Bacha Bazi Boys VIDEO – Afghanistan’s “Dancing Boys” & How Muslims Pimp Young Boys for Gang Rape

By Debbie Schlussel

For years, I’ve repeatedly written about the myth of “Islamic modesty.” It’s bunk, but we somehow assign an exoticism and strange respect for devout Muslims who actually engage in some of the worst sexual, immodest practices, including using young boys as sex slaves all over the Islamic world (something I’ve also written about).  And our hand-picked Prime Minister, Afghanistan’s Hamid Karzai, actually allows this pimping and human trafficking of poor, young boys to devout Muslims to gang rape them.  And that’s after they make the boys wear women’s clothing and dance for them.  It’s truly disgusting.  If you saw the movie or read the book, “The Kite Runner” (read my review), you are probably familiar with the practice.

You must watch this video of last night’s “Frontline” on this (for some reason the embed code isn’t working, so PLEASE click on the link and watch–it’s important).  It will blow your mind.  Even though I knew about this stuff, it blew mine–the brazen statements and excuses for raping young kids.  They even have a brazen name for it:  “Bacha Bazi” or “Boy Play.”  FINALLY, PBS a/k/a Palestinian Broadcasting Service did something right!  I commend producer Jamie Doran for making this film.  But I have the utmost respect for the courageous Afghan journalist in exile, Najibullah Quraishi, for having the bravery and guts to do this, even though it surely puts a death sentence on him.  Why are our soldiers there?  Why are they dying for these people who pimp out their kids, their nephews for gang rape?  When Muslims do this to their own, no-one cares.  When Israelis build a few apartments on their own land, that’s cause for outrage.

Here are some previews followed by my summary of some of the disturbing stuff, Afghan police and government officials all in on the slavery and pimping of young boys for sex, and many of them admitting they like to have sex with these kids.


The most disturbing parts of this program were the frank, shameless talk by many Afghan men about having sex with (actually, raping) these young boys, as if it’s nothing, no big deal. Ditto for the parents and relatives who knowingly sell their kids into this for money.

Read these comments, as it will shock you:

An Afghan warlord, Mestri, says that he “kept” a boy for sodomy and other forms of sex because “all of the others commanders have one, and I have to compete.” Even more sickening is his statement that, unlike the others, he actually asked his wife if it was okay to own a boy sex slave because “I’m a cultured person.” Yeah, that’s high culture: getting your wife’s permission before you own a young boy whom you’ll sodomize every night. Nauseating. But these are the people we are fighting for in Afghanistan. Yay!

A man who says he’s the father of “Shafiq,” the young sex slave/”dancing boy” who is followed throughout the video, says he knows the boy is being sold into a life of rape and sex slavery, but, don’t worry, he’ll forget about it, eventually.

We know what happens. But he’s a boy. Whatever happens will pass.

Incredible.  Again, this is the country whose people are getting gazillions in American tax money and aid.

And you know those Afghan police we trained and continue to train? Well, they’re all in on it. Creepy scenes of lustful men watching and smiling at young boys dressed as women, dancing for them, include all of the authorities who are supposed to be investigating and shutting this crap down.

Afghanistan . . . ain’t “Islamic democracy” grand. About as grand as “Islamic modesty.

Reader Steve, who, like me, this when it aired last night, sums up my feelings well:

PBS ran a Frontline program last night exposing the Afghan’s practice of running homosexual child prostitution rings.  It’s obviously an example of a blind squirrel finding a nut.

It was jaw dropping to see the woman covered from head to toe for modesty while the men are gang raping 11 year old boys.

It certainly put a few more nails in the coffin of the Muslim’s PR campaign to show they have higher morality.

Let’s hope, Steve.  Let’s hope.  But the world, sadly, doesn’t care about despicable deeds, when the perpetrator is Muslim.

    Before posting your comments on the internet for the world to see; 1. Learn to spell. 2. Correct grammar would be nice.

      @David, why don’t you stop being the grammer police! SCREW YOU and your correct grammer you can spell this asshole!

      Hall O. Ween on October 29, 2011 at 5:07 pm

    They need to “smell some puss”??? What a crude, horrible thing to say!!!

    Cindy on June 3, 2010 at 9:54 pm

      and one thing more i m sure this is a paid and guided video as any one can feel from the expressions on faces of this video characters. this is not the first time first u.s nd NATO countries destroyed these poor people throgh daizy cutter bombs nd now destroyin there image through propeganda.

      ali nasir on September 8, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    M tom from your statement, “Muslims men need to smell some puss.” I can only assume you’d be okay with the practice, if, it was females who took the place of the “dancing boys?” If so, please urgently seek the therapy/treatment/medication that you need!!!!

Karl Marx was at least right about one thing: religion (at least the “organized” kind) is the opiate of the masses. Sadly, evil happens everywhere. And in light of the documentary, the Bachi Bazi practitioners in Afghanistan can no longer lord it to Whitey that they’re more moral than the average X-tian. Or Roman Catholic priest.

The "Reverend" Jacques on April 23, 2010 at 8:37 am

It’s not popular to state that Islam is at its very core an extremist religion based on hate, intimidation and cruelty, but it’s sadly true.

In Islam, there is no other acceptable religion. There is no other acceptable code of conduct. If someone is not Muslim, they will either convert or die hopelessly lost. Women are objects and will never be treated fairly. Children will be brutalized without any devout Muslim speaking in their defense. There is no reasoned, rational debate possible because all other points of view are wrong.

Islam is an extremist faith that is inherently incompatible with freedom. Make no mistake, Islam and all Muslims are already at war with all other religions and beliefs, and we need to understand that and start acting appropriately very soon.

These boys would be starving on the street if they did not volunteer or were recruited to dance at parties. They are taken care of, provided for. Many of them have separate jobs and do the dancing at parties on the side. It’s their culture, so what? Look at our culture. There are tons of under age female prostitutes working the streets which is even more dangerous. They are recruited by Americanp pimps every day. Look at are sick porn where women are severely degraded. Look at Gay Pride parades and the openly sexual acts that occur. In these countries boys become men much sooner. I’ve seen a ton of videos featuring these bacha bazi. None of them look like they’ve been severely abused. At the most they look tired from dancing long and hard. Otherwise, look at their faces, they are totally serene. Many of them are happy, lavished with gifts and certainly necesseties. Better than being on the street due to being shunned by their families or starving. It’s not as big a deal as you’re making it out to be. Like I said look at our culture, the kiddie porn, the degradation, open sex acts on the streets. At least these people are completely clothed and these things are done in private. The men and women are segregated, so it’s normal for people to dance at weddings and parties.

    Typical MultiKulti. You will probably excuse cannibalism as well. You would say that it is great that such diversity exists.

    In our society this kind of stuff is one of the most despicable crimes. In theirs – widely accepted and for all purposes legal daily practice. Still see no difference? I bet you don’t.

    Ivan on April 23, 2010 at 6:59 pm

    Star — I bet you’re an Afghan man living in the United States and secretly follow this horrific practice. I bet you “own” a boy, huh? We see right through you…you sick f**k Degenerates like you should get the same medicine you’re freely trying to sell to others.

    Chloe on September 3, 2010 at 1:11 am

    What kind of idiot are you?, where you are saying “its actually o.k. to do horrible acts to, lets not forget, children!, just so they won’t be on the street or whatever! You are just an amoral idiot, and what cold, cold world did you come from?

    Jojo on January 4, 2011 at 12:27 am

    There is a better way than being raped! That is provide education for a better life. The pimps can very well do that if they care for the future of Afganistan. Please dont justify these pimps.

    siva on August 15, 2011 at 12:05 am

It’s easier to do an expose on Afghanistan than to ask about sex practices in the USA. I wonder if Frontline will follow up on those 18-year-old Brazilian shemales, manufactured for the American market.

tehag on April 23, 2010 at 5:53 pm

Thank you, Debbie for telling about this story. I just got done watching both the two preview clips and the whole documentary via your link to the PBS website. I am speechless. This is very disturbing.

Now if everyone will excuse me, I’m going to take several showers as I now feel dirty.

JeffE on April 25, 2010 at 12:59 am

There’s no way a person could condone the sodomizing of boys unless you were a gay male fantasizing about these very acts.

gerob on April 25, 2010 at 11:21 am

i saw the program on gpb last night, this culture has been going on for centuries look at the egyptians, we practice the same thing here in the united states then cry wolf, someone stole my child, yeh and that child had a price tag to go with it, kids are stolen everyday and taken to mexico for shipment to other countries especially if they are blonde or red haired and blue or green eyes. when i see crap on tv about how to help this poor mother, who is in jail because her child is missing, try looking where she stashes her cash. children go missing everyday, never found, beautiful young women stolen, shipped out into slavery and never heard from again, police are looking in swamps, wooded areas, try looking at the private plane leaving the airport going to a drop off point, but this continues sorry the dancing boys was horrible. leila

leila on April 25, 2010 at 6:49 pm

I watched the entire documentary, and at times, had to tune away, especially when listening to that creepy little man, named Dastager, confessing to Mestary, on how he, and a number of drunkened soldiers, gang raped a young boy, in a car!

Simply monstrous, how these “De-men” (demon) can give off the appearance by day, that they’re involved “loving’, heteresexual relationships with their wives and children, while arousing themselves at night, by engaging in the homosexual rape, of under age boys!

There were so many disturbing scenes, exposing rampant homosexual behavior, which clearly exists, in many middle easter countries! I hope that all the boys will be eventually rescued, as Shafiq was, and hopefully, try to lead ‘normal” lives, after their Bacha Bazi ordeal!

Renee X. on April 29, 2010 at 4:08 pm

I hope the Obama administration takes a look at this practice in Afghanistan and eliminates it. Public awareness is needed. These boys should qualify for refugee status in the United States and be placed in foster care. These boys will be the future terrorists of the world if we do not try to help them.

Donald Trump on May 8, 2010 at 8:44 pm

Islam: The closet homosexual / misogynists’ religion.

Sablicious on May 16, 2010 at 10:40 am

The documentary is HORRIFYING.

But I think it’s foolish to conflate homosexuality and pederasty. They’re not the same thing and I think it hurts our cause.

Lifer on June 11, 2010 at 11:55 pm

Islam : little boys are raped by Warlords, Policemen,etc

Catholicism: little boys are raped by Men of God

Go figure.

sam on September 3, 2010 at 4:57 am

listen guys this documatary is truly horrific and make me sick.
this should not be done to any human being.

What don’t understand is how a few dirty minded distguting perverted men who are doing these actions represent the whole of islam.
come on guys you need to put everything into context and i don’t want to get started on Americans because bashing and cussing will not get us anywhere.
All i am saying is before you write islam off go read about it for yourself and dont be a sheep and listen to what everyone saying read the Qoran and little booklet and if you then think it is as horrible as people make it out to be then so be it but judge it for YOURSELF.

Thanks guys

abdi on September 11, 2010 at 11:02 am

I’ve seen the video from Frontline in the library.

The video is fake. The star of the video later appears in the Video “Afghan Star” as the MC of the hit television series in Afghanistan that imitates American Idol.

Probably the people in the video thought they were doing a story about Classical Afghani music.

I doubt that they even know about the Frontline show, or the star of the Frontline show wouldn’t appear as the MC of Afghani Idol (Afghan Star)

The most serious child abuse I saw in teh Frontline article was when a man put a type of guitar in a 9-year old’s hands and carefully explained the “scale” that he was to play.

Actually, I understood enough to know that he was explaining a dastgah (a Persian scale) and what it sounded like on this instrument and how the 9-year-old was to play it.

It’s a very long way from teaching a C chord on a guitar to a 9-year-old to abusing him!

All the interviewed people on the show were pretty emphatic on one point that the show glided over: NO ONE sexually abuses pre-pubescent children! That’s not what it’s about.

It’s about using men and boys as substitutes for women in a society where showing women on stage is shameful.

It’s the same thing in Kabuki theatre.

It may cause some problems, but far fewer than using REAL women cause!

Peter on March 11, 2011 at 5:37 pm

Debbie, I am truly grateful for the work that you have done to raise awareness of this horrific practice. My 16 year son made me aware of the documentary after viewing in his public school classroom- World Lit class. He has been deeply troubled and shared how one of his classmates is referred to as “_his first name_” Bazi because it rhymes. I can’t say I even know where to begin to help make sense of information I would have preferred to introduce. Do you know if this is considered content appropriate for classroom content in the majority of US schools?

