KUWAIT: A girl that was harassed by her stepfather did not know that her complaint to one of her maternal uncle would lead to a catastrophe for two reasons, one is that her mother married secretly without the knowledge of her uncles, and the second reason was the marriage was civil, which almost led to the death of her mother who was severely beaten by her brother before being taken to Zahra hospital.
The incident took place when the 15 year old girl went to her uncles and explained to them what happened in her mother’s home by the “stepfather”, and that he attempted to sexually attack her. This made one of the uncles very angry when he learned the marriage did not take the legal path, so he went to his sister’s home and beat her so hard and left her unconscious, according to the maid. He then took her sister to the family home before being transported to Zahra hospital. Police are investigating
