Chaima Sadou, 19 years old, was raped, stabbed, and burned alive. She was found burned in an abandoned petrol station at the entrance to Thenia city in Boumerdes, Algeria.

According to the mother of the victim, the perpetrator would be a convict, who had already tried to rape his daughter in 2016. In tears, Chaima’s mother says her daughter had gone out to pay a phone bill.

The murderer, identified as Rayan, was a young offender already known by the authorities.

We reproduce here the call for mobilization to defend her memory.

Call To Mobilization

Justice For Chaima

My name is Chaima, I’m 19. I was kidnapped, tortured, raped, slaughtered and burned by my executioner.

My charred body was found at an abandoned gas station in Ténia, Boumerdes. My body was so burnt, it was hard to identify me.

Today I’m no longer here to defend myself but I call on you to defend my memory and do me justice.

I was raped by the same monster 4 years ago in 2016 when I was only 15.

I was harassed by his mother for filing a complaint and he ended up raping me again and burning me for breaking the fake taboos and breaking the silence.

I was burned because I reported my rapist and today, on social media, my outfit is being reported!

Today I am no longer here he raped me and burned me for revenge.

He took my life, he deprived me of my youth and instead of claiming justice, my clothes are accused.

My name is Chaima, I was only 19 and I was doubly murdered.

Murdered by my executioner and by the justice of my country that could not protect me.

My only sin is being a woman in a country where rape, sexual harassment and femicide are trivialized.

From where I am, I call on my sisters to mobilize! To give myself a voice, me who has been condemned to eternal silence.

Algerian women, get out! Walk Shout out! Ask for justice! Innounce social media that the world can know that in my country, women are raped, killed, burned and worse, condemned for their outfits!

Walk for my memory! Today is me and tomorrow may be one of you!

Judged For Not Wearing The Hijab

Raped, multiply stabbed, burnt ALIVE. And still be judged & blamed by her own countrymen for not wearing the Hijab. As if that was the reason for the tragedy – And not perverse and inhuman moral values.

In its traditional form, it is worn by women to maintain modesty and privacy from unrelated males. According to the Encyclopedia of Islam and Muslim World, modesty in the Quran concerns both men’s and women’s “gaze, gait, garments, and genitalia.

To the memory of Chaima Sadou
