DID YOU KNOW THAT A THIRD OF THE YOUNG GIRLS ISLAM 42 COUNTRIES ARE FORCED INTO CHILD MARRIAGES?
What about sexual abuse of girls Islam and other abuses of women? Child marriage ruins the childhood and ordinary life experiences for many young girls islam. Many of these “brides” are still children, not even teenagers yet. Child brides don’t have access to education, have restricted relationships with friends and family, and this practice adds to the vicious cycle of poverty. Child brides are also subject to extreme domestic and sexual abuse, causing physical harm and dangerous pregnancies. Life’s choices are taken from them. The men they marry and the relatives of the husband make most of the choices for them. They become brood mares and are there to fulfill the sexual desires of their husbands. Many of these girls are married to polygamists and share a husband with other wives and are married to older or old men.
Because there is much abuse to women in some Muslim countries I am devoting this blog to cover the abuses of girls in Islam and woman unable to protect young girls. A little history first; In Islam, men are often permitted to marry multiple women or any age. This is due to the life of the Prophet Mohammed, who is said to have had 4 wives. This is supposedly the maximum number of wives permitted and men should be able to show they can support this number of wives or even little girls in Islam. Mohammed is said to have married one wife when she was nine. He did not consummate the marriage until she was twelve. Another report said the girl was six and the marriage consummated at nine. Because of Mohammed, most Muslim countries set the age of consent at twelve, while in Yemen girls of age 9 may be married with consent of the parents. It would be fair to say that in most Muslim schools women are regarded as being under a kind of guardianship or custody, first the fathers and then of their husbands. This defines most of the aspects of how men and women relate to each other.
It is said that only 10 to 15% of the men in Muslin countries have more than one wife. This is because most men cannot afford to have more than one wife, even though they would prefer to have more wives. Polygamy is practiced because there are more women than men due to wars and women living longer than men. This helps to take care of the surplus of women and keep them off the street. In monogamous countries it is considered a crime to have more than one wife, but it is okay to have mistresses. There are different positions on beating women in Islam. Some say that the Koran says, “Beat them meaning their wives?” The interpretation today is that regardless of the various positions and opinions, there is no permission established through the teachings in the Koran that it is okay to beat another person.
In the name of Islam, women are being abused and even mutilated. In Saudi Arabia women are not allowed to drive, to marry whom they want or to travel without written permission from a male guardian. In some countries female genital mutilation is allowed and in some countries “honor killings,” is allowed where a father kills a wife or daughter when it is believed that they dishonored the family. FGM is practiced in more than 30 countries. In Pakistan stoning to death is allowed and a woman is not allowed to testify on her own behalf as an accused woman. If a woman is raped she can be punished and she cannot defend herself.
In the search for identity, it is said that Islamic fundamentalism is a political movement, and not a religious movement. The issue is not Islam , but extreme fundamentalism, which uses Islam as a billy club. My thoughts are why don’t the good Muslims stand up against extremism? And I am told that they are afraid of being punished or killed by the extremists.
Muslim male extremists in western counties have been sexually enslaving children primarily Christian girls and girls Islam. In Rotherham, England a Muslim run sex ring was found responsible for the predation of 1400 young girls as young as eleven. They were plied with drugs before being passed around and sexually abused in cabs and kabob shops. This is said to be going on globally from girls Islam. The question begs an answer, if Muslim minorities have no fear of exploiting infidel women and children in western countries, how do they treat non-Muslim minorities, Christian woman and children in Muslim countries. This is in addition to buying young Muslim girls as wives or slaves to be passed around. Extremists consider non-Muslim women and children as the spoils of war. They have the right to take them as sex slaves.
In my next blog I will discuss the treatment of young girls Muslim and non-Muslim in the Muslim world.
