British Muslim mosque leaders are agreeing to carry out secret marriages with child brides as young as 12 in the UK, it emerged today.

In an undercover investigation, a Shi’te mosque leader agreed to marry a 12-year-old girl so long as she was a willing participant.

A Sunday Times journalist visited the Husaini Islamic Centre in Peterborough – the ‘first Shi’te mosque in the whole of Europe’ – posing as the father of a 12-year-old girl.

According to the newspaper, the reporter was told by Imam Mohamed Kassamali that ‘under sharia [Islamic law] there is no problem’ in marrying a 12-year-old.

But while he declared Islamic Law dictated a girl should see ‘her first sign of puberty at the house of her husband’, he admitted they would all get in to trouble if she went to police saying she was forced into the marriage.

    To have sex with a 12-year old child is ILLEGAL in the UK and this in itself should be enough to get the mosque closed down, a number of people on the sex-offender’s list and a few stiff jail sentences.
    Should be enough?
    However, I suspect that multi-culturalism will trump child welfare as so often happens.
    No one in the UK should tolerate this and any dhimmified Lefties who hamper prosecutions or defend these activities should also be treated as sex-offenders themselves.

    from the article:
    ‘The current British law allows for Imans to carry out religious marriage ceremonies of consenting brides and grooms aged under 16 so long as they don’t have sex until they are 16.’

    Funny, I don’t remember the law being changed, wonder why I never heard about that.
    Time people stopped thinking that cameron and co don’t know what’s going on. They know EXACTLY what’s happening, all according to plan. Bought and paid for, just like the daughters that this is about.

    When the marriage can be proven send all connected to the pen.

    Perhaps sharia law has been implemented as a parallel legal system system. And our treasonous governments have forgot to mention this point to their victim voters.This might explain some of the recent bizarre legal outcomes of recent years.The EDL have stated there is a two tier legal system in place in the UK. The recent poppy burning incident being just one such case where Tommy Robinson was fined twice as much as the poppy burners.And the Somalian women who seriously attacked a young couple and where spared prison by a British judge because of their “religion”.(They were not acquainted with the effects of alcohol). A parallel legal system would also explain French and German “no go areas”. (Where police have limited legal authority).Perhaps those multi -billion dollar investments from certain middle eastern kingdoms come with some massive strings attached!
    And we thought they were just interested in international dome building schemes.
