ISLAMABAD--Pakistani Taliban fighters cut the breasts of a woman who was breastfeeding her child and asked other women to eat the pieces, in a gory incident highlighted in a report on the abuse of women in the militancy-hit tribal belt bordering Afghanistan.
The incident occurred when five militants walked into a house and saw the woman breastfeeding her child, The Express Tribune quoted the report titled ‘Impact of crisis on women and girls in FATA’ as saying.
The report, released by the human rights organisation “Khwendo Kor” (Sisters’ Home in Pashto) with financial support from the UN, is based on case studies of women from the tribal belt living in camps set up in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa for people displaced by militancy.
Women in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas are more susceptible to abuse in a post-conflict scenario, whether or not they are part of the conflict, the report says.
Another revelation is that women in camps were forced to have sex in exchange for food and non-food items. Girls and widows were at greater risk of such abuse.
“A security officer forced me to have sex in exchange for cooking oil and pulses when I was collecting food at the main entrance of the camp,” a 22-year-old woman in Jalozai camp is quoted as saying.
The surveys conducted at relief camps at Nahqai and Jalozai showed that women were uncomfortable going to toilets because men constantly lurked around.
The report said there was also an increase in “honour killings” in which women who were raped were murdered because rape was considered a disgrace to the family.
Forced marriages, honour killings, exchange of women between tribes and marriages with first cousins resulting in disabilities among offspring have made women very dependent, the report said. (Source)

Pakistani Muslims Mutilate Women, Trade Food for Sex
But it would be wrong to judge their culture. Who are we to impose Western values on Muslims?
Honor killings, mutilation of the body and forced sex of Muslim women are forbidden in Islam.
Honor killings and female circumcision are permitted in Islam. And I like how you clarified that forced sex with Muslim women is forbidden.
You must accept that Islam does permit rape of female captive non Muslims.
Now how do you reconcile that in your mind and conscience?
Could you clarify your "mutilation of the body" claim? You seem to think Islam rules out mutilation altogether, when mutilation is explicitly commanded in certain cases (theft, making mischief, etc.).
And could you show us where Islam forbids honor killings?
(Your "forced sex" claim is simply nonsense, so no need for clarification.)
Once you've explained what you mean, I'll post a decisive refutation of your anti-Islamic views.
How long will keep your head buried in sand? How long will you deny the facts?
If you are correct that Islam forbids what you are saying, then why is it that honor killings, forced sex of not only moslim women but non Moslem women by Moslem men, wife beating, women as second class citizens, women not able to drive (Saudi Arabia), women not able to get higher education etc etc exists so much in Islam. Are you telling us that the people who follow ALLAH are so stupid that they can’t understand the perfect and most clear revelation how to treat women.
Lets see what your quran says about some of these things.
1. Forced Sex. Qur'an (2:223) - "Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will..."
2. Forced sex with non Moslem women: Sura 4:24, “Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess. thus hath Allah ordained (prohibitions) against you: except for these, all others are lawful, provided ye seek (them in marriage) with gifts from your property”.
So much for forced sex prohibited in Islam.
3. Women deficient in Intelect. This is why probably they are not allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia. Bukhari (6:301) - "[Muhammad] said, 'Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?' They replied in the affirmative. He said, 'This is the deficiency in her intelligence.'"[Muhammad said] 'Isn't it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?' The women replied in the affirmative. He said, 'This is the deficiency in her religion.'"
4. Wife Beating: Sura 4:34, “As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (next), refuse to share their, beds (and last) beat them (lightly); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance): for Allah is Most High, Great (above you all).” This is also an open license to forced sex.
And yes, I know you are now going to point me to some web site to refute it. Thanks in advance for your refutation.
We have already extensively gone over the forced sex. And it has been proven even by the shcolars that you presented that they agree they can force wives and captives into sex.
So when are you going to start accepting reality and not this figment of your imagination? You are suffering from one of the most severe cases of delusion I have ever encountered!
Kim said, "Honor killings, mutilation of the body and forced sex of Muslim women are forbidden in Islam."
And yet they're happening in Islam Kim.
Mutilation of the body, honor killing, agressive war, mass murder, cultural genocide, abrogation of free will and the individual, and, above all, apostasy toward the profane are the very heart and soul of Islam.
