Islamic pedophilia

While the Chatholic Church is embroiled in a pedophile scandal all of its own making, the Islamic world shrugs its collective shoulders over its own. What’s in question here of course, is entrenched, Islamic sanctioned and subsequently institutionalized pedophilia that began with the founder of Islam. Mohamed. This has got to stop, and the only way to do it, is to highlight it as much as possible. KGS

Leading Muslim organization Nahdlatul Ulama declares underage marriage acceptable

Makassar. Taking Islamic law as its guide, leading Muslim organization Nahdlatul Ulama on Friday issued a fatwa declaring underage marriage acceptable as long as the purpose of the union was to build a happy family.
Cholil Nafis, secretary of the committee for religious issues for this past week’s 32nd NU congress, said the gathering had agreed that there should be no age restrictions on marriage because sacred Islamic verses or regulations had not stipulated a minimum age.
They can get married at any age, even girls who haven’t started menstruating,” he said. “And they can have intimate relationships and intercourse, as long as they are able.”
Cholil said Islamic law only suggested that marriages would be better after a woman had her first period.
“As long as the objectives of the marriage are positive, it is allowed,” Cholil said. “Mind you, we don’t encourage people just to get married to fulfill their desires, no,” he added.
NU was aware that some groups might disagree, he said. While NU looked at the issue from a religious point of view, others might focus on different aspects, such as human rights.
“If people disagree with our fatwa, so be it. We never force people to follow what we say.”
Cholil said an NU report mentioned underage marriages in some regions, but added that they were mostly traditional engagements between families who wanted their offspring to marry.
Under such a marriage, the minors are wed under Islamic law as if they were adults, but live separately with their families until they are judged mature enough to assume adult responsibilities
