:: "تجاوز در بستر زناشویی" و سکوت قانون
۲۵ نوامبر روز بین المللی مبارزه با خشونت علیه زنان است. لیلا علی کرمی، وکیل دادگستری به مناسبت این روز مقاله ای برای صفحه ناظران درباره روابط جنسی در بستر زناشویی نوشته است. خشونت علیه زنان، علی رغم بسیاری از موضوعات دیگر که تعلق به یک جغرافیای خاص دارد، مرز و محدوده ای نداشته و یک پدیده جهانی است. پدیده ای است که در اشکال مختلف جسمی، روحی، روانی و اقصادی رخ می نماید و حوزه خصوصی و عمومی زندگی زنان از هر قشر و طبقه که باشند را در بر می گیرد. «تجاوز در بستر زناشویی» یکی از انواع خشونت علیه زنان است که علاوه بر جسم، روح و روانِ زن را نیز نشانه گرفته و صدمات جبران ناپذیری به بار می آورد که سلامت زنان و به تبع آن سلامت خانواده و جامعه را هم به خطر می اندازد. علی رغم هشدارهای سازمان ملل و جامعه بین المللی به لزوم توجه دولت ها به این مساله هنوز در بسیاری از کشورها از جمله ایران قانون خاصی برای ممنوعیت تجاوز در بستر زناشویی وجود ندارد. در قانون مجازات اسلامی سخنی از تجاوز شوهر به همسر نیست و بالتبع مجازاتی هم برای چنین عملی در نظر گرفته نشده است. به طور کلی قانون کیفری ایران در این مورد ساکت است. اما قانون مدنی راهی دیگر در پیش گرفته و تمکین را از وظایف زن دانسته است. تمکین در معنای خاص آن انجام وظایف زناشویی از طرف زن است. یعنی هر وقت شوهر اراده کرد، زن بایستی نیازهای جنسی وی را، حتی بر خلاف میل باطنی خودش، برآورده کند. دردناکتر آنکه در قشرهای سنتی جامعه بسیاری از زنان، خود نیز از پدیده تجاوز زناشویی نا آگاهند، از اینرو علی رغم درد و رنج جسمی و روحی، خود را به دست شوهر می سپارند و ظاهرا نیز مشکلی پیش نمی آید. چرا که اصولا فرد ناراضی در این رابطه یعنی زن، حقی برای خود در ابراز ناراحتی اش نمی بیند. اما مشکل جایی بروز می کند که زن متوجه می شود لزومی به تن دادن به خواسته های جنسی شوهرش ندارد. در چنین مواقعی مشکلات روحی منجر به مقاومت جسمی هم می شود و بدن زن مقاومت می کند، امری که موجب بروز و یا تشدید خشونت های جسمی، روحی و کلامی توسط شوهر می شود. آسیبی که به زن در این نوع از خشونت وارد می شود بسیار جدی است. در واقع تجربه تجاوز از طرف کسی که زمانی دوستش داشته و به هر دلیلی اکنون این حس از دست رفته، بسیار رنج آور است. در این نوع تجاوز شوهر قدرت، نفوذ فردی، اجتماعی و روانی خود را به کار می گیرد تا با همسرش که به هر دلیلی، راضی به برقراری رابطه جنسی نیست، نزدیکی کند. آسیبی که به زن در این نوع از خشونت وارد می شود بسیار جدی است. در واقع تجربه تجاوز از طرف کسی که زمانی دوستش داشته و به هر دلیلی اکنون این حس از دست رفته، بسیار رنج آور است. در این نوع تجاوز شوهر قدرت، نفوذ فردی، اجتماعی و روانی خود را به کار می گیرد تا با همسرش که به هر دلیلی، راضی به برقراری رابطه جنسی نیست، نزدیکی کند. تفاوت فیزیکی زن و مرد در برقراری رابطه جنسی، لذت و ارضای جنسی، نقش اساسی در «تجاوز در بستر زناشویی» دارد چرا که زن می تواند بدون آنکه تمایل جنسی داشته باشد مورد استفاده