    Posted: 03 October 2012 at 12:35am
In western news media there has been a lot of reporting lately about the horrific sexual abuse of children, sometimes by priests and sometimes by close family members
- people who would be considered mahram.

Is this strictly a problem affecting kaffir only, and if so then why?

I hope that the lack of discussion on this topic is simply a result of it being overlooked.

If the standard that used today to categorized child abuse used in the muslim world than yes there are, plenty enough, mostly from the family members. But than again I saw first hand where the opposite also happened, the children abused their helpless parent. It is all back because illiteracy.

But in my opinion, looking from the size of population the muslim world fare much better.

Here's a recent news item from my part of the world.

Detective challenges NSW State Premier over Catholic abuse claims

"There have been about 400 victims of child sexual abuse in the Newcastle area and 11 priests have been convicted since 1995.

[Detective Chief Inspector] Fox detailed a number of horrific cases ... and alleged a bishop had lied to him about his knowledge of abuse."


Sadly, there have been so many similar scandals worldwide that this one has scarcely been reported outside Australia.

It's now starting to get a bit of attention elsewhere...

"SYDNEY: Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced a national inquiry into institutional responses to child sex abuse on Monday after a series of scandals involving paedophile priests. "

Child sexual abuse is disturbingly common in homes, schools, and residential care facilities in India. A government-appointed committee set up after the New Delhi attack to recommend legal and policy reform has found that child protection schemes “have clearly failed to achieve their avowed objective.”
India: Child Sex Abuse Shielded by Silence and Neglect,  Human Rights Watch press release, 07 Feb 2013

"The 82-page report - Breaking the Silence: Child Sexual Abuse in India - was released in the Indian capital, Delhi, on Thursday morning." - BBC

 

God has the right to remain silent. For His advocates, however, each resigned shrug is a missed opportunity to win new converts.

All of this only serves to underline, for me, how much we are all the same, faced in each of our societies, with the same ails and troubles of life in a sinful world.
Let us seek Truth together
Blessed be God forever
