A 13-year-old girl has dug herself out of a muddy grave after being raped by two men who then buried her alive in Pakistan.

The teen was abducted from her local village in the Punjab province while she was walking to Koran lessons.

Her father Siddique Mughal told police his daughter had been taken, but they refused to cooperate, Outlook India reported.

The men took the young girl to an isolated place and raped her and then buried her alive as they believed she died during the brutal attack.

But the girl managed to dig her way out the muddy grave and caught the attention of passers-by who helped her to a local medical center.

After local police refused to investigate, the Lahore High Court Chief Justice’s Complaint Cell formally directed them to arrest the girl’s attackers and complete a report on the incident without delay.

A sessions judge for the local Toba Tek Singh region has also been asked to look into the matter.

Child rape remains a problem in Pakistan where local activist group Sahil said cultural myths persist such as HIV positive men believing they can be cured through sex with a virgin.

Statistic show cases of child rape have risen from 668 in 2002 to 2,788 last year, according to the International Business Times.

“We still think these statistics are just a fraction of what’s going on,” Sanihl’s executive director Manizeh Bano told the International Business Times.

The irony here is that the profit Muhammad was supposed to have put an end to this in Arab society. Muslims love to tell non-Muslims that burying daughters alive no longer happens, and how much better off Muslim women are today under Sharia.

Strange it is that I keep seeing stories about Muslims burying their daughters alive. So much for Muslim women being better off under Sharia (and a host of other human rights outrages for women under Sharia).

You're right, Allan, you just couldn't make this stuff up. Who would have guessed the Nazis did the things they did.

Another day and more deplorable actions in these cavemen countries. It seems there is something seriously wrong with the men in these pits. This poor girl will get no justice--how could she when the same repulsive irrational brain dead buffoons are running the show. Totally disgusting. Thx Beth

I never thought I would say this, but the Nazi atrocities seem not as bad as what people are doing today, especially in the name of religion, medicine, or law. Don't think I can actually give thanks until monsters like this are castrated...without anesthetic, then thrown into a pit of starving leeches. Actually, don't think that's bad enough punishment...

Natasha, America has it's sickos too. Add the Religious Extremists and the pro-birthers and they're doing things just as bad to women here...legally.

Thank you for continuing to educate against the widespread horror of rape. Teach your children, friends, anyone who degrades women or is ignorant of these atrocities. The time to evolve is now.

This cultural myth will infect and kill a large percentage of the female population. It could lead to an epidemic with a death rate like we had in the U.S. in the 1980s. I guess lots of young girls will be having HIV infected babies.

The men in these parts of the world will never learn to respect a woman because they look at women as less than them and as a nobody/nothing/has been/whore and the list goes on! If they would only do themselves in health wise with their immorality with each other!

It is sad, but these atrocities occur all over the world! They are unfortunately, not confined to Middle Eastern Countries ~ as many would like us to believe.

Dear Natasha,
It's not a caveman country, just a caveman 'religion'.

The burying of females -- most often daughters -- was a problem that was prevalent around much of the Levant and well past that, especially in the Arabian peninsula. It is said that Muhammad was supposed to have ended this.

The irony here is that many Muslims today point to the "betterment of Islamic society" because Islam supposedly prohibits this. YET, it is precisely in Islamic countries that this horrendous act of burying females alive happens today. In fact the practice has never ended. Not only that, but by and large, Muslims are not punished for burying females.

I saw an article about this happening in Turkey a couple of years ago. It doesn't happen with the Christians or the Jews (most of whom have left with the present Islamist government) in Turkey. It happens EXCLUSIVELY with Muslims.

While there are certainly atrocities happening the world over, some types of atrocities bear the imprimatur of Islam.

- Most Female Genital Mutilations are committed by Muslims

- Most honor killings are committed by Muslims

- Most acid burnings of females are committed by Muslims

- Most beheadings are committed by Muslims

There's a break-point when numbness no longer shields a psyche against some fresh horror -- this onslaught of a headline, and the story it leads, make my heart scream.

And the victim and her father have no recourse.
