Hundreds of Kidnapped Nigerian Schoolgirls Reportedly Sold as Brides to Militants for $12, Relatives Say

Not that anyone would have noticed but this news has been running in other news sources, just not the mainstream media.  Now the rampant and blatant kidnappings of young girls by Muslim militants have reached a crazy climax where Amnesty International had to step in and is finally receiving publicity of which the MSM cannot brush under the carpet.

Imagine, your daughter being kidnapped and no one does anything because they are Muslims and no one hears your cry.  Imagine the police saying, “she probably ran away”.  Imagine…

Unfortunately the reality is that instead of hundreds it is probably exceeding thousands.  In Pakistan, human rights organization Movement for Solidarity and Peace (MSP) reported that thousands of girls have been kidnapped.  These girls are between the ages of 12-25 and yes, they are subjected to sexual assault, rape, domestic abuse, forced prostitution and human trafficking.

From MSP:

“The true scale of the problem is likely to be much greater, as a number of cases are never reported or do not progress through the law-enforcement and legal systems.

The families’ pursuit of justice, redress and the recovery of their loved one are blocked at multiple levels: the police refuse to lodge a case; the courts accept unquestioningly statements attesting to conversion and marriage; and the families have to resort to pleading with the perpetrators and prominent individuals in order to get their relative back.”

Even my Muslim friends who are not extremists are surprised and shocked at the blasé of the MSM to ignore these facts.

What I’d like to ask is where are those feminists?  Where are the women who were tooting their horns about female power, equality and fairness for women throughout the world, the ones who rose up in the mid 1990’s screaming about female circumcision (which by the way still goes on) and making sure women have the freedom to receive education and a future?  What happened to women’s rights for the world?
