Is it halloween already? To be honest, i am not sure which galls me more. The idea that women can be married off at 10 years old, or the actual redefinition of the word ‘marriage’ in the first place. When what they really mean is a sex-slave. I suppose once you remove the notion that consent is necessary from women, both things are the same.
The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia has reportedly voiced his support for the marriage of under-age females in the kingdom, while condemning those who seek to raise the legal marriage age.
A girl is ready to marry at 10 or 12 years of age according to Islam, London-based Al Hayat reported Sheikh Abdul-Aziz Al Sheikh as saying, adding that Islamic law is not repressive to women.
“Those who call for raising the age of marriage to 25 are absolutely mistaken,”Al Sheikh said in a lecture at the faculty of Imam Mohamed bin Saud Islamic University in Riyadh.
