"I don't know if a cat ate his ears, but his nose went down the drain

Afghan police have arrested the parents of a 14-year-old girl after they attacked a religious cleric and cut off his nose and ears in retaliation for what they say were a series of sexual attacks on their daughter.

Right activists say there has been a sharp rise in violent attacks against women in the deeply conservative Muslim country, where women have fought hard to gain rights after the collapse of Taliban government in 2001.

Restoring women's rights after the Taliban was ousted by a U.S.-led coalition of troops was cited as one of the main objectives of the war.

The provincial head of women's affairs, Khadija Yaqeen, told Reuters that the girl had told her parents four months ago she had been assaulted.

The father invited the mullah to his house on Monday for dinner, police said.

"I cut off his ears and nose," her father Abdul Qahar, dressed in a traditional shalwar kameez and a turban, said from the police chief's office in the northern Baghlan province.

"I don't know if a cat ate his ears, but his nose went down the drain," he told Reuters, speaking in the Dari language

Police arrested the girl's parents on Tuesday. Ahmad Jawid Basharat, a police spokesman in Baghlan, said Qahar had tied the cleric's hands and feet and cut off his nose and an ear as an act of revenge.

The 32-year-old cleric denied he had assaulted the girl. Police said they have opened a case against him.

Religious, or sharia, law often holds sway over constitutional law in some parts of rural Afghanistan.

"If there was a functioning rule of law, then he would be punished even more severely," said the girl's mother, Sultana, wearing a traditional all-covering burqa.

There is growing fear among many people in Afghanistan that the withdrawal of NATO-led forces and efforts to reach a political agreement with the Taliban to end the 12-year-old war could undermine hard-won freedoms for women.

The hardline Islamist government banned girls from attending school when it ruled the country from 1996 to 2001, and during the insurgency its militants have regularly bombed girls' schools built with U.S. money.

Think positive: No more runny nose or earache.


A pretty apt punishment for assaulting a woman. Imagine the dork going to the house, being so above it he didn't think anything untoward would happen to him. heh heh heh. Way ta go Abdul.

In an ironic bit of balance, the bombs are probably built with U.S. money too.

The fact that her father did this to revenge his daughter instead of killing her for being assaulted is excellent evidence that in spite of pressure from the Taliban there are likely many men who would not succumb to their mind bending attempts to distort women.

Is it a genetic flaw in the Taliban that they all have such small peni s? Or is it small brains? Cause I can't figure out what threat women are too them that they have such a distorted view of us.

I remember back when it first began to emerge ten or so years ago in press releases (probably sooner for many people...I didn't know about it...never thought about it back then even though I knew about their cultural misogyny for probably 15 years due to a friend who refused to wear a hijab) how women in these countries had been stripped of their doctorates even though male doctors weren't to look at women's body parts and women were suffering medically, and teachers could no longer teach, girls could no longer go to school, just horrid situations and the world really didn't know and really didn't care. Some articles I read at the time spoke of the Taliban as being very young, uneducated, mailable...like most bullies... they come from a bad place and have been given power...most times it ends badly.
