Yemen: Eight Year-Old Girl Dies on her Wedding Night
Virtual Jerusalem ^ | 9/9/2013

Posted on 09/09/2013 4:12:24 PM PDT by Former Fetus

A girl of eight years old has died after suffering internal injuries on the night of her arranged marriage - to a man more than five times her age.

The young girl, named only as Rawan, died in the tribal region of Hardh in northwestern Yemen, according to the Kuwaiti newspaper Al Watan.

According to Gulf News, she died after suffering a tear to her genitals and due to severe bleeding.

There have been calls to arrest her family and husband, who was reportedly 40 years old, as activists demand an end to the practice of child marriages in the Middle East's poorest country.

Even some of those more sympathetic to prevailing cultural norms in the region voiced their disgust, with one blogger lamenting:

"Her family and her groom could have waited for some time before having this marriage. It was not fair at all and the marriage should not have happened even if some tribes believe that it is a good custom."

The issue of Yemeni child brides has gained growing prominence in recent years, amid international calls to end the practice. In July, the plight of one child bride-to-be made headlines after she recorded her dramatic escape from her family, along with a heartbreaking account of the struggle she and many girls like her regularly face.

According to the United Nations, one in nine girls in developing countries is married, often forcibly, by the age of 15. UN estimates state that if current trends continue, there will be approximately 14.2 million child brides by 2020.

Yemen is one of the worst offenders, where child marriages are seen as completely normal, the result of a combination of poverty, Islamic conservatism and a highly patriarchal society.

Tragically, though perhaps unsurprisingly, Yemen also has one of the highest rates of death at childbirth in the world.

Her mother and father should be hung, and the pedophile should be stoned to death.

These people are sick beyond belief.

The big Moho would be so proud.

Raping child brides is the Muslim way, as shown by their so-called Prophet.

And I'm sure under Islamic “law” the “husband” is within his “rights” if the child dies after being raped.

What a sickening, Satanic death cult.

They are not following Mohammed’s example... His favorite wife, Aisha, was 9 before they consummated their wedding when she was 6...

The fact that the prophet of Islam Muhammad married and raped a 6 year old girl proves that Islam is all lies, a false religion.

Islam came from the mouth of this terrorist named Muhammad.

hey liberals and muslims , you support a an evil perverted lie called Islam.

Christian Conservatism: "You should get married before you have children."

Islamic Conservatism: "You should get married to children."

Female genital mutilation (FGM) is wide spread in Islamic areas. This girl probably had type IV FGM which removes all the labia, clitoris, etc and then the wound is stitched up leaving only a small hole for urine and menses.

Due to the small hole, the opening is often enlarged with a knife by the “husband”. The Muslim honeymoon resorts often have soundproofed rooms for this act - wouldn’t want to disturb others, would Achmed?

Given the blood supply and the possibility of a clumsy knife weilding husband and a thrashing “bride”, that a girl bled out should come as no surprise.

Conclusion:
ISLAM DELENDA EST! - because of what Islam is and what Muslims do.
