Could you imagine that a mother herself kill her baby?
But unfortunately, it is still happening in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
Because the draconian punishments of Islam in the name of ZINA (fornication) compel the mothers to take this extreme step to save themselves and to save the honour of their families.
Here is the news from DAWN newspaper (the most-read English Newspaper in Pakistan), telling that alone in Karachi 375 dead bodies of newborn babies have been found in the garbage, alone in the year 2019.
Compared to Islamic Pakistan, newborn babies are not killed in Western countries, as there are no draconian punishments present in the name of fornication and modesty. All children are considered legitimate and none of them is considered as Bastard. Mothers are fully allowed to stay with their babies and the whole society and the laws support such a family. And even if some teen mothers decide to give their babies free for adoption, it is still not a problem.
Moreover, look at this Islamic Ruling:
Malik said, "The position with us about a woman who is found to be pregnant and has no husband and she says, 'I was forced,' or she says, 'I was married,' is that it is not accepted from her and the hadd is inflicted on her unless she has a clear proof of what she claims about the marriage or that she was forced or she comes bleeding if she was a virgin or she calls out for help so that someone comes to her and she is in that state or what resembles it of the situation in which the violation occurred." He said, "If she does not produce any of those, the hadd is inflicted on her and what she claims of that is not accepted from her."
And the largest Fatwa Website (run by Saudi Salafi Muftis) Islam Q&A writes in its fatwa (link):
Rape is essentially zina (fornication or adultery) and is proven in the same way as zina is proven, which is with four witnesses. The punishment is one hundred lashes if the man was a virgin and stoning if he was previously married ... Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr (may Allah have mercy on him) said: She is not to be punished if it is proven that he forced her and overpowered her. That may be known from her having screamed and shouted for help. (Al-Istidhkaar, 7/146 ) ...
It is very difficult for a raped woman (or a small child girl) to bring proof of her rape. There are no people present where she is raped who can hear her calls for help, and blood also does not always come. The biggest problem is, perhaps 100% of women don't even know about these Islamic Rulings about rape that they have to immediately present their blood in public. Their first reaction is to hide their face along with their rape. Their own families could kill them in the name of Ghairah.
Do you think that small child girls could act upon these Islamic rulings if they are being raped by their own fathers, brothers, uncles or the Mullah in the Quran schools?
2.25 million illegal Abortion cases in Pakistani Hospitals
Also connected to the above problem is the issue of 2.25 million illegal Abortion cases in Pakistani Hospitals (link).
These stats tell us a lot of stories.
You could not suppress human nature by draconian laws. Sex is human nature while Islam is not a religion of nature.
It also tells us that many of these women would have chosen to keep their babies in the absence of bloodthirsty Islamic laws.
The killing of 2000 girls in the name of Ghairah (Honor Killings)
Also, 2000 girls have been killed in the last 3 years in the name of honour killings (i.e. in doubt of having relationships with boys) (link). These numbers are about the registered cases. No one knows how many girls have been killed actually.
Also, boys are also been killed in these honour killings (who have relationships with the girls), and their numbers are separate.
And no one knows how many hundreds of thousands of girls have to undergo the worst type of torture in the name of Honor since the cases in these torture cases are not registered while mostly the families of girls are involved in it.
