Once the Brazilian parents learned their daughter was being arrested they changed their story.  They are now arguing that the event never happened.  They’d understandably rather have the man not facing rape charges, then having their innocent 14-year old daughter being whipped or even stoned to death.

So far the courts seem focused on proving that the teen was having consensual sex with the bus driver.  They say they have texts from the girl where she is inviting the adult male to her apartment.

“According to Sharia law, the girl is considered to be an adult since she has reached the age of puberty. As she contacted the accused on her own, the incident is considered to be consensual on her part”. – Chief Justice Abdul Bashir

The crime of fornication is very serious in Sharia law.  It is called Zina.  Some hadiths require a woman or young girl committing Zina be whipped 80 times, while more strict holders to the law say Mohammad called for stoning such women.

“Acquire it from me, acquire it from me. The Almighty ALLAH has revealed the directive about women who habitually commit fornication about which He had promised to reveal. If such criminals are unmarried or are the unsophisticated youth, then their punishment is a eighty stripes and exile and if they are widowers or are married, then their punishment is a hundred stripes and death by stoning.” — Sahih Muslim, 1690

There is no doubt that if the two had sex then she was raped.  In America we call it statutory rape and the underage person is always the victim.  In Sharia law the man can still be charged for statutory rape but the real brunt of the punishment falls on the victim if she can’t prove she was forcibly raped.

No matter what the media tries to say, we must hold a light to cases like this one.  People need to know how Sharia law makes criminals out of victims – especially when those victims are women and children.  It is foolish and dangerous for so many to claim that there is nothing wrong with this barbaric legal system.
