Response to ‘VIDEO: Muslim Gang Rapes a Coptic Christian Girl in Broad Daylight While Chanting Allahu Akbar’ (اغتصاب مسيحيات في وضح النهار وسط صيحات التكبير)

It seems a video of an attempt to gang rape Coptic Christian girl/s by a mob of Egyptian Muslims is being banded around. I have not watched the video and have no intention of doing so. I did notice it on a fundamentalist Christian missionary blog (a blog that hates Islam) so I did a little digging.

I’ve read about it and from what I can gather it’s an old video (from 2009). The motive of these men has been said to have been to retaliate against an alleged rape of a Muslim woman by a Coptic Christian man – however maybe just pure sexual perversion took hold of them. According to the descriptions the men were chanting ‘Allahuakbar’ – this does not make sense as rape is not allowed in Islam (see fatwa below). There are no excuses nor are there any justifications for such assaults. Allah knows best what has happened.

Islamophobes Insensitively Using the Sexual Assault

At the end of the day our thoughts should be with the victims. Sadly some anti-Muslim folk are taking the assaults as a rod to tarnish all Muslims and Islam. Islam does not allow rape.

It’s really sad to see people using the sexual assault of others to further their agendas of demonizing Muslims and furthering the hatred against Muslims. It shows the shallow state of these people.

May Allah help the victims of rape around the world. Ameen.

Rape in Islam: Islam is Against Rape

The Arabic word ightisaab refers to taking something wrongfully by force. It is now used exclusively to refer to transgression against the honour of women by force (rape). 

This is an abhorrent crime that is forbidden in all religions and in the minds of all wise people and those who are possessed of sound human nature.”

Statistics regarding assault rapists:

The Oslo Police District has given a report of rapes in Oslo in 2010. The report shows that for all types of rape, except assault rape, European perpetrators are in the majority, and they are mostly Norwegian. Assault rapes covers only five identified unique person. These have all a foreign origin. The number is however, so low that it does not provide a basis for drawing conclusions with regard to country of origin. Two of them were very young (under 18) and two had severe psychiatric diagnoses and cannot be regarded as representative of their ethnic culture. It is highlighted in the report that generalizations like “Oslo’s rapists are foreigners”, which have been seen in media, are wrong. The report gives no statistics regarding religion of rapists.”

Yours Sincerely,

Where is the evidence that the raper was a Muslim? Let's not grant the Christian that assumption, since not everyone who claims to be a Muslim is a Muslim.

BTW, incidents of purported Christians raping and abusing innocent folks are documented here:
