I mentioned Sunni not only because 90% of Muslims are Sunni but because of the status of ijtihad and the importance of fatwas. While a Sunni mufti can make a fatwa, nobody has to think anything of it/follow it/believe it, but if a Shia cleric makes a fatwa, it is a requirement of faith that they obey it. Therefor, a Sunni mufti can make a crazy fatwa saying it's ok to rape girls, but anyone with any basic understanding of Islam knows that is ridiculous and will completely ignore that fatwa altogether.
I don't think rape being underreported in Muslim countries has anything to do with Islam. Somehow, you insist it does but you can't seem to provide one piece of scripture/hadith that supports your belief, while I've provided many that supports mine. A good example would be that in the US only 16% of rapes go reported. Let me guess, this has nothing to do with the same societal pressures that are faced by women in Muslim countries, right? It must have everything to do with the pressures of Christianity that scares women into not coming forward.
