Britain: Nine year-old girls forced into marriage, but hey, it's what Muhammad did

30 girls between age 9 and 16 were forced to submit to rape in 2010, says The Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation.  This is just in one borough in England, there are many more unreported cases across the British Isle that are never reported.  This is the result of multiculturalism and unfettered immigration, coupled with a refusal to assimilate.  As sharia expands, so will the instance of 9 year-old girls being raped by 50 year old men.  

Coming to America any day now, this is Islam.

Islington girls forced into marriage at the age of nine

 AN alarming number of under-age girls – some as young as nine – are being forced into marriage in Islington, according to a leading campaign group.
The Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation (IKWRO) claim that at least 30 girls in the borough  were forced into marriage in 2010.
The practice was condemned by the Imam of Finsbury Park Mosque, who said such marriages were against Islam and “unacceptable”.
He pledged to invalidate any marriage which he said were carried out by “back-street Imams”.
IKWRO, which made headlines last month when they revealed there had been almost 3,000 “honour-based” violence cases in 2010, has shown the Tribune records which revealed at least three 11-year-old girls and two nine-year-olds had been forced into marriage with older men within Islington. The oldest girls involved were 16.
They have warned that hundreds of Islington girls could be suffering sexual, emotional and physical scars as a result of the child marriages every year and are calling for teachers, social workers and police to be better trained to spot and manage the abuse.
Information from the Ministry of Justice, following a Freedom of Information request, revealed that 32 Forced Marriage Protection Order applications were made for children under 16 in Britain last year.
Six of these were made for under-16s within Islington at the Royal Courts of Justice, although these were not necessarily made for Islington residents.
At the Islington court, “five or fewer” orders were made to protect children between the ages of 9-11.
The orders are a form of injunction that threaten legal punishment if marriage takes place due to emotional or physical force.
In most cases, the children fear they will be killed if they reveal the truth to anybody, while others believe they will be separated from their families and taken into social services’ care.
Dianna Nammi, director of IKWRO, explained that the girls are married in a mosque’s sharia court. This means they are not legally married according to British law, rendering the Home Office unable to recognise or prove the abuse.
“They are still expected to carry out their wifely duties, though, and that includes sleeping with their husband,” she said.
“They have to cook for them, wash their clothes, everything. They are still attending schools in Islington, struggling to do their primary school homework, and at the same time being practically raped by a middle-aged man regularly and being abused by their families. So they are a wife, but in a primary school uniform.
Uh, there is no "practically" about it, a 30something man having sex with a 9 year old, or 13 year old is rape, plain and simple.
“The reason it doesn’t get out is because they are too terrified to speak out, and also the control their families have over them is impossible to imagine if you’re not going through it. The way it is covered up is so precise, almost unspeakable.”
Ms Nammi said that one 13-year-old had to sneak out of a maths lesson to contact the group, because she was being monitored so closely by her family.
“Her teacher didn’t notice because she said she’d gone to the toilet, but when she got home that day she was beaten,” she said.
“Her father knew she hadn’t been in maths because he had sent an uncle to spy on who she was talking to through the classroom window.”
Ms Nammi said that the girls are married off to family friends or family members to stop them from losing their virginity to anyone not chosen by their father.
However, the incentive is also often financial.
“The girl automatically becomes her husband’s property, so he takes financial responsibility for her,” said Ms Nammi.
“In fact, often the husband has to start contributing to the girl’s family, so it becomes a way of bringing in another salary.
“Who are girls going to tell? Often they feel like teachers at school won’t understand what their families are like. They will think they’re like Western families, and won’t understand that if they pass on anything at all that they’ve been told to the family, then the girl will be killed. So they just chose not to tell at all.”
IKWRO offers counselling and support to the children, but does not force them to take any action until they are ready. Often, that involves being placed in social services’ care.
Finsbury Park Mosque imam Ahmed Saad said he was glad the issue was being highlighted, and stressed that it was not an Islamic problem, but a cultural one.
Islam is both religion and culture, they are one in the same, therefore the problem is Islamic.
“This is down to ignorance, and ignorant people who will use any excuse they can to do this to their children,” he said.
It is the practice in their home countries and they don’t want to stop that here, so they will say it’s in the Koran, when it is not. According to Islam, it is entirely unacceptable.
Saad is right, it is not in the Qur'an.  It is in the hadiths of Muhammad (5.58.234) and makes no bones about the age of Aisha being 6 at the wedding and 9 at the honeymoon.
My own grandmother was married at the age of 11, but that was in 1907 in Egypt when lifespans were much shorter."
In 1907 Islam was dominating religious and social life as much, or more than  today; lifespan and timeline mean little when following the dictates of Muhammad and Islam.

Do you really think age of consent was always 18 years old?

Hehe. Ignorance is bliss for the Islamphobe, eh?

Refute if you can.

I never said I believed the age of consent was always 18, I point out that since Muhammad is "al-insan al-kamil" or the perfect man, who's behavior is to be emulated for all time, by all Muslims, and when he married Aisha at age 6, and then consummated when she was age 9, that is the example Muslims follow. When Muslim men today use this example for their own perverted uses, it is time to ask serious questions about Islamic doctrine and it's role in a Muslims behavior. It is not Islamophobic to want to stop the abuse of little girls (both rape and FGM) and stand up for their rights to grow up as they please, not under some sweaty Muslim male who uses them for his own carnal pleasures.
Why are 91% of honor killings happening in Islamic countries? Why are virtually all the rapes reported in Norway done by Muslim men against Scandinavian women? Why do Muslim girls in Egypt (up to a reported 80%) still suffer from FGM?

There is nothing honorable about a religion which inculcates violence against women as part of their societal structure. See 4-34 or 4-3 for more clarification.
