Not being a pedophile myself, I have great difficulty comprehending why anyone finds children’s totally sexless bodies arousing. But for some, especially males who will go out of their way to even MARRY under-aged children, the younger the better. Perhaps it is the very innocence they are about to defile that gets them going. Maybe its the fantasy of absolute power they would wield over such children. Who knows what goes through the mind of a pedophile? These children, especially the girls are exposed to these horrors especially within cultures that encourage the practice under a host of guises.
The story you will read below is gut wrenching and a depiction of unbelievable cruelty.

The 8-year-old girl whose story you’ll read in coming lines did not make it to the 2nd night of her wedding nor did she make it to her 9th or 10th birthday.
Her name unknown, my source telephoned me last week at 9:30 pm to tell me her story. At first I thought it’s just going to be a short conversation but later it was unveiled that the story is different.
A medical doctor assigned in the main hospital in Zaranj city, the capital of the province, who wished to remain unnamed confirmed that he was “made aware” of the incident and that it was “too late to do anything for her” as well the “remote area didn’t allow them to do anything”.
The girl was one of the several daughters of a man in his late 30s. For an unknown reason he gave his daughter to the Mullah of their village for a big amount of money. It is also common in Afghanistan’s rural areas or 3rd level provinces/cities to marry young girls to old men, and trading their daughters for their debts or other items.
The mullah is in his late 50s and is the mosque guy of the village where this incident happened.
The mullah is already married and has many children too.
The two families hold a tribal meeting, agree on the price that the groom’s family pay to the bride’s family, and they set a date for wedding.
In rural areas like this here there are no engagements or any ceremonies beforehand like there are some in the metropolitan and urban areas.
The two families planned a wedding party, the wedding and Nekah (The religious process in which a woman is officially married to a man) took place and the 8-years-old bride became the 50-years-old Mullah’s 2nd wife.
The celebration party over, it was time to have sex (not make love) with the 8-year-old bride.
The girl was just 8 years old and everybody understands the fact that she knows nothing about sex or wedding or making love or virginity or sexual related topics; not even at a basic level for two reasons, one being that she’s just a child – not even a teenager and that in that part of the country, nobody knows anything about these things nor are they given trainings or education about a healthy sexual life.
The mullah takes off the bride’s clothes as well as his owns and eagerly approaches her for sex.
The Mullah who is heavily endowed tried desperately to penetrate the child with no success.
After several attempts, the Mullah was frustrated.
He failed because the 8-years-old girl was physically quiet thin and had a very immature body.
This 50 year old man, himself a father to many children, then used a sharp knife to TEAR THE CHILD’S VAGINA from the clitoris upward and downwards towards her anus in order to make her big enough to accommodate him.
Gravely injured and in agonizing pain, the child started bleeding heavily, but the mullah was filled with too much rage at his pent up lust to feel any empathy.
The mullah stuffed a scarf into her mouth to muffle her crying in order not to raise alarm because there were others in the room adjacent.
It was in this state that this 50 year old man forced his penis into the girl’s severely bleeding vagina and had sexual intercourse with her on a blood-covered bed, and then got up and cleaned himself with a cloth.
The girl was left bleeding with nobody to help her. The Mullah could not ask for help either as it would draw attention to the inhuman thing he had just done to the girl and the girl’s family (who were sitting over a cup of tea in the other room) would kill him.
The child-bride bled heavily and went into shock before dying in the early hours of the morning.
According to the Mullah, she was pale and her eyes were open when she died. The bed, as he described, was all red with her blood and she was lying in her blood only. No cloth beneath her was recognizable and everything was in dried blood because a whole night had passed on the blood.
She was pale because she had lost all her body’s blood. Her eyes were open as she was shivering when she died and her hands were tied in a praying position, saying her death time prayer.
The Mullah called in a family friend to help clean up the mess and prepare a reason for her death. Because the man was a close friend or family of the mullah, he did what he could, removing every piece of cloth that was bloody.
They wrapped her in a piece of white cloth and informed the others that she had passed away.
That morning her family mourned her death without seeking any explanation for her death, and then took her to wash her body as required before burial.
Due to the Mullah’s great influence in the village, none of the women who washed the girl’s body dared to ask or seek the reason for the wounds around her vagina.
The close friend of the Mullah, who knew everything, was very upset and shared the story with my source who then called me and told me the story.
Another doctor that I asked in Zaranj said that he wasn’t aware of the case, but he remembers that he used to treat the now-dead bride when she was 4 or 5 years old.
This doctor also asked me to not name him anywhere but only said that he was “deeply saddened that incidents like that still happen in Afghanistan”.
He called it one of the reasons of Afghanistan is not going forward: People’s idiocy and uncivilized behaviors and traditions.
This story reached me was told the exact way it happened by a very close friend of the Mullah after the girl’s dead body was buried. According to the Mullah, he had a “bad conscience” about it.
