United Kingdom--A husband who knocked out his virgin wife with chloroform and raped her has been jailed for eight years.
The 35-year-old man tied the woman to a bed and knocked her out using the 'obsolete Victorian anaesthetic' on at least two occasions during their six weeks of marriage.
The woman, a Bangladeshi immigrant who was 21 at the time, had repeatedly refused to have sex with her new husband because she was too nervous.
The husband, who cannot be named for legal reasons, poured the chloroform onto a towel, pressed it over her face, then tied her up before raping her at his home in Poplar, east London.
Judge Timothy King said the rapist had regarded his wife as a 'chattel' he could use as he wanted.
He said: 'The victim was a vulnerable young woman, she had made her unwillingness abundantly clear and you would not take no for an answer.
'Her views were of no consequence as far as you were concerned.
'Given that you used chloroform to rape her, this was very much a contrived and premeditated act in which you subdued her capacity to resist.' . . .
The victim married her husband in a 'simple Islamic ceremony at his flat in Poplar' on 12 April 2009, the court heard.
'She says she was forced to marry him, and it certainly seems that the period of time between the defendant first meeting her and the marriage ceremony was extremely short,' said the prosecutor.
On the night of their marriage, the husband tried to have sex with his wife, but she refused, saying it was normal to wait two days before sleeping together.
When he tried again 48 hours later, she tried to put him off again with another excuse.
'The defendant would not take no for an answer,' said Mr Hearnden.
'On at least two occasions between the day of the marriage ceremony and 9 May, the defendant had sexual intercourse with her without her consent.
'The method, we say, was the same each time. He would tie her hands up with a scarf in the bedroom and he would make her senseless by putting some of the chloroform onto a towel, wetting it, and holding it against her mouth.
'It would make her totally helpless during the rapes,' he said. 'She could feel pain and burning.'
The situation continued until 9 May, when a blazing row broke out at the marital home and the woman was badly beaten.
Police were called to the flat, at which point the woman took them to her bedroom and showed them the bottle of chloroform, which was large enough to hold around a litre of the drug.
She indicated what had been done to her in broken English and sign language, the court heard.
When her husband was questioned, he initially said they had never had sex and then said they had slept together but it was consensual. (Source)

Muslim Man Knocks Out Frightened Bride with Chloroform in Order to Rape Her
But Kim says that a woman can refuse to have sex with her husband if she doesn't feel like having sex. Why do Muslim men keep following Muhammad's commands, rather than Kim's Westernized version of Islam? I just don't get it.
