A religion of…?
Now here’s something new, just when you think you’ve heard it all. Female protesters in Egypt were forced to submit to ‘virginity checks’ after being arrested. So how exactly do you conduct a virginity check?…(thinking)…Yep, that’s exactly how you do it….
Open wide and say ‘ahhh’
Women arrested by the Egyptian police during protests in Cairo’s Tahrir Square were subjected to forced ‘virginity tests’, according to Amnesty International. Eighteen demonstrators were detained after army officers cleared the square on March 9 at the end of weeks of protest. Amnesty today said that the women had been beaten, given electric shocks and then subjected to strip searches while being photographed by male soldiers. They were then given ‘virginity checks’ and threatened with prostitution charges if medics ruled they had had sex, according to the charity.
Salwa Hosseini, 20, said she had been arrested and taken to a military prison in Heikstep where she was forced to strip and then searched by a female guard. She told the charity a number of male soldiers were watching through two open doors and a window and it was at that point they took photographs. Miss Hosseini then went on to describe ‘virginity tests‘ being carried out by a man in a white coat. She claims the women were threatened with charges if they were found not to be virgins. Meanwhile Rasha Azeb, a female journalist who arrested in Tahrir Square at the same time, claims that she was handcuffed and beaten by security forces.” source – Daily Mail UK