Islam is profane.
The whole of Revelation.
The Word has come, died and risen, there is no revelation after John the Divine.
quote ""Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will..." "
the above Surah was meant to address the permitted way for a man to approach his wife in Islam, and the word "approach your tilth when you will" was meant to address the fact that they're allowed to approach each others at any time as they will as long as it's not in a time of the females "period" .. It's meant to define the forbids and allowances that define physical relationship in marriage, it isn't meant to address the notion of "force" in relationship ..
Ignorants (obviously aswell as opposers of Islam) usually tend to use such instances in the literal meaning and seclude it from occasion where it occurred..
Kindly check occasion and reason of occurrence of each Surah (from Quarn) or Hadith (by the Prophet) before you try to exploit using it.
;it just makes you sound plain Ignorant while you don't.
and yes, the fact that wrong things are happening in so-called Islamic countries, is due to those countries culture, and basically ignorance and the domination of "power notion" and Identification with it rather than identifying with what's humanly and religiously right. Now those sorts of people who say that's it's only their right to persecute such doings will be using the above Surah the way you just used it (exploit it) to their advantage to find some legalization and advocate themselves.
religion is sent from God to cure human kind, Human kind exploit religion and deform it.
and for those who say 'Allah' as they're talking about some unknown alien from Mars. God is "Allah" , it's just the Arabic Islamic word for it! If you're other than Christian or Jewish then I can't blame you if you don't recognize the entity of God 'Allah'
Peace, and may God cure humankind and forgive us our vanity and Errs
Quote "Deleting said...
Kim said, "Honor killings, mutilation of the body and forced sex of Muslim women are forbidden in Islam."

They could be happening in countries that are considered to be Islamic, but it ;(Honor killings, manipulation of the body and forced sex ), isn't allowed by Islam.
*"Honor killings" for instence, follows the culture not the religion . some preserved cultures justify it, some even celebrate it. and it's not even related to Islam.
when a man and a woman commit sin out of the bound of marriage, in Islam costumes; they're both to be punished. and In order for them to be punished, there should be 3 eye witnesses of them practicing that sin. for Islam it's not like a simple as killing the 'female' sinner out of rage. it's not acceptable Islam-wise. But some cultures overlook it or even justify it. and you're welcome to correct them. just don't stick cultural defencies to Islam please!
as for the part of forced sex, I explained above an example of exploitation applied to some of the Quran verses. and yes, people justify those doing of theirs manipulating Quran verses.
for example : the Surah:
""Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because God has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband's) absence what God would have them guard. As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (Next), refuse to share their beds, (And last) beat them (lightly); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them Means (of annoyance): For God is Most High, great (above you all)"
You may notice the Verse that says" (And last) beat them (lightly)" .. some or people may say God allowed me to hit my wife! And they don't even recognize the word "Lightly"
To shed more clear light on the matter, the above verse occurred by God when a man hit his wife, the wife went and complained to him about her husband so the prophet allowed her to take her vengeance back at him for hitting her, then the above verse came from Allah to address the matter. So the prophet called that man again and said to him: " I wanted something and God wanted another" refereeing to the above verse.
The prophet explained in a saying "Hadith" of his about the hitting part in the above verse : that isn't meant to be hitting that causes pain, it's rather hitting that expresses dislike, like hitting someone with a "soft branch" that equals a toothbrush in our nowadays. It's like me hitting you with a grape fruit berry, it isn't meant to hurt you but rather express my feeling of annoyance towards you. And that is only allowed at extreme measures.
Men in Islam are directed to protect and honor women and treat them as soft being which are gentler and less strong physically and emotionally. And they're to be punished by Allah if they ignore their duties or abuse them. You are always giving a choice to do right or wrong and God will reward you accordingly.
If someone abuses his role it's his bad ; it just doesn't mean that the religion he claims to follow allows him to.
People may lie and manipulate to get away with things, but a true believer would know that God cannot be manipulated and will punish him for his mis-conduct.
God Forgive us all, most merciful.
..when a man hit his wife, the wife went and complained to him ( as in; Prophet Muhammad) about her husband so the prophet ..
