Good news!

I can finally publish some good news on this blog!

Remember the saudi 12 year old girl who was sold to an 80 year old man?

She has been freed!

It is all over the internet!

The girl was 11 when she was wed against her wishes to her father’s cousin last year in an arranged marriage in her hometown of Buraidah, near the Saudi capital of Riyadh, the Telegraph reported Thursday. Her father was paid a $23,350 dowry.

She has won the court case with the help of her lawyer nd the human right commission. She got her freedom from a life as the ”wife” of a man who could be her great-grand-father!
I suppose the father won’t have to pay her purchase price back, as I suppose the old geezer has already violated her, and the dowry in Islamic marriage is the money paid for sexual access.

The human rights commission of saudi arabia was established by king Abdullah in 2005. They said it would use this case to attempt to establish a minimum age for marriage of 16. Comprising medical experts, child psychologists, social workers and scholars in Islamic law, three committees have been set up to debate the matter, the London Times reported.

“The main aim is to not allow cases like this to happen again,” Alanoud al-Hejailan, a lawyer with Human Rights Commission, told the Times. “There will be some opposition, of course, but we feel that public opinion has changed on this issue. We want to gather all the public support we can for a minimum age for marriage.”

The excuse for marrying underage girls to old men is based on the unreliable narration in the hadith which states that Aïsha was 9 years old when the prophet married her. While he was an old man.
There is much historical data which disproves this single hadith. I have copied an article from an other blogger (with permission) which you can read on the page ”The true age of hazrat Aïscha”
In January,  Sheikh Abdullah al-Manie, a senior Saudi cleric, said Muhammad’s 14th-century marriage could not be used as justification for today’s child marriages, the Indian Express reported.

Will the age of marriage for girls be regulated to a more reasonable age?
(As if 16 is not far too young as well)
Sure, I suppose at the same time that women will be allowed to drive…

Death by marriage

Posted in child abuse,child bride,Islam,rape,religion,The Evil that Men do,women by Save the Women! on April 14, 2010

There is another tragic news item, this time the yemeni ”husband” of a 12 year young girl raped her to death.
She died three days after her marriage of internal bleeding of the ruptures to her body caused by the inhumane ”consumation” of her sexual slavery marriage.

The girl was married to a man at least twice her age, said Sigrid Kaag, UNICEF regional director for the Middle East and North Africa.
Her death is “a painful reminder of the risks girls face when they are married too soon,” Kaag said Thursday.

Amal Basha, chairwoman of the Sisters Arab Forum for Human Rights, a Yemeni human rights group, identified the girl Friday as Elham Mahdi.  “Elham was married on March 29th and died three days later” and lived in Yemen’s Hajjah province, Basha said.

The husband, complaining he could not ”consumate” the marriage asked a medical facility to tranquillise the girl so she could no longer resist his advances. They refused. He is reported to have tied her down. After which he was able to  rape her.  He took her to the clinic the next day because she was unable to walk.

Dr. Fathiya Haidar, a doctor at the clinic, told the Associated Press that she had suffered significant injury and “I told him not to go near her for at least ten days.” Elham may have been raped again after this clinic visit, as a post-mortem forensics examination showed much more extensive injury than what was reported by the clinic.

Rape and infection with hepatitis B

Posted in child abuse,child bride,Islam,rape,religion,The Evil that Men do,women by Save the Women! on April 13, 2010

And all perfectely halal and according to Allah’s wishes as I have been told by some very sick people.
Usually men, who, I suppose, don’t want their own chances diminished when it is their turn, as old, sick riddled with std’s pedophiles to buy and rape little girls.

Are there parents who would want their little girl to be raped and infected with an std?

Yes, apparently such parents exist.

Woman suffering from livercancer due to Hepatitis B

In Saudi Arabia hospital staff were shocked when a 65 year old man with hepatitis b wanted tests done (compulsory in KSA) so he could marry an eleven year old little girl! The parents were anxious to get the tests done as soon as possible, so they could deliver their little girl into the hands of an diseased pedophile to be raped and infected with a deadly disease.

Hepatitis B is a sexually transmitted virus which causes cancers.
To willingly and knowingly infect a very young girl, of eleven with this fate is tantamount to murder.
A slow death by cancer.

One wonders how much the old sick pedophile man paid for the privilege of raping a child and infecting her with his deadly std.

One wonders how sick the rulers and religious elite of a country like Saudi Arabia are to not only allow, but positively encourage an outrage, a crime like this.

I can’t tell you how utterly disgusted I am by hearing about these outrages, again, and again, and again.

We must not underestimate the fact that these outrages are reported in the papers though. In a country like Saudi Arabia such matters can only be reported if the ”powers up high” allow this to be reported.

And I think that the majority of the Saudi people are disgusted by this.
And while much has been said of ”change needing to come from within”,  This is rather difficult in a country like saudi arabia. Where political parties are forbidden, where people who are disliked by ”somebody high up” can just disappear. I think that a change in the ”people high up” will be much more effective in making a change for the good.
