Why does this keep happening? Yes, sexual molestation happens all over. But we see Muslim migrants involved in this kind of story is seen on a not infrequent basis. Why? One reason may be because such treatment of infidel women is sanctioned in the Qur’an.
In France, a Muslim quoted Qur’an while raping his victim. A survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK has said that her rapists would quote the Qur’an to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam. Thus it came as no surprise when Muslim migrants in France raped a girl and videoed the rape while praising Allah and invoking the Qur’an. In India, a Muslim gave a Qur’an and a prayer rug to the woman he was holding captive and repeatedly raping. And the victim of an Islamic State jihadi rapist recalled: “He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God…He said that raping me is his prayer to God.” In India, a Muslim kidnapped and raped a 14-year-old Hindu girl, and forced her to read the Qur’an and Islamic prayers. In Pakistan, another Christian woman recounted that her rapist was also religious: “He threw me on the bed and started to rape me. He demanded I marry him and convert to Islam. I refused. I am not willing to deny Jesus and he said that if I would not agree he would kill me.” Rapists demanded that another girl’s family turn her over to them, claiming that she had recited the Islamic profession of faith during the rape and thus could not live among infidels.
The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.
“Saint Etienne. A woman raped on her way home: a suspect arrested,” translated from “Saint-Étienne. Une femme violée en rentrant chez elle : un suspect arrêté,” by Mathias Souteyrat, Actu, February 27, 2023 (thanks to L.):
On Sunday, February 12, 2023, around midnight, a 40-year-old woman was the victim of a rape.
She was attacked during the journey between her work and her home in the lower part of the Crêt-de-Roc district of Saint-Etienne, said David Charmatz, public prosecutor of Saint-Etienne.
Violently assaulted, with injuries that led to bleeding, the victim lost consciousness. However, she was able to find help from a neighbor after her attacker left.
An attacker on an electric scooter
Hospitalized and then heard by the police, she only kept a few vague memories of her attack. She told investigators that her attacker followed her on an electric scooter.
Genetic samples were taken to look for traces possibly left by the rapist. But the male genetic profile brought to light by the laboratory is unknown and is not listed in the national DNA file.
The man spotted thanks to CCTV footage
The investigation, entrusted to the departmental security, was then extended by the Saint-Etienne prosecutor’s office, which opened a judicial investigation into the rape charge on February 21, specifies the prosecutor.
The police spotted, thanks to video surveillance recordings, an individual who could match the profile of the attacker, living not far from the facts, in the city center of Saint-Etienne.
The suspect was arrested on February 23.
A search of his home allowed the technical and scientific police to find clothes belonging to him as well as a scooter with traces of the victim’s blood.
A 21-year-old Tunisian
The suspect, a 21-year-old foreigner of Tunisian nationality, is not known to the judicial services. He has been living in France for almost 2 months, welcomed by his 3 brothers.
After extending his custody, the investigating judge referred this individual. The man was indicted and placed, on the compliant requisitions of the prosecution, in criminal pre-trial detention by the judge of freedoms, Saturday, February 25.
Incarcerated at La Talaudière
The man suspected of the rape provided several outlandish explanations while in police custody, first denying the facts before explaining that it was a conspiracy.
He then exercised his right to remain silent before the investigating judge and then declared that he no longer remembered the facts to the judge of freedoms and detention. He was imprisoned in La Talaudière prison, awaiting trial.
