, being men and Muslims.

Thanks Beth, for sharing this tragedy.

In what religion it is allowed to beat or stone your daughter, a young girl, or any person, to death, without being prosecuted? It is babaric and makes me sick to my stomach.
This poor girl was the victim of a crime and got beaten up for being a victim and then at the end she was beaten to death! This is unbelievable, I have no word to express my anger against these kind of muslims!
And there are lots of "this kind" of muslims out there! It is horrible and frightening what some ot them can do to women!

This young girl was victimised by her rapist, his family, and a third time by the Sharia courts. Where is there evidence that she did anything wrong? There isn't any because she is innocent in a culture that sees women as chattels. I suppose the Sharia court decided that she 'enticed' the rapist. I heard a Canadian use that defence when he was tried for raping a two year old --- the two year old entied him. Right, and he is now doing 10 or 20 years in prison.

Sharia law is too often Islam run amuck. I have a number of Islamic friends and this kind of thing is totally beyond their belief. Actions like this are so often carried out in poor, undereducated areas, and if you ask me, are meant to instill fear and compliance.

Truly , truly sick!

CBS) Three years ago, Razan Fayez was working as a family law attorney at the Tahirih Justice Center, a Virginia-based non-profit organization that helps women and children around the world who are fleeing forced marriages, so-called "honor violence," and genital mutilation in places like Togo and Pakistan find safety in the United States.

Watch a sneak peek of Saturday's 48 Hours Mystery: A Family's Honor

But things changed one Wednesday morning when Fayez got a call from an attorney working with a women's shelter in Texas.

The shelter, said the caller, needed advice on how to help a 16-year-old girl who had run away from home because her parents were about to send her overseas to enter a forced marriage. Now, said the caller, the parents were threatening to sue the shelter if they kept the girl.

"I remember feeling an overwhelming sense of urgency," says Fayez. "If she goes off to be married against her will, she'll be raped."

Fayez advised that the shelter could go to court and file an order of protection for the girl against her parents. She scrambled to make connections - child protective services has apparently said they didn't want to get involved in a "cultural issue," remembers Fayez - but it was for naught. When she came to work the next Monday, the attorney for the shelter said the girl had gone back to her family.

Two weeks later, the center received another call, this one by a woman trying to figure out how to save her step-daughter from female genital mutilation.

"I had heard that these things happened in the U.S., but this really opened my eyes to it," says Fayez.

Although many Americans may think that phenomena such as forced marriages and so-called "honor killings" exist only overseas, social service agencies, educators, and a growing number of law enforcement personnel know differently. According to a survey the Tahirih Justice Center conducted of more than 500 social service, religious, legal, educational and medical agencies last year, 67 percent responded that they believed there were cases of forced marriage occurring among the populations they serve, but only 16 percent felt their agency was equipped to deal with the situation.

"We don't have the mechanisms in place here in the U.S. to take care of these girls," says Det. Chris Boughey of Arizona's Peoria Police Department. "What do we do with a teenager runaway? Ninety-nine percent of the time, we take her home. But some of these girls end up getting killed."

Boughey should know. In October 2009, he was the lead investigator in the murder of 20-year-old Noor Almaleki, who was run down in broad daylight by her father who was angry that she had become too westernized and did not want to accept a marriage her father had arranged for her in the family's native Iraq, according to Det. Boughey.

On Saturday, 48 Hours Mystery tells the story of how Noor came to such a violent end.

According to the AHA Foundation, a non-profit group dedicated to eradicating religious or culturally sanctioned violence against western women, honor violence "describes physical violence against a woman or girl by another family member for engaging in behavior deemed by the family to be shameful." An "honor killing" is an extension of this violence, taken to the extreme and often involving the participation of multiple family members.

"Honor killings" have been reported in countries around the world. Just last month, the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan released its annual report estimating that in 2011 at least 943 women and girls were murdered in familial "honor killings," including 93 minors. According to the report, most of the women were killed by husbands or brothers. "Illicit relations" were cited as a reason for 595 cases, and demanding to marry a partner of their choice was noted in 219 cases.

