Hidden Shame

“Hij was toch al zo’n soort jongen”

Als maatschappij, zijn we betreurenswaardig
efficiënt in het rechtvaardigen van
seksueel geweld. Het was of de kleding,
of de manier van lopen, of de houding,
of de glimlach, of iets aan het
slachtoffer dat het moeilijk maakte voor de
aanvaller om de overduidelijke
afwezigheid van toestemming in de situatie.

He was that kind of boy anyway

“The first time I sold my body was when I was eight years old,” says Naeem a-matter-of factly. Naeem is now thirteen, a runaway kid and a veteran of the streets of Peshawar, one of Pakistan’s most dangerous cities. He has been a child prostitute since he was eight and a drug addict since he was nine. The first time he sold his body, his junkie elder brother kicked him out of the house and told him not to return without earning some money. “My brother said by any means necessary,” Naeem continues. “I hadn’t been home in three days, so then I did it with a man in the park.”

In towns and cities across Pakistan, tens of thousands of vulnerable young boys have become the victims of paedophile predators who seem to have nothing to fear from the law. It’s an open secret that few acknowledge publicly and even fewer want to do anything about.
 
In a society where women are hidden from view and young girls deemed untouchable, the bus stations, truck stops and alleyways have become the hunting ground for perverted men to prey on the innocent. In one survey alone, 95% of truck drivers admitted having sex with boys was their favourite entertainment. At the main bus terminal in Peshawar, a makeshift hostel for drivers passing through is set up every evening with around twenty beds lying side by side. Some are occupied by men, some by boys, and some by both. Most boys have been procured by hostel owners like Hassan Deen: “When a kid is wandering the streets alone, we lure him in by telling him we’ll give him some food and a place to stay. Then we pass them on to the drivers.” In return for a pittance, the men can have sex with as many boys as they desire. 
 
Pedestrians stroll by as though nothing is amiss and police say they’re too busy fighting terrorists to have time for the children. Forever damaged and with no hope, many of the boys turn to drugs to numb the pain and sorrow. 
 
One of the boys we feature is 13-year-old Naeem. Having been gang-raped by four men when he was just 10, Naeem is now a child prostitute and abuser of younger boys himself. As he says: “Sometimes I wish I’d never been born.”

Blank Dice
Too many people dodging responsibilities by just saying “Pray/I will pray/may god ….”. Praying does nothing. People’s will will. As long as you’re relying on prayers the world will always be the mess it is now.

Almighty God says it “would be better to have a millstone tied around your neck and tossed in the sea than to harm a child.” People better wake up as Christ Jesus is coming back soon. God will avenge the abuse of these precious kids.
nowhere somewhere

Who is it thats abuseing these children seen as pakistan is muslim country !?
Kevin Cabrera
This needs more attention. If anyone sees my comment like, comment, and share. This truly hurts my soul
Yuri R.
These abused children don’t need muslim charity. It is islam that causes these problems: separation of men and women, the way women are treated, the way gay men are treated, all this contributes to child abuse in islamic countries.