جنسی قرار گیرد در حالی که این امر در مورد مردان وجود ندارد. تجاوز زناشویی در برخی از جوامع از جمله ایران بنا برباورهای مذهبی، سنتی، قواعد نانوشته اجتماعی و قوانین نوشته شده تبعیض آمیز، رنج مضاعفی را بر زنان تحمیل می کند. در این جوامع زنان به دلایل مختلف از جمله «حفظ آبرو» نه توان بازگویی درد و رنج ناشی از تجاوز همسر را دارند و نه می توانند از آن فرار کنند. بلکه در برخی موارد به خاطر فشارهای آشکار و پنهان فردی، خانوادگی و اجتماعی که در اطراف آنها وجود دارد راهی جز تن دادن به انجام به اصطلاح «وظایف زناشویی» ندارند. جلوگیری از آسیب رساندن به کودکان، ترس از ایجاد خشونتِ بیشتر ناشی از ترک رابطه با شوهر متجاوز، عدم امنیت مالی و ترس از آبرو از دیگر عواملی است که زن را مجبور به ادامه رابطه ای می کند که جسم، روح و شخصیت انسانیش را از بین می برد. اما چرا مردان علی رغم خواست و رضایت همسرشان با او همبستر می شوند؟ خشم، افسردگی، حسادت های عاشقانه یا غیرت منفی مردان، سلطه گری، نداشتن اعتماد به نفس، وابستگی کاذب و عدم آگاهی از خواسته های زن از جمله عواملی هستند که روانشناسان برای انجام چنین عملی از طرف مرد بر می شمارند. در ایران آمار مشخصی از میزان تجاوز زناشویی وجود ندارد اما شاید بتوان به جرات ادعا کرد که نبود آمار و قوانین بازدارنده دلیلی بر عدم توجه به این مساله مهم است. سابقه قانونگذاری و جرم انگاشتن «تجاوز در بستر زناشویی» به دهه هفتاد میلادی بر می گردد. برای اولین بار در سال ۱۹۷۵ قانون ممنوعیت تجاوز زناشویی در ایالت داکوتای جنوبی در آمریکا به تصویب رسید. تا پیش از این دوره، طبق آموزه های دین مسیحیت شوهر به خاطر وادار کردن همسر قانونی خود به برقراری رابطه جنسی مقصر شناخته نمی شد زیرا فرض بر آن بود که زن و مرد با عقد ازدواج بر مقاربت جنسی توافق کرده اند. تا سال ۱۹۹۳ میلادی تمام ۵۰ ایالت آمریکا تجاوز زناشویی را جرم دانستند. در ۲۰ دسامبر همان سال اعلامیه منع خشونت علیه زنان به تصویب مجمع عمومی سازمان ملل متحد رسید.

:: برای سهیل عربی، حکم ساب النبی اعدام نیست
"سهیل عربی" وبلاگ نویسی که شعبه چهل و یک دیوان عالی کشور حکم اعدام او را به اتهام جرم ساب النبی تأیید و پرونده وی را جهت اجرای حکم به اجرای احکام شعبه هفتاد و شش کیفری استان ارجاع داده است. آنچه از اخبار تراوش نموده اینکه سیستم قضایی کشور فقط جهت به اشتراک نهادن چند پست در فیسبوک متهم پرونده را مجرم تشخیص و محکم به اعدام وی داده است. با نظر به اینکه نگارنده تا کنون از مفاد و محتویات پرونده محکوم علیه مطلع نبوده نمیتواند اتهام ساب النبی را تصدیق و یا تکذیب نماید اما اگر بنا را آنگونه که سیستم قضایی کشور حکم داده است پذیرفته و جرم محکوم علیه را ساب النبی بدانیم میتوانیم از منظر و رویکرد دینی به تحلیل و بررسی حکم ساب النبی همت گماریم. "سب" در لغت به معنای توهین و دشنام بوده اما در دستگاه غالب فقهی به هرگونه عملی که از آن توهین و دشنام به رسول عظیم الشأن اسلام و ائمه معصومین بر آمده باشد اطلاق میشود. دستگاه فقهی غالب حکم ساب النبی را اعدام و سب کننده را مهدور الدم میشناسند. همین رویکرد دقیقا در قانون مجازات اسلامی تعریف و تدوین شده است. اینکه نظر شریعت اسلام در این مورد چیست بیش از پیش میباید متذکر شویم که دستگاه فقیهان بیش از پیش به روایات آحاد توجه داشته اند. اما روایت قرآن به عنوان اولین و محکم ترین منبع مورد استناد مسلمین در باب حکم ساب النبی چیست؟؟؟ قرآن به عنوان کتاب حقوق و اخلاق به جهت احترام به عقاید دیگران و زندگی مسالمت آمیز، مسلمین را از توهین به معبود ها و مقدسات آنان منع نموده است. در این راستا در آیه شریفه صد و هشتم سوره مبارکه انعام مسلمین را مخاطب قرار داده و میفرماید:

:: چرا کورش پدر ایران است ؟
دکتر علی بابایی :« کورش بزرگ آغازگر فصل نوینی در تاریخ جهانی بود، تا آنجا که می توان دوران تاریخی ای را که پس از فتح بابل به دست کورش بزرگ آغاز می شود، « عصر کورش بزرگ» نامید. در عصر کورش مناسبات سیاسی، فرهنگی و تجاری جهان در مقایسه با دوران پیش از آن به طور کامل دگرگون شد. پس از آن قلمروی این مناسبات یک «کلیت جغرافیایی» یعنی «جهان متمدن عصر باستان» بود . در این ساختار نوین، هر یک از شهربانی های هخامنشی نقش خود را ایفا می کردند. موسسات تجاری بابِل مانند «اگیبی» و «موراشو» هزینه های گوناگون شاهنشاهی هخامنشی را تامین می کردند و در ازای آن ، زمین های کشاورزی و آبراهه ها را از شاهان هخامنشی اجاره می کردند، و به رونق تجارت و آبادانی کشور یاری می رساندند. قلب شاهنشاهی هخامنشی جلوه گاه هنرمندی استادانی از لیدیه و کاپادوکیه و .. بود و دریانوردان فنیقی و کاریایی از قلمرو شاهنشاهی هخامنشی پاسداری می کردند. همکاری تیره ها و ملت های گوناگون در قالب شاهنشاهی هخامنشی به آفرینش تمدنی شکوهمند و با عظمت در سه قاره ی جهان انجامید. ساکنان این «اتحادیه ی جهانی» دریافتند که فرمانروایانی نیز وجود دارند که به جای جنگ و خونریزی – چنانچه رسم فرمانروایان آشوری و بابلی بود- به صلاح و نیکبختی مردمان خود و سایر ملت ها می اندیشند. دلگرمی تیره ها و ملت های گوناگونی که در زیر درفش هخامنشیان گرد هم آمده بودند، به عدالت فرمانروایانشان، آنها را به مشارکت بیشتر در ساخت تمدن شکوهمند هخامنشی ترغیب می کرد. حال باید دید که منشا تغییر نگرش کورش بزرگ به عنوان بنیانگذار حکومت هخامنشیان در قبال زیردستانشان چه بوده است؟ بدون تردید «سرشت قدرت» و «نماد مشروعیت» کورش با فرمانروایانی که پیش از او بر قلمروی حکومتش، فرمانروایی می کردند، متفاوت بوده است. این تفاوت از پیروی کورش از آموزه های مزدایی سرچشمه می گرفت. منشا مشروعیت و قدرت «شاه فرهمند مزدایی» از اهورامزدا بود و شاه مزدایی به امید پیروزی نهایی نیروهای خیر در برابر نیروهای شر، باید رهبری نیروهای خیر را در برابر نیروهای شر را در گیتی به دست می گرفت و از هرگونه بدی پرهیز می کرد، این پرهیزکاری نقطه ی مقابل فرمانروایان جاه طلب و ستمکار پیش از کورش بود. یکی ار نمادهای پیروزی نیروهای خیر در برابر شر، آبادانی ملک و سعادت رعیت است و شاه مزدایی می بایست در برای آسایش خلق در حد توان خود بکوشد.