In Iraq, where Noor Almaleki's family emigrated from, a World Health Organization report found that in 2006-2007, 83 percent of women reported experiencing "controlling behavior" by their husbands and 21 percent reported being victims of physical violence. According to a 2011 report by Human Rights Watch, Iraqi law "limits the prison sentence to less than three years for an honor killing of a wife by her husband."

In 2000, the United Nations estimated that approximately 5,000 women worldwide were victims of "honor killings" each year, though experts believe that number is low.

"We have very poor data on honor violence," says Nisha Varia, a senior researcher at Human Rights Watch. "It's such a difficult phenomenon to accurately record because many don't get reported, or they happen in remote areas, or are classified as something else."

And if international data is bad, American data is practically non-existent. No national or state agency attempts to collect data on any kind of "honor" violence, including murders. But we know they are taking place in North America. In January, three members of one Canadian family - a father, mother and brother - were convicted of four counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of three of the family's daughters and the father's other wife. The four women's bodies were found submerged in a car in June 2009, and according to the New York Times, police wiretaps recorded the father, Mohammad Shafia, who had brought his family to Canada from Afghanistan in 2007, saying that his daughters had disgraced him by dating and wearing what he thought was inappropriate clothing.

Last month, Phoenix police arrested the mother, father and sister of 19-year-old Aiya Altameemi after they allegedly beat her, restrained her and burned her for reportedly talking to a boy and refusing to enter into an arranged marriage with a 38-year-old man, reports CBS affiliate KPHO. The family, originally from Iraq, pleaded not guilty to charges of suspicion of aggravated assault and unlawful imprisonment. Their next court date is April 18.

On March 5, Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, wrote an editorial that appeared in the Arizona Republic and USA Today saying that Altameemi's beating and Almaleki's death were not isolated incidents in the U.S.: "For every Noor Al-Maleki and Aiya Al-Tameemi, there are hundreds of other cases of honor abuse, from the mild to the extreme, that are often brought on by things like dating, drinking, dressing "immodestly" or rejecting Islam," wrote Jasser.

But the very notion that violence in the name of "honor" happens in the United States is controversial. Many people worry that focusing on these problems will spark increased anti-Arab and anti-Muslim sentiment. Crimesider contacted a prosecutor in Michigan who worked on the case of 45-year-old Rahim Alfelawi, an Iraqi immigrant who reportedly confessed to murdering his 20-year-old daughter, Jessica Mokdad, in May 2011. The prosecutor, whose name Crimesider is withholding, was adamant that the case, which is listed on AHA's website as an "honor killing," was no such thing.

"This has little or nothing to do with Arabic culture," wrote the prosecutor in an email. "It has everything to do with male domination of women, something that transcends cultures."

He went on to write that the family does not want Jessica's death "used by the media to promote a continued Arab bias," whether or not the facts of the case showed that her father was unhappy with her living a freer, more American style life than he would have liked.

Evan Misshula, a graduate student at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York, understands the prosecutor's discomfort at creating a category of crime that seems to target a certain culture or religion. When he and his supervisor were first approached by the AHA Foundation last year to collaborate on a symposium and research project about honor violence he was wary, concerned about doing research that might be perceived as biased, but quickly warmed to the idea.

"It is an issue that has got to be addressed," says Misshula.

But, as AHA's communication director Amanda Parker, put it, "Without numbers, it's hard to get funding and get law enforcement to pay attention and get people to take it seriously."

And so, last June, AHA and John Jay College held a symposium on the subject of honor violence, featuring speakers such as Det. Boughey and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the founder of AHA. Ali is the author of "Infidel," a memoir of her strict Muslim upbringing in Somalia, and "Nomad: From Islam to America." Perhaps because of her unique position, Ali is not squeamish about focusing her efforts to eradicate honor violence on radical Islamic communities.

"The women in these cultures don't own their bodies," she told attendees at the symposium. "Their sexuality is a commodity and it's of high value which is owned by their families." If a young woman refuses to comply with her father's choice of a husband for her (as Noor Almaleki did) "this strips the father of his honor...Fathers will kill their daughters over this."