Celia on March 18, 2011 at 12:21 am

    It is equally disturbing to learn school teachers are showing this horrific homosexual muslim practices at school.
    Kids are not psycologically ready to digest some issue like this one. I have ahard tiome thinking monsters in the muslim world keep women hidden like animals while raping boys and parading them in girls clothes while a bunch of muslim homosexuals watch in the name of Alah. According to these muslim religion, men are not to mess with women, but it is ok to rape boys.
    I would question the wisdom of a teacher showing this disturbing videao to kids. Perhaos that teacher is a molester him/herself.
    We have to get muslim men on sight, dress them in girls clothes, and force them to dance before a audience of gay men.The the gay crown can sodomize these muslim men.
    The rest of the time we should dress these homosexual muslim men in tents, cover them up the way muslims do to their sisters, their mothers, and see how they enjoy walking inside a tent.
    Muslims bastards. A religion of homosexuals that hate women, and enjoy raping boys as an expression of culture, like “Pearls” like that stupid religion says, need be anyhilated.
    Lets drop a couple A bombs over them and clean up all that area of the planet.

    Jaime on December 19, 2011 at 9:11 pm

i see in ur web.it is shame for muslims but non muslim also doing this prictise in their countries. but nobody can brougtup it.non muslims have no respect for his mother,sister, and their sons. i have seen many videos on net where father is doning bed practice with his son. it is so much shame for u and ur religion.

iqbal hijazi on May 30, 2011 at 1:33 pm

one thing i wud like to clearify that homosexuality is prohibited in islam so if some muslims are become sick mind it does not mean that it is acceptable in muslim society. before giving comments u western people should observe ur own society where even gay marriages are legally accepted despite abundence of pussies. while on internet thousends of ur gay websites are delivering this poison in minds of teenagers including our muslim childrens still our society is far better then urs in this regards. so ur opinion should not be biased.thanks

The islamic Heaven is a whorehouse 72 houris and boys like pearls.

joey on September 14, 2011 at 6:15 am

those who say that it is in all over Afghanistan. they are lier. there are not such things in Afghanistan but there are some people who are do such things they are as much shameful as these repoters are for these reporter ask such bad question which is very difficult to say.

gulab khan on November 16, 2011 at 1:14 am

    These muslim garbage people are based on a religion of homosexuality. They hate women, they would rather sodomize boys than have sex with women.
    They would destroy the life of a human being, because raping a boy and making him a slave, a sex slave, will make him an homosexual forever, he will learn that muslim homosexual fgarbage from the start. This muslim society, from those who permit this, all the way to the rapist men and their religion, are the worst scum on Earh.
    They rape boys, so it is not even a girl, but a boy. This is evil. The muslim woprld accepts it.
    Muslim homosexuals, what a garbage, rubbish people. You have no fix, we got to drop a couplpe nuclear bombs and erase you from the planet.
    There are criminals all over the world, but this is raping of boys as cultural and religious expression. We afre not talking about adult homosexuals doing what they want, this is grown muslim men and the muslim society using boys, whom we as adults should protect, as sexual toys. This is not abnout horny men, because horny men look for women, these are evil muslim monsters sticking their manhood into little male boys.
    In South America, musliom people are the equivalent of cow manure. You stink, and you are child molesters and homosexuals.
    I knew it, since you see muslim men on streets, no women around, these muslim men hate women, but they like boys.

    Mulim garbage. A religion that promotes raping boys, not even girls, but boys, is EVIL.

    If muslim religion were against it, why does it happen openly, why is irt that these people are not put in jail, killed, because muslim religion is based in homosexuality, they hate women, they attack boys. No wonder why they are so screwed up, all muslim men get sodomized by their parents when boys

    Jaime on December 16, 2011 at 1:50 pm

i didn’t watch the videos but the story and comments were enough for me to form this opinion. if they want to have sex with a boy, why dont these grown men have sex with each other.

sammi on December 2, 2011 at 1:05 pm

Evil muslims are not only homosexuals that hate women, forcing them into slavery, ignorance and beatings, but these same muslim homosexuals rape boys, innocent boys.
Scum on earth, a father selling his boy to be raped, a mother accepting her husband owning a boy to be sodomized, a man willingly destroying the life of a bloy for low instincts, a nation, a president that allows for it, a society rthat calls itself “cultured” for homosexually raping boys, and hating girls.
We ought to drop nuclear bnombs and erase such garbage people. They rape boys in the name of God, and the rest of the muslims that do not do this, condone kit, cover up for it, celebrate this, together with the defgradation of women.
These muslim people, the muslim world is evil garbage. I am from South America, and I am proud to say tyou muslkim garbage are scum on Earth, if I see a muslim in my country, in South america, I will beat you up and tie you to a tree so the Condors will eat you …piece by piece. I feel sorry for the Condors, but you are as good as landfill trash!

