Life under Islam

One of the great advantages of the internet is that we may see a detailed picture of life in other cultures.  From Egypt to Pakistan, girls and women are nothing more than chattel to buy and sell at leisure.  Here we have two more horrific examples of life in Muslim countries.  While both Egypt and Pakistan have laws on the books to protect young girls, they are merely window dressing to convince Western governments to keep sending billions of dollars in support to the regimes.  The bottom line is that both are Islamic governments and the Quran and example of the pedophile Mohammed take precedent over any secular law.

First from Egypt a "holy" man cites the Quran to support the marriage of very young girls.


Egypt sheikh says girls should be married, have children starting at 14-years-old

Egypt’s Yassir Barhami has called for 14-year-old girls to be married and have children.

CAIRO: An Egyptian cleric and member of the Constituent Assembly tasked with drafting Egypt’s new constitution has said that girls 14-years-old are permitted to have sexual relations under Islam and has proposed reducing the marriage age limit as a result.

“It is permissible for the girl at the age of 9 or 10 to marry,” Yassir Barhami said in discussing a woman’s sexual reproduction and his interpretation of Islam.

The Salafist – ultra-conservative – preacher claimed that under Islam when a girl begins to ovulate she is ready for marriage.

He added during a television debate on Dream TV last Tuesday that “marriage of a girl would not be a supplement for education,” but added that it “was better” to marry a girl young “than falling into sin with customary marriage.”

The cleric cited the Qur’an in arguing that any girl who is menstruating should be married and begin having children.

At the same time of advocating the marriage age be dropped to 14-years-old, he argued that the Salafist Constituent Assembly is also pushing for a law that denies “slavery against women” in the new constitution.

Manal al-Taibi, a now resigned member of the Constituent Assembly, said that this call is the promotion of child marriage and is akin to rape.

She has resigned her position on the assembly in protest to the overuse of Sharia law, or Islamic law, permeating the drafting process.

Then from Pakistan we have a 10 year old Christian kidnapped, raped, "converted" to Islam and married to her rapist.  And of course, the police "know nothing".


10 Year old Christian girl forcibly converted to Islam and married in Pakistan

Gujranwala: September 16, 2012. (PCP) A Pakistani Christian girl student of grade 6th named Aney daughter of Tariq, resident of Dhula Gujranwala, was kidnapped on September 4, 2012, on her way to school.

The Muslim kidnaper Haider Butt son of Mohammad Ijaz announced same day of September 4th that Aney has converted to Islam and married him with her free will.

The official age of marriage in Pakistan is 18 years when any one becomes officially adult while Islamic law in Pakistan sets that age of 16 but some Muslim sects perform marriages when girl is confirmed to have monthly periods.

According to informed sources in Aney kidnapping, forced conversion and Islamic marriage claim by Muslim kidnapper not fit because Aney was not having her monthly periods even.

Today a delegation of Christian-Muslim for peaceful solution met with Muslim of Dhula: Mr. Jamil Bhatti, Rev. Fr. Almas John, Babu Chand Ashiq, Shahzad Lawrence, Qari Mohammad Zahid, Qari Mohammad Akbar Nakishbandi and Qari Peer Mohammad Kasif

The area police are silent on this case of abduction and enforced conversion of minor Christian girl Aney Tariq.
