connecting when they are older. Honestly while I am all for this freedom of expression and religion I'd have to say I would stop the line right here
pretty much they would be cutting off that girl from experiencing the rest of her life.
And that pretty well sums up rights as a woman under Muslim sharia law, do whatever you can to ensure the property remains yours, and, remember, you
are allowed to beat them if they refuse you sex, but, you dishonor her if you:
A) Bruise her face.
B)Raise your hand above your shoulder to strike her.
C)Call her names whilst doing it.
D)Beat her in sensitive places.
Admittedly, not all muslim men are backwards looking in this respect, i'm sure not all the women are made to walk three paces behind their husbands,
or to acquiesce to demands for sex with the use of force and violence (that is rape no matter who said a long time ago it was ok to do).
The religion of "Peace" makes me want to puke more often than any other organised religion.
And what is the point of a child being married to another child?, at 12 years old they should be having fun and their rights as children should be
being protected under the childrens charter in the UK.
It doesn't say anything in the charter about allowing a 12year old girl to get hicthed to an older bloke who understands the law says he is supposed
to be the same age as her, but, the imam and himself don't give a # enough to follow the laws of the land.
I bet someone a pound, this kind of marriage has already happened, somewhere in the UK a child has entered a matrimonial home with something not much
short of a paedophile waiting for her.
Would she still be allowed to go to school or would she have been whisked off to pakistan?, to go and live among
people where this kind of behavior is positively encouraged.
I can understand that in medieval times and before life expectancies were very poor, people needed to get married young and begin to produce children,
but, just as a reminder for some people, we have not had medieval life expectancies since medieaval times, and, victorian life expectancies were bad
as well, but, since victorian times life expectancies have increased dramatically.
There is no natural or bio-logical need for something like this to happen, and there is NO way a 12year old child is competent enough to be making a
decision like this, and this is why "Parents" have control of their rights until they are 16.
It seems someone who has an emotional maturity greater than that of someone thinking this is ok for a 12 year old child, should have parental rights
over the moron parents.
Oh yeah, the care system is there to pick up the pieces of wrecked lives, to replace moron parents, any kid being made to go through with this should
be put into care,
