A 6-year old Afghan girl was raped in Takhar province

According to the report, she was not alone; two other small girls and a woman were also raped

Rape victim in Afghanistan

The hard political, military and social conditions that Afghanistan is facing today, has affected the whole society and children have turned to one of the biggest victims of this turmoil.

Last week, a roadside bomb killed at least ten children and before this Afghan children have been mistakenly targeted in NATO airstrikes.

But today a shocking report has come from Takhar, maybe more shocking than a suicide blast, roadside mine and bombardment.

The report says that a 6-year old girl was raped by some men. Her same is Samar Gul and she is a resident of a village in Takhar province.

According to the report, she was not alone; two other small girls and a woman were also raped.

While crying sourly she said after this act she was unconscious for a whole day. Samar Gul has no one else to take care of her but a blind father.

Some weeks back, a 17-year old girl named Shamenzar was raped. While crying, she shouted that the government officials, legal organizations and police supported the criminals.

A month and a half back, eight armed men in police cloths raped a 12-year old girl in the Qalbars village.
