Afghanistan- Afgan mullah child rape case is "beyond heartbreaking"

For immediate release: Sunday, July 20, 2014

Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 503 0003, SNAPdorris@gmail.com)

Could there possibly be a more hideous case than this one? The family of a ten year old, forty pound rape victim wants to kill her. Why? Because she was brutally attacked by an Afghan mullah in a mosque, allegedly bringing her relatives "shame."

And speaking of shame - real shame - the mullah, Mohammad Amin, absurdly claims it was "consensual sex."
