MULTAN, Pakistan (AP) - A Pakistan village council has punished a 20-year-old man for adultery by ordering the betrothal of his two-year-old niece to the husband of the woman with whom he had the alleged affair, police said on Monday.

Tribal elders meeting last week also ordered Mohammed Akmal to pay a 230,000-rupee ($4,782 Cdn) fine to the woman's husband, who has since divorced his wife.

Police said that the council in Kacha Chohan village, about 350 kilometres west of Punjab province's major city of Multan, decreed that the two-year-old girl would be married to Mohammed Altaf when she turns 18.

Rashid Rahman, a lawyer and Multan-based co-ordinator with the independent Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, condemned the village council's decision.

"These types of panchayats are illegal and nobody has the right to take a decision about a child's life," he said. "This country has its legal system and all decisions should be taken under it."

Wow, just wow, what can you say about idiocy like this? It beggars belief
And it gets better

In 2002, another village council near Multan ordered a woman to be gang-raped as punishment for her brother's sexual relations with another woman.

A court later convicted six men who perpetrated the rape and sentenced them to death. They are appealing their sentences.

I'm absolutely speechless. How anyone can be considered a 'wise elder', in any society, when they hand out sentences like this is mind boggling

Sorry man, this is a repeat. You should try the Search Engine on the site before posting something you think someone beat you to.

Check out the ATSNN Thread above, it's the same thing you are talking about.

No need to apologize...the search is a good tool to make sure your posts are not repititious and origional...

hearing about the gang-rape thing is really sick though...the other article didn't have anything about that...there are many, many atrocities out there in the world

Actually, there can be parallel posts on both ATS and ATSNN as they are while linked seperate entities. So this thread is fine.

Edit: However, it is always good practice to do a search before posting to make sure its not alread an active thread here on ATS.

i as a european citizen(not the 51st state) do not understand why there is so much hate and negative press against the usa in europe while little cases like this ore the beheadings are mostly ignored!?