Jaime on December 16, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    I’m absolutely repulsed by your statements. These men are not HOMOSEXUALS, they are PEDOPHILES. A very common, and rude misunderstanding of sexuality.

    I myself am gay, and could never dream of doing any of these things. I am a normal, law-abiding, citizen, who seeks people of my own age. Not young children. Please watch your words, because they are extremely offensive.

    Luke on March 23, 2012 at 1:21 am

under any law, Scum on earth, a father selling his boy to be raped, would be the worst thing that any human being could do! these MEN( if that is the word) should have thier fucking dicks cut off in public dirty evil bastards the whole lot of them, they are ment to be men of god well lets hope they will pay for thier sick deeds. they d are to call themselves MUSLIMS they don’t fucking know what the word means, even lower than pigs full of shit. they should be sent over here and we shall see the men of this land fucking them up the arse that would teach them. how dare they touch little boys wreck thier lives for ever. if I ever see any of these dirty PIGS here, I get all the skin heads to fuck the shit out these muslim pigs.the world should help these poor childern may god protect them.

desnay on April 14, 2012 at 1:30 pm

These Muslim men take many wives,produce many children like pigs,and find sex to be the greatest thing in life and also after-life.Sothat if they die in Jehad , that is war foe their religion, they would be rewarded in heaven by Allah with 72 Howries (Beautiful women) for sex and also young boys bright as pearls , of course for sex .And it is pertinent to know that the founder Muhammad married many wives, the last being Aiyesha , a girl of only six years.One has to read the scholarly work “Sex and Violence in Islam” by Dr Anwar Sheikh to know and wonder how this Arabic Imperialism , possessing hardly anything noble about it has prospered as a leading religion of tyhe world , making it popular by exploiting the lower and beastly nature of human beings !

mastahari on June 6, 2012 at 7:24 am

This documentary did disgust but not shock me.Bacha Bazi is an ancient practice of abusing young boys. For those saying oh don’t get all bent out of shape for it because other countries bare similar happenings. Well I am an American and my daughter was molested by a family member. I almost killed him and had ball bat in hand to do him damage. Beleive you me he regretted touching my daughter and the sick pervert is in prison. Yeah pedophileas are global but Americans who hand thier children out for prostitution- sexual abuse to rape GO TO PRISON! Why? Because its WRONG and due to that laws are in place to prosecute perpetraters. And to you trying to defend homosexuality- the poor kids are being raped by men not women-really your offended by the very meaning of homosexual but you’re not more outraged at the abuse and the ruined little souls??? Yeah you need to stay on course. This documentary was simply to show a serious problem. For me it is double outrage due to America gives the Afghanistan government aid and money. The US should abandon all ties and get out of that sick country. Place shame on them so hard by the global communities that the Afghanistan government finally arrests these perverts. I am learning something particular in the Asia Minor countries that they have these laws simply to satisfy concerns from years ago. Yet it is only a guise to seem as if they are complying with western morals, in order to seek acceptance from other dominating mainly western nations(not America alone) only because of money-money-money. In Pakistan the brothel houses of kidnapped girls the police turn a blind eye to. In America brothel houses do get busted and the media just loves to wave the fan on that flame! Yet in Pakistan it is only going to be handled when pressure from outside or political entities push the cause. From honor killings to recruiting men to seek nonmuslim women to marry in order to convert her and then produce Mohammed Jr. to bacha bazi. In Islamic states pedophilea is permitted more so than not due to ISLAM is a male chauvenistic governmental system where women and children are property and all who submit to this system become entangled in laws that direct how you should do everything to how one even sits on a toilet! Honor killings are legal by Islam beleifs. And when a Muslim man does things such as rape and sleep with prostitutes its more permitable than a woman or child reporting to the authorities that a Muslim man harmed them sexually. This documentary says more in truth and sadly depressing is this truth. I fear for the young men and women.
