Gulnaz was tied up and raped by her cousin's husband -- leaving her traumatized and pregnant. Instead of being protected, she was thrown in jail for adultery. Now the only safe way out is to marry her rapist or face the death penalty or even honor killing by her own family. This is the treatment women receive under Sharia laws in Afghanistan.
Throughout the Middle East, Asia and Africa in countries where Sharia laws and Hadith are practiced, rape is considered the woman's fault and "shame" to the whole family family of the victims.
Under Sharia law rape or extramarital sex is considered zina which is punished by one hundred lashes and stoning to death.
In the Arab-Muslim world rape victims are often executed on charges of adultery or even murdered by their families in so called "honor killings".
