Law Banning Pedophilia Fails in Pakistan: Again

0

It’s politically incorrect to say so these days, but I’m pretty far from being politically correct.

Muslims follow Islam and pedophilia is central to their pure Islamic “religion.”

The “Religion of Peace” officially sanctions men to have a child bride(s).

Just a happy bride with her new hubby.

Pakistan is a Muslim country.  Their history is born from terrorism.  It was originally a part of India but when the British pulled out the Muslims immediately went to war against their Hindu countrymen.  The war has never been resolved and officially there is a state of war between Pakistan and India.  Just like there is a state of war between Muslims and the West in general.

At any rate, Pakistan’s politicians have been trying to pass a law raising the age for marriage to 18 for some time.  Not that it would be enforced if it passed, of course.  They recently failed again.

Hat tip Washington Post:

Pakistani lawmakers had to withdraw a bill aimed at curbing the practice of child marriage after a prominent religious body declared the legislation un-Islamic.

The bill, which proposed raising the marriage age for females from 16 to 18, also called for harsher penalties for those who would arrange marriages involving children. Despite the laws in place, child marriages, particularly involving young female brides, are common in parts of the country.

Being opposed to pedophilia is “un-Islamic.”  Well, given that their “Prophet” Mohammed was a pedophile how could we be shocked at that?  He was married to a nine-year-old girl.  Great role model.  Take another look at the “happy bride” pictured above.

Is THAT the true face of Islam? There’s more:

It’s estimated that some 20 percent of girls in the country are married before they turn 18.

But the Council of Islamic Ideology, a constitutional body which gives advice to parliament on the compatibility of laws with Sharia, appeared to slap down the legislation after deeming it “un-Islamic” and “blasphemous,” according to Agence France Presse. It had already handed down a similar ruling in 2014.

Girls Not Brides, an international coalition of civil society organizations working against child marriage, cited this religious body as an obstacle toward reform. A number of provinces in Pakistan have pushed for legislation cracking down on child marriages, but implementing the law is more difficult.

Clerics on the council object to minimum age requirements, arguing instead that an individual can marry once reaching puberty, which can be as early as the age of 9.

Make up your own mind and tell us what you think.
