I'm mad as hell!

Afghan women are committing suicide because there is no escape from the violence and brutality in their daily lives. Violence, rape, and murder against women and girls are a common occurrance despite international protest. A confidential report from a hospital in the province of Herat, Afghanistan, show that in one year more than 80 women, many in their early 20s, set themselves on fire and in many cases they died.
Even though other countries put pressure on the Afghanistan government rape law ( the right for men to rape their wives) the practice still occurs.
Another common practice is honour killings of a daughter or wife. Not only the men but older women encourage it as well; and it seems to be brough to other countries by those who support it. What's with people who practice such primitive cruelty to their own women? very mad very mad

What can we do about it? I would be open to something it was possible I could do. dunno I agree with you. It's inhuman and a terrible, terrible, terrible thing. sad flower
I’ve read this article yesterday... One feels helpless. And the second thought: there’s a lot of women and children in the “civilized” world that also suffer from domestic violence.

very mad very mad very mad i share ur outrage brother...

i do have one question about marriage... do you feel the womans body belong to the woman and she may refuse him??

how can you rape ur own wife....to have and to hold....

the christian teaching about marriage is clear ..for the christians

then husbands body does not just belong to the husband but ALSO to the wife... and the wifes body does not belong just to the wife ..but ALSO to the husbanddoh comfort

BUT i confess i am ignorant about the goings on in Afghanistan.. suicide is a very big problem where i live ... Brother we life in the same province... but i live in the area of the highest suicides rate in that province...

hopelessness mixed with an abusive culture and lifestyle are everywhere.crying moping crying

calmheart asks ..what can we do...wave handshake ...the question remains.....

take care my friend.... and try not to have a heart attackhandshake cheers
Where does Afghanistan get this 'attitude' to women from?

It can't be because they are muslims - I don't believe other muslim countries behave as badly as this towards their women! I've watched things on TV that indicate that women are definitely treated as second class citizens in many places, and not necessarily muslim countries, but this is extreme behaviour.

I've heard the same stories about life in Pakistani villages (on TV).

Is it the Taliban - it must be. And where do they originate from? Why are they allowed to bring that culture into a country?

And, if the locals don't like the Taliban, why do they adopt their customs?

So many questions, but no answers.

I hope my post doesn't offend anyone because it's not meant to. All the muslims I know are no different from anyone else and treat people with equal respect. I wasn't trying to open up the debate to target muslims, just the Taliban. I hate everything they stand for.
IS I AGREE ITS A DISGRACE,BUT THERE ALL OFF THERE GAMES REALLY ,BOMIN INNOCENT ,IF THERE WAS SOMETHING WE COULD DO SIGN MY NAME UP,ITS SAD REALLY ,STONED 2 DEATH BY ROCKS CAUSE OF HAVIN AFFAIR,HEARTS OF STONE sad flower
I feel for these women. It makes think of how I often feel badly for myself when I really have it so good compared to many. I feel the anger too every time I hear one of these stories. And to know the practice is still continued. Not just there but they move to our land and still you will hear a story where it is continued over here. Except when done here they are arrested. Does that undo the wrong. No. blues Sadly it will take a long time for change if ever to come in these countries. I will keep them in my heart. You are not alone in your outrage.
Amnesty International mentions this muchly. I want to say clitectomy is of sharia laws, too .. it is bizarre to us in the free world so to speak.

You have a right to be mad as hell, lad.
