Last Monday, the 5-year-old girl went missing from her home in East Delhi after going out to play. She was discovered Wednesday night when neighbors detected muffled cries in a small locked room in the same building where the girl lived. The child's family found her, bleeding and brutalized.
Doctors expressed shock at what had been done to the child. The medical team found a glass bottle and pieces of a candle forced into her private parts. "This is the first time I have seen such barbarism," R.K. Bansal, the medical superintendent of Swami Dayanand Hospital, said in a televised interview.
"There were injuries on her lips, cheeks, arms and anus area; her neck had bruise marks suggesting that attempts were made to strangle her," Bansal added.
Rising public pressure prompted authorities to move the injured girl to one of New Delhi's premier public hospitals. At the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, where girl was shifted, doctors said her vital signs are normal and that she is out of dange
A 24-year-old man who lived in the room where the girl was found was arrested Saturday in Muzaffarpur town in Bihar state, about 620 miles east of New Delhi, Mishra said. The suspect was flown to New Delhi, where a magistrate ordered that he be held in police custody. Read more: www.foxnews.com...

This was a message to all the victims of rape in their country. It's their way of saying 'don't ask don't tell' and if you do you'll die. That's the message I'm getting from this.
These Imams aren't condemning rapist, they are warning future victims to not speak up.
Understand what exactly ?
My current understanding of why such a hard line is taken to matters involving infidelity is to help protect the family unit and discourage family breakdown.

How does any form of punishment achieve its aims? By setting an example that the rest of the community does not want to follow through fear and intimidation.
What is quite clear is the method of punishment is disturbing. How the victim of an assault was treated is also very problematic. Considering how the death certificate was not properly completed does mean that there is a lot of uncomfortable political pressure going on around these events.
I did find it interesting to learn that Sharia law was banned in Bangladesh 10 years ago, but still being practiced in the more remote parts of the country. It does suggest that there is a big lack of judicial infrastructure throughout the nation with some longer term cultural conflicts still going on.
Legally, there could be quite an interesting case if Dhaka has the political will to trial the men involved with these events. Having access to better legal means and processes would very much help the more remote communities with resolving their conflicts in a more appropriate way.

ha well sorry to sound callous.
but it's like being annoyed because it's raining. its gonna rain anyway.
we all know a strongly worded letter/email will be thrown in the bin before its ever read.
if that eases your conscience-ok, but you new it was futile.
swearing in a gossip section on a internet forum is not how you get things done.
I'm a Muslim, and I'm pissed as well. What kind of a sick and insane person would do this. Once again some uneducated fools have feeded the Islamophobist trolls. Thanks!!!!!!
