Woman Arrested for Being Raped


A British woman who reported being raped has been arrested by Dubai police for violating Islamic law by having sex out of wedlock, and now faces a possible 6 year prison sentence.

Both the alleged rapist and the victim’s boyfriend have been charged with having sex with her outside of marriage as well.

The 23-year-old woman, a UK citizen of Pakistani descent and herself a Muslim, was visiting Dubai together with her 44-year-old fiancée, whom she is said to be due to marry.

The woman reported becoming drunk at a hotel bar, and subsequently being raped by a waiter who followed her into the toilets at the same establishment.

She and her partner resolved to report the attack, but police were apparently more concerned with her drinking and sexual relations with her future husband than the alleged crime, charging both her and her paramour with illegal drinking and having sex outside of marriage.

They each face a possible maximum sentence of six years.

The man accused of raping her, who claims she consented, faces charges as well, but for having sex out of marriage rather than for rape.

Police are said to have insisted on blood tests to prove she was drinking, but refused to medically examine her for evidence until the British embassy became involved.

Her cell-mate is quoted as saying police were less than sympathetic:

“She’s a British girl but a Muslim, so I think they were tougher on her because of that.

She was trying to report the rape but soon realised the policemen were more interested in how often she has sex with her boyfriend.”

Superficially modern Dubai upholds relatively mild standards of Sharia law, usually applied leniently to its many international visitors, though in other respects it possesses the same medieval social attitudes as seen in the rest of the Arab world.

Via The Telegaph.

Update: Dubai authorities claim the woman’s rape claim was spurious, and have generously withdrawn charges of sex (with her husband) outside wedlock after the woman managed to prove she was already married… The couple still face charges of imbibing alcohol.

    Muslims need to open eyes and realize that their religious laws are wrong. It's time for a revolution against religion.

    This has nothing to do with a muslim religion or law, this is just - regardless of religion - pure inanity by human. So stop accusing any sort of religion every time and think about the grade of your perception and hermeneutics. Apart from that, neither a single human will have a "better religion", nor there will be a "better world".

    The solution begins productive, not destructive.

    thank you for your response , as always sankaku shows extreme bigotry against islam and muslims , and i would love to sue them american style if i could , but i can't so i satisfy myself with replying that what happened was not sharia law but stupid moronic police officers having "fun" and their bosses trying to cover up for their mistakes by blaming the woman , the correct punishment in sharia law would be that the rapists would be executed , and the police officers correctly punished , with NO punishment for the woman , that is sharia law , but since you are so immersed in the new islamophobia rage going on since 9/11 you are too blind for your bigotry .

    and moderators and site masters, since you love writing all these article about racism and about government abusing it's citizens i have lots of stories for you to write about ISRAEL , yeah that right israel , as a palestinian who lives is israeli controlled territories ,i've seen people beaten ,tortured humiliated by the israeli army and police, and heard about a thousand stories more complete with video evidence . one of them shows a picture of israeli comments on facebook about a horrible bus accident that resulted in the death of more than a dozen kindergarten palestinian children ,and shows comment of how they are happy about it , why don't i see something like this on sankaku??? if it was about something about something done by "muslims" who live in village in god knows were and think know islam by illiterate village standards and think that you can marry an underage girl because they think it's allowed in islam well you are wrong ,it's not allowed in islam by sharia law in which some say 15 as a minumum age for marraige while others say 18 as minimum ,if a girl got married at a younger age its done by rural bumpkin law not islamic law, which is the same if you are in china ,south africa or redneck america regardless of religion .

    i have no problem with jews , and as cliche as it may seem two of my best friends are jews , i'am talking about israel as a country that has isued racist laws concerning non-jews living there, and i DARE you to write an article about israel if you have the balls for it . but anything against israel even when it's their fault get forgiven since then use the holocaust card and you say : awwwww, since they suffered by what our ancestors in europe did and by hitler lets allow them do do racial discrimination and ethnic cleansing , and let them commit genocide ,they suffered too much so let palestinians suffer because of our mistakes.

    as a side note loli lovers burn in hell and rot in prison and get raped a lot .

    You guys are a bunch of old fags. I want you to find as many articles like this on sankaku as you can and tell me how many of them have to do with islam. Besides anyone muslim who has a half a brain can tell you not to go to Dubai, that place is full of people who confuse religion with culture and the rest of the muslims in this shit.

    This is curious though, she is accused of sex out of wedlock (strange islamic laws, oh well) and illegal drinking

    now, explain me, how is it illegal, because:
    A) she drank out of wedlock
    B) She drank being a woman
    C) She drank when she should have bombed the illegal bar

    now, which one is the true? details please!

    Yeah even VICTIMS OF RAPE can and are punished for having sex before marriage.

    a 14 yr old girl in Bangladesh who was raped by her uncle got sentence of 100 lashes with bamboo cane for sex outside marriage and died after 60. They also stated they realized she was raped, but still had to be punished. In that rural muslim area, girls don't urinate until night (because they have no toilets) and at dusk they are all going out to the woods to piss, that is when her own uncle caught her. His wife caught him raping her and beat the fuck out of the girl.

