Response To Tasek Gelugor MP, Datuk Shabudin Yahaya On Rape Survivors Marrying Their Rapist (5 April 2017)Sisters in Islam is very concerned by the statement made by Tasek Gelugor MP, Datuk Shabudin Yahaya, that a rape survivor will have a better and secure future by marrying their rapist. It is a shocking and deplorable suggestion that undermines the severity and emotional trauma experienced by a rape survivor.
In his statement, he had said that there was “nothing wrong” with a rape victim marrying the rapist and suggested it as a “remedy” to reduce social problems. Morally repugnant, such a statement also reflects how oblivious the MP is of the fact that rape is a crime punishable under Federal Law.
