In many parts of the Muslim world pedophiles are able to practice their evil freely. Not only do they not have to fear the law, but the Sharia law courts often approve matrimony between the criminals and the victims. The Prophet Mohammad married a nine year old, so what should keep his followers from doing the same? Child marriage runs rampant throughout the Muslim world and is promoted through Sharia as a way to keep young women pure. Usually these unions of perverts and little girls is kept private, but sometimes an example slips into the public eye. When it happens it gives yet another opportunity to show there is much to fear in Sharia.
Last Saturday at a mosque in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia there was a public wedding ceremony of a 14-year-old student to a 23-year-old teacher. Such a union would be justification for prison time in America, but it is a time for joyous celebration in the predominately Muslim nation. Schoolgirl Siti Maryam Mahood privately married Abdul Manan Othman last summer, but Saturday’s event was for people to honor the couple. The official pedophilia wedlock took place last July after a Sharia court approved the marriage.
“It has been hard trying to juggle two roles — as a student and a wife — but I am taking it in my stride. My husband is a teacher at a primary school and he is a family friend.” – Siti Maryam
What corrupt ideology allows a young schoolgirl to have to learn what it means to juggle being both a student and a wife to some sick-minded teacher? This groom is the kind of guy who gets caught on MSNBC’s “To Catch a Predator” eating a cookie with his pants down. But according to Sharia he is an honorable husband to be praised. Where’s Chris Hansen when you need him?
The couple’s marriage was celebrated with 250 other couples at the mosque that day. I wonder how many of those other marriages were galas of pedophilia? The event was organized by Kuala Lumpur’s Islamic department. Anyone else made ill by how helpful an Islamic department can be to child molesters? In fact, one Southern region leader has publicly promoted such marriages as a way to keep young girls from having premarital sex.
There is at least one women’s organization in Malaysia speaking out against this marriage. I wonder if we’ll hear the same from the lefty women’s groups in America? Ivy Josiah, executive director of local group Women’s Aid Organization has rightfully asked the government to make such marriages illegal.
“Cultural and religious sensitivities should not be excuses for what is clearly a human rights violation…The government can no longer turn a blind eye…child marriage amounts to paedophilia”. – Josiah
The next time you’re told there’s nothing wrong with Sharia law, you send that person a link to this article. Women and young girls are victims of vicious crimes thanks to Sharia. And many secular governments let it slide as a way of being culturally sensitive. It’s time to stop the insanity and end the celebration of evil.
