While the left argues that terrorism, pedophilia, slavery, and misogyny can and do occur in any society, Islam is the only major religion with a holy book that commands such things and a prophet who modeled them, which is why we have consistently seen these compulsions being brought to every country it has infiltrated for the last 1,400 years.
Now, thanks to the left’s politically correct efforts to protect Islam, Muslims are finding it easy to justify even what should be considered the most inhumane behavior by invoking their religious and cultural rights.
On Tuesday, Pakistani police raided an elderly imam’s home just as he was about to sign a marriage contract between a child bride and her soon-to-be husband, who is 5 times her age. Daily Mail reports that the authorities thwarted the Islamic Nikah marriage, which was officiated by Qazi Haji Solangi, between 50-year-old Jeetmal Mehar and 10-year-old Pathani Mangrio just before it could be finalized. However, nothing could prepare authorities for how the innocent child’s Muslim mother responded.
When confronted about her underage daughter’s illegal marriage, Masmat Nabiat confessed that she had fully consented for her daughter to marry the pedophile because he had offered her over $7,200, which she and her husband needed because “we couldn’t pay back a loan” of approximately $4,550.
Fearing criminal charges, Nabiat expressed remorse for her decision to sell her own child but continued to justify her actions by claiming that there was no other way for she and her husband to accrue an income.
“Neither I nor my husband wanted to do this injustice to our daughter but we had no choice. The groom also said he will not demand any dowry and he will bear all the expenses of marriage.”
Expectedly, Solangi claimed that he had no idea he was breaking the law, stating that he didn’t know the girl, who is clearly a child, was underage, according to the Mirror.
“I was approached by Muhammad Mehar for reciting Nikah,” Solangi, who performed the marriage, said. “I didn’t know the girl is only 10 years old as I didn’t ask for age of bride and groom. I just asked the names of the bride, groom and their parents name and recited Nikah.”
Commenting on the raid, investigating officer Gulzar Mari confirmed while the groom managed to flee the scene, his men were able to arrest and charge the parents, imam, and all others involved in the illegal marriage. The child has since been placed with her paternal grandfather.
“On December 19, around 11am we received information that a minor girl was being married to a 50-year-old man. We took immediate action and raided the house of Muhammad Mehar. He was the broker in this marriage and had taken £340 ($455 US) from the groom and £170 ($228) from bride’s family.”
Child marriage is still a punishable offense in Pakistan, although Muslims are pushing harder each year to have this legislation repealed in accordance with Sharia law. Now that Pakistan is nearing a 100-percent Islamic population, it is daily moving toward the purest implementation of full-blown Sharia law, which, of course, includes the recognition of pedophilia and child marriage.
Although authorities are still cracking down on offenders, it is only a matter of time before they submit to the populace’s call to legalize child marriage so that they may be free to practice Islam as Allah commanded and Muhammad modeled.
- Sahih Muslim (8:3309) – Muhammad consummated his marriage to Aisha when she was only nine. (See also Sahih Bukhari 58:234 and many other places). Nowhere in the reliable Hadith or Sira is there any other age given. Other references are Sahih Bukhari 3896, 5158 and 3311.
- Sahih Bukhari (62:18) – Aisha’s father, Abu Bakr, wasn’t on board at first, but Muhammad explained how the rules of their religion made it possible.