    I don't think it's right to generalize here.

    We don't know the full story of the case so it ain't right to judge.

    Islamic Law is complex and it takes years of research and learning, its the same with different laws in the world.

    Also there's miscarriages of justice in the west including the United Stats. No one is perfect.

    Stop painting Muslims with the same bash as backwards.

    Would you write this kind of hatred if it was not a Muslim country?

    Would you paint all black people as criminals because a black person committed a rape?

    Also what's this got to do with the context of this website?

    Anon will now answer all of Anon's questions, in order.

    When generalization leads to an accurate and predictable pattern of real events, then the generalization becomes valid.

    You can follow the link at the bottom of the article for the full story. It is therefore okay to judge.

    Islamic law, and most law systems actually, are rather simple if you bother to read them. Sharia Law happens to be simply the most thoroughly unjust law system in existence.

    Nobody is fully perfect, but some are more so than others. The United States are undoubtedly bad, but still a whole lot better than any middle eastern country.

    All Muslims, by willingly following Islam, have proved themselves to be backwards.

    If it were a non-Muslim country, this situation would never happen.

    No, but that has absolutely nothing to do with this because Islam, unlike being black, has rules that encourage such behavior.

    This website is Sankaku Complex. It has no context, and never will.

    Yes my friend your happy to say Muslims are backwards and calling unjust on this board but you would not say it in front of a Muslim.

    Laws can be simple but it depends on the cases that are presented, which makes criminal cases quiet complex because you have to prove the crime in a court of law, if there's no evidence.

    We don't much about this case or what the outcome will be but generally we can only hope Justice can be made.

    United States is a lot better? Oh yeah sure is that why they have the death penalty in some states? I have been to the Middle East my friend I can say to you the people there are just the same as the west.

    Its not as bad as FOX NEWS makes it out to be.

    Actually, I tell Muslims that their religion is backwards and unjust to their faces quite often.

    Justice can never be made through a law that is itself unjust. Why should sex outside marraige be wrong? Because some guy said so hundreds of years ago? Feh.

    Yes, the United States has the death penalty. So does every country in the Middle East except Turkey, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. And as rated by the United Nations quality of life index, the USA is the 13th best country in the world. The highest ranking Middle Eastern country is Israel at 38th place, and the highest ranking Muslim country is Qatar at 41st.

    You see, I actually did some research for my arguments. Did you?

    I'm muslim :3

    But it's known that some Saudi Arabians usually have biased views on all other types of people; whether they are muslim or not. I guess this was the case here, It can be called Shariah law; but that doesn't necessarily mean it is @_@.

    So what's with all the hate of "Muslims" when people don't want to even understand the religion itself or the people who follow it, they just take a few excerpts from the quran; extract and analyze a quote to be put in the wrong way and then come to a consensus that all of us are bad.

    Things like this news article also just adds fuel to the fire >_>

I hate you and all your kith and kin, your sharia laws, your slavery, your misogyny, and I understand Islam completely, I have read the Qu'ran and Haddiths, considering 45% of ALL muslims are illiterate it is accurate to say most muslims know less than I do.

    My sister in law lives there. These women in RICH muslim countries are just as "pure" as Christians in rich christian countries. The girls give it to their boyfriend in the ass (seriously) just as "christian" american girls give oral. Yet they still call themselves virgins.

    The moral here is only poor people have real morals.

    uh, isn't the moral here that you just better be rich enough to afford a room where people won't spy on you having sex?

    well, I guess it could also be that you better live in a place where people aren't so miserable that their only joy is to cause the misery of other people by reporting them, but I don't want to make assumptions

    I did not read any comments but have a good idea about what they would be like nonetheless. I am a Muslim and am from Pakistan.
    This thing is pretty common here.

    You get raped. You report it. You get accused of adultery/fornication. You are doomed.
    This is why so many people are scared of reporting it in the first place.
    I can only guess why it is. It's probably because of the many attempts by women to get revenge on men by falsely accusing them. It's true that most women -no- most girls are heeded. If a girl accuses you, you are finished. A friend of mine had a similar experience.

    That's why women aren't heeded no more.

    Well.. Muslims ARE stupid, tyrannical, rapists, hypocrites, suicide bombers, etc. You don't need a low minded thinking about that since they've proven so in the past. There's no "true Muslim", no "true Christian" nor any true religious fags.

    Christians, too are stupid, tyrannical, rapists, hypocrites, but not suicide bombers at least.

    No religion offers peace. They offer loads of batshit and big words of faith and harmony when in fact in the end, the damn pope wants damn power and that's there's all to it.

    P.S. Muslim is a screwed religion along with their laws. They treat women like shit and their men act all mighty and faggy.
