“He was featured in a local tenant magazine in 2016 and spoke of how he was responsible for teaching other Afghans about how it works in Sweden, what rules apply and “how to behave” towards women. He explained that for many it came as a shock to come to Sweden and realize that women have rights.”
But his expertise about how to behave toward Swedish women failed him when it counted. What won out were more deeply ingrained imperatives. A survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK has said that her rapists would quote Quran to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam. Thus it came as no surprise when Muslim migrants in France raped a girl and videoed the rape while praising Allah and invoking the Qur’an. In India, a Muslim gave a Qur’an and a prayer rug to the woman he was holding captive and repeatedly raping. And the victim of an Islamic State jihadi rapist recalled: “He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God…He said that raping me is his prayer to God.” In India, a Muslim kidnapped and raped a 14-year-old Hindu girl, and forced her to read the Qur’an and Islamic prayers.
The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.
“He taught other Afghans ‘how to behave’ toward women – then he himself raped a colleague on the night shift,” translated from “Undervisade andra afghaner i ‘hur man beter sig’ mot kvinnor – sen våldtog han själv kollega på nattpasset,” Fria Tider, February 16, 2021:
DOMESTIC. A 24-year-old Afghan man was sentenced today by the Court of Appeal for having raped a colleague in the home care service during a night shift. The man previously worked at an HVB home, where he was responsible for teaching other so-called refugee children Swedish rules and how to behave towards women.
The 24-year-old called the criminal charges “pure conspiracies” – until he learned of “certain forensic findings.” Then he claimed instead to have masturbated and had consensual intercourse with the woman in the office.
He also told of a dream he had that “a mouse or rat has entered my clothes and nibbles on my penis.”
However, the district court did not believe that explanation and sentenced the Afghan to two years in prison. And now the Court of Appeal has upheld the verdict.
The Afghan, who himself came to Sweden as an “unaccompanied refugee child,” previously worked at an HVB residence in Timrå. He was featured in a local tenant magazine in 2016 and spoke of how he was responsible for teaching other Afghans about how it works in Sweden, what rules apply and “how to behave” towards women. He explained that for many it came as a shock to come to Sweden and realize that women have rights.
On 11 August 2020, a rape was committed in the home care service’s premises on Gröndalsvägen in Tumba. During a night shift, a woman was raped orally, vaginally and anally by a male colleague. It all took place in an office, which was used by the staff for coffee and rest.
During a break at work, the woman fell asleep on a sofa in the office. She woke up to the man lying between her and the back of the sofa.
“She explained at once that she was not going to have sex with him, but he hugged her harder and harder. He said, ‘Don’t say that.’ “He put his body weight on her. She was lying on her back. In vain she tried several times to push him away with all her might. She finally gave up,” it is stated in the records of the verdict.
The woman was new to the job and at first did not dare to tell anyone what had happened. It therefore took three weeks before she made a report. It was only after entrusting herself to a coworker, who had reacted to the changing mood between the man and the woman in the workplace, that she informed her boss.
The police report was made on September 4, and on September 8, the 24-year-old was arrested.
The police secured DNA evidence
At first, the man denied the crime and claimed that no sexual intercourse had taken place. He called the charges against him “pure conspiracies” – until he realized that the police had secured DNA evidence.
Then he began to change his story. In an attempt to explain why his semen could be on the spot, he claimed that the woman had undressed naked, asked for a massage and made approaches.
– She touched me all over my body and you can investigate that she touched me all over my body. She touched me in intimate parts, he stated.
He said he found the woman’s behavior “unacceptable,” but still was “sucked in, inflamed and hot” by her alleged approaches – then he claims to have fallen asleep in the middle of it all and woke up with his underwear and work pants pulled down to his thighs. He believed that the woman could have “done something” while he slept.
He also said he masturbated in the office a few nights before the rape.
“A rat eats on my penis”
During an interrogation, the Afghan suddenly wanted to tell a story.
– What happens when I sleep, I sleep deeply and dream that a mouse or rat has entered my clothes and nibbles on my penis. And then I wake up and scream and take off all my clothes.
However, he could not answer whether he had this dream during the night in question.
After being prosecuted, he wanted a supplementary hearing to be held. He then gave a new version of the course of events and claimed that he and the plaintiffs had engaged twice in voluntary intercourse, both initiated by the woman. That he had not revealed this before was due to the fact “that he was shocked and scared and already had a bad experience with the police. He was also afraid of the plaintiff’s boyfriend, who threatened to kill him. He also has a wife and a newborn child; the situation was sensitive.”
Receives a minimum penalty and avoids expulsion
The district court found that the woman’s story gained “considerable support from another investigation” and convicted the 24-year-old of rape. The sentence was two years imprisonment, but the sentence could have been longer.
The fact that the woman was exposed to the crime at her workplace can be seen as an aggravating circumstance, and the district court held that a longer prison sentence was justified. Two judges also wanted to see the sentence extended by six months, but since the prosecutor did not demand a longer sentence, the sentence was two years, which is the minimum for rape.
The man must also pay damages of SEK 115,000 to the woman.
No request for deportation was made, which means that the Afghan may remain in Sweden after serving his sentence.
The Court of Appeal determines
After the verdict, the man wanted to replace his public defender with the left-wing lawyer Viktor Banke. However, the district court found no factual basis for this request, which was thus denied.
The 24-year-old appealed the verdict and today the Court of Appeal announced that the district court’s verdict was upheld.
Unaccompanied refugee children
The convict is a citizen of Afghanistan. He came to Sweden as an “unaccompanied child” and was registered in 2011 in Timrå.
