Rape is a serious offense that is not only a sin but also crime and vice which is not allowed in any society. It destroys not just women physically yet mentally, psychologically and also emotionally. They smash her body and mind with their lust and brutality.
Most of the Muslim girls commit suicide because Muslim societies do not accept her. The honor of the family has gone due they are from the victim’s family.

Another important reason is that there is no use of science and technology in rape cases such as a piece of evidence such as DNA test videos and images. They only want four male witness or eight female witnesses, who saw rape with their own eyes.
Some example of the raped cases
September 2014, Farooq’s parliamentarian three sons accused of abducting and raping a girl from Faisalabad, they were arrested for a young girl rape. Later the courts released them due to the lack of evidence in the form of witnesses.
Further July 2017, a panchayat (local court) in Multan ordered a 16-year-old girl’s rape in order to punish her due to her brother’s behavior who eloped with a girl of high class.
In Saudi Arab, there is a law a girl who has raped will be punished because she is responsible for her rape.
Once, in this case, the court gave a girl punishment of 100 lashes for being gang-raped and has no witnesses but the girl
The opinion of Islamic clergymen for rape
The Islamic clergymen say that a female is responsible for her rape, she seduces males due to her presence.
Islamic countries are the only one who gives punishment to victims of rape. The victims become the victimizer and real culprit declares innocent.
In Pakistan, the popular clergyman said that if a girl has no witnesses for rape then she should be silent because it defames Islam.
In Iran 2014, a woman killed her rapist then the court said she has no right to murder someone, if he is raped her then is acceptable but she can’t kill her rapist. The court sentences her death due to the murder of her rapist.
However, it is a highly barbaric act that can’t be neglected. She is also a human being treat her like a person, not a property or non-living thing. Further, Islamic countries must amend the rape law and secure women from the brutality and barbarism of males. Nowadays men and women are doing the same thing and continue their lives. Pakistan has a 93% ratio of rape and India has 95% but still, the Muslims are saying we respect women and gives the honor. Above all, in Islamic countries, for controlling this problem in their countries they must punish to a rapist.
