Collection of Videos and Articles about Rape and Islamic Sharia

The above two videos are by Hazrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad, the previous international leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community

In the following interview, one of the most learned scholars and proponent of Sharia says that if a woman is raped and does not have four male witnesses, regardless of other circumstances, she should better be quiet.
