Skip to comments.Bangladesh: Islamic cleric threatens jihad if child marriage is banned

Surely, Islamic apologists in the West will get right on the line to this guy and explain that, no, Aisha was 16, 18, didn't know how old she was, was only "nine" in Galapagos tortoise-years, or whatever other excuse they might cook up.
The problem? Islamic texts and traditions say otherwise, and Muslims follow them. Indeed, the heart of the problem is this: Muhammad did it. The example of Muhammad, "a beautiful pattern of conduct" according to Qur'an 33:21, cannot be set aside, or standards he set "updated," lest one imply Muhammad made a mistake. That would not only insult Muhammad (things seem to become flammable when that happens) but go against the Qur'an's endorsement of him, and therefore Allah's.
That is why child marriage persists in the Islamic world, from Nigeria to Yemen to Indonesia:
"The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with 'Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death)." -- Bukhari 7.62.88
"Islamist leader threatens of waging Jihad," from Weekly Blitz, April 20 (thanks to Weasel Zippers):
Notorious pro-Taliban Islamist clergy in Bangladesh, Mufti Fazlul Haque Amini has threatened to wage jihad in the country if the government will pass any law banning child marriage.

These Islamists are nothing more than disgusting pedophiles.
Next, caravan raiding and capturing women for sex (after sawing the heads off all the males.) WWMD?
Muhammad IS a mistake. “imply” is not strong enough.
Mohamed had 28 wives and his favorite was a six year old. This is some of the perversion the cult of Islam is founded upon. Islam will not stand. It shall be blown away in the coming storm of end times.
And we have sick people in this country attacking Terry Jones for burning a Koran....
Do not know what is scarier: Islamic Terrorists overseas....or their Phony Con supporters over here
These feral animals will find any excuse for Jihad. Attacks on Terry Jones are only supporting Islamic Terrorism

Isn’t there a university named after this guy? BRING’EM YOUNG.
Thanks Nachum. Makes me wish there were something to the global warming hoax.
There is apparently not even a pretense at an age of consent in Saudi Arabia.
Mo's first wife was a wealthy widow, who married him when he was a handsome-but-poor 25 year old and she was 40. She was his only wife until she died when Mo was 50 (and she was 65), possibly because she owned the assets.
I guess Mo's antics after the first wife died was his way of making up for lost time.
Islam will be gone before the tribulation.
For a woman there, there is no consent.
She marries whoever her father tells her to, at whatever age she is when he decides to marry her off. If she rejects the marriage, or is not a virgin at marriage (another reason to marry them off young, as non-virgins fetch much lower prices), then he can honor-kill her.
"A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed. A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man's four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl's sister."
How libertarian of the Ayatollah. lol.
And that is why this fundamentalism is so vicious. These terrorists will NEVER give up their ‘custom’...and it is why the fight will NOT stop.
It is brutal slavery for women
Well, the nice ones are, anyway...
Just wait ‘til he finds out he can’t have inter-species mistresses anymore.