AHA and John Jay have embarked on research that they hope will lead to greater understanding, awareness and ultimately prevention of honor violence in the U.S. They've taken cues from the United Kingdom, which is ahead of the U.S. when it comes to studying and addressing this issue. According to Nazir Afzal, the Director of the Crown Prosecution Service, there are approximately 12 honor killings in the U.K. each year, and most of the victims of honor violence are women between 15 and 24 years of age.

But thanks to women like Jasvinder Sanghera, a survivor of forced marriage and the founder of Karma Nirvana, an organization for victims of forced marriages and honor violence in the U.K., women in Great Britain now have somewhere to turn. Karma Nirvana operates a hotline to connect women to social services and in 2007 they helped get the Forced Marriage Protection Act passed by the country's Parliament.

Armed with the research John Jay is gathering, and with the help of Sanghera - who is interviewed in Saturday's 48 Hours episode - AHA is hoping to develop the same resources for women living in America.

"Now, when a girl goes to police or her school counselor and says, 'My dad wants to kill me because a boy sent me flowers,' to Western ears it sounds like she's exaggerating," explains AHA's Parker. "But we have to leave our cultural assumptions at the door and take her seriously."

Disgustingly, this is not even the first time I've heard of such a thing. It seems to be an every day occurrence among the adherents of the religion of "peace", right down to the rapists family joyfully joining in the beating. I don't like the drone strikes, I don't think they show us at our best, I think due process is something everyone should be entitled to but if I were to make an exception, and in cases like this I would, I'd send a SEAL team in to wipe out that entire accursed family AND the "court" that ordered her further punishment, in effect a death sentence, for it is they who should be removed from the face of earth, sent to the ultimate penalty box as they have forfeited, by their despicable actions, the right to walk freely amongst civilized people. This "religion" is going to be the source of virtually all discontent and violence in this century and any country that is dealing with it by appeasement is going to find out the hard way you can appease those who are morally bankrupt and forever broken. There is no treatment that can fix this barbarians, none but removal from the planet as there is not a prison big enough to hold them and leaving them to run countries, well, THAT results in THIS. There is a cloud of horror approaching and its face is Islam.

Tom Y. and Kathy Chadwell,

EXACTLY! These things are pandemic in the Islamic world. People NEED TO KNOW, and too many people don't, because the media gives Islam a free-pass. It's not politically-correct, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), intimidates those who would put out this information with the threat of expensive lawsuits.

The truth needs to come out for the sake of victims and potential victims alike. This administration is also complicit in keeping these things secret and allowing thousands upon thousands of immigrants from Islamic countries in every year, who bring with them the culture of misogyny, FGM, honor killings, rape of non-Muslim women and so on. People are just blindsided, because the media, academia, and government self-censor.

Please, everyone, do read, look beneath the surface. These issues are mushrooming and they truly threaten to touch us all, and spread the word. Thank you for your comments.

Jesus was cursed for them .. the chastisement of their peace was upon Him... but they refuse it.... hence ..they are cursed.....Many yet though will come to Christ before the final page is turned.

Somebody optimistically mentioned that just maybe, the UN might get involved in this sort of situation that appears to be quite common in Saudi Arabia. Let us start with the UN Human Rights Commission and we see that Saudi Arabia is a member of this group along with other noteworthy champions of mercy and justice within their own countries like Libya, Nigeria, Uganda, Bangladesh, People's Republic of China, Qatar, Russian Federation, Cuba and a few more – fat chance of anything happening here. It is I fear, a bit like sending in a battalion of mosquitoes to combat malaria. Then we have UNICEF that being largely reliant on volunteers and charity lacks the political muscle to take on the main UN crowd and history indicates that even the UN Security council consistently ignores them. Two things might help the little girls of Saudi Arabia and that would be the replacement of its religious government by a secular one accompanied by the Saudi’s running out of oil. Both of these will be unlikely to happen in the near future but the Saudi Arabia I am sure will combat it all by increasing press censorship thus reducing the leaking of these reports.
