MUSLIM CLERICS CAUGHT AGREEING TO MARRY OFF UNDERAGE GIRLS – In an undercover operation Muslim clerics at no less than 18 mosques around Britain were found to be promoting and condoning the marriage of girls as young as 14 years of age.
Four Imams are now being questioned by the UK authorities over the practice as the legal age for marriage in the UK remains at 16; which is also tied in to the age of sexual consent.
Under Islamic Sharia law, girls can legally marry once they reach puberty and once again the controversy of Sharia law being practiced in the UK by Muslims is being brought into full view.
According to the investigation some eighteen clerics are being questioned over their role in presiding over marriages involving girls as young as 14 years of age.
During the investigation a couple posing as the mother and brother of a 14 year old girl visited 56 mosques across the UK and asked Imams to preside over an Islamic marriage ceremony; known as a Nika.
No less than 18 of the Imams agreed to the wedding which was despite the fact that the mother and brother investigators telling the Imams that the girl was opposed to the marriage and therefore being forced into the communion.
Among the Imam’s that agreed to the marriage were Khan Mishahi, at the Jamia Masjid Kanzul Mosque in Leeds.
The investigation has now raised more concerns on the underworld of Muslim activities and how many are refusing to comply with British laws but rather insisting that Sharia Law is the only law applicable to Muslims.
Campaign groups for the protection of children are furious at the Government’s ineptness to tackle the problem; often inciting ‘cultural sensitivity’ as a reason for not intervening and eradicating this problem.
It is not unusual for Muslims to openly mock British Laws and in fact Mohammed Shahid Akhtar, of the Central Jamia Mosque Ghamkol Sharif in Birmingham recently told reporters in response to a question that a 14 year old girl was opposed to being married off retorted:
“She’s 14. By sharia, grace of God, she’s legal to get married.
Obviously Islam has made it easy for us. There is nothing against that. We’re doing it because it’s OK through Islam.”
Mohammed Shahid Akhtar comments were nothing more than a direct affront to British law and the values British people hold regarding underage marriages and indeed lawful consent.
The investigation clearly uncovers that a high number of Muslims and indeed their religious leaders feel it is perfectly acceptable to abuse the rights of women and children who are seen as little more that chattel to be traded, used and abused by their male masters.
British law is openly being broken and yet ‘cultural sensitivity’ is being used as a weapon in order to prevent the authorities on taking positive action to prevent this crime.
It is of course not just the issue of underage marriages; under Sharia law a man may have up to four wives – again something that is illegal under British law.
There are a number of Muslim’s that have come out in defence of British law and have publicly stated that Sharia law cannot be applied in the UK as it is not recognized by the UK as being valid.
Our fear of being labeled racists and bigots has now culminated to the point where we are even prepared to allow underage girls to be forcefully married off – yes all in the name of political correctness, community cohesion and cultural sensitivity.
We have become blinded by our own ideologies and indoctrination that we must not, under any circumstances, speak out against any practice by Muslims as this will be seen as nothing more than a racial and bigoted attack on their culture, heritage and religious beliefs.
We must not forget that their beliefs are part of their culture and to consider otherwise would be bigoted. However, if a Muslim, cleric or otherwise, wishes to practice Islamic Sharia Law then they should do so within a country where such a law is permitted.
It is time the British public makes a stand and tells those involved in such practices that this is the United Kingdom not Saudi Arabia and that any person caught practicing a law that is not valid in the United Kingdom will be deported.
It may sound like a tough stance and even to some inhumane, but surely such a move would allow these people to live and reside in a country that is more attune to the religious beliefs and of course laws that fit in with their own ideologies and indoctrination.
It appears incredulous that we continue to vilify places such as Yemen for their practices of marrying off underage girls and yet we fail to tackle the very same problem right on our own doorstep for fear of being labeled racists or bigots – yes we really are beginning to scrap the bottom of the humanitarian barrel and all in the name of cultural sensitivity.
