Atrocities on Women and Children

Atrocities on Women and Children

Terrorismwhatever may be its garb, ultimately knows no faith nor religion and is undiscerning, particularly when it is used as a means to attain the ends of an external force.

The terrorists have perpetrated atrocities on women and children indiscriminately and wantonly. As the details illustrated in these pages will show the majority of the women who have been abducted, tortured, raped or killed are Muslims.

Every such act has its own tale of brutality, crudity and sheer horror. The pattern, however, is consistent ..... kidnap a woman, and kill her after outraging her modesty. Or, rape and kill her in her own house in the presence of her family members, and then kill them all. Or, just kill indiscriminately.

Often, the excuse for such acts is suspicion about 'loyalty to the cause' on the part of the victim or the family, or to strike terror. Frequently, it is an expression of the psyche of those who have crossed the threshold of the law and all norms of civilized behavior.
