Britain's Underage Muslim Marriage Epidemic ( Islamic Sharia law )
Gatestone Institute ^ | October 15, 2013 | Soeren Kern

Posted on 10/15/2013 9:47:43 AM PDT by george76

"Forced marriage is probably the last form of slavery in the UK." — Nazir Afzal, Chief Crown Prosecutor for Northwest England.

More than a dozen Muslim clerics at some of the biggest mosques in Britain have been caught on camera agreeing to marry off girls as young as 14.

Undercover reporters filming a documentary about the prevalence of forced and underage marriage in Britain for the television program ITV Exposure secretly recorded 18 Muslim imams agreeing to perform an Islamic marriage, known as a nikah, between a 14-year-old girl and an older man.

Campaigners against forced marriage -- which is not yet a crime in Britain -- say thousands of underage girls -- including some under the age of five -- are being forced to marry against their will in Muslim nikahs every year, and that the examples exposed by the documentary represent just "the tip of the iceberg."

The documentary, entitled "Forced to Marry," was first broadcast on October 9 and involves two reporters posing as the mother and brother of a 14-year-old girl to be married to an older man. The reporters contacted 56 mosques across Britain and asked clerics to perform a nikah. The imams were specifically told that the "bride" did not consent to the marriage to an older man from London.

Although the legal age for marriage in Britain is 16, according to Islamic Sharia law girls can marry once they reach puberty. The imams who agreed to marry the girl openly mocked the legitimacy of British law, reflecting the rise of a parallel Islamic legal system in Britain.

...

why Britain is taking so long to outlaw forced marriage involves multicultural sensitivities. Many promoters of British multiculturalism say the move to criminalize forced marriage will unfairly single out Muslims

When he died his 18 yearold wife was probably publicly raped and stoned, because he died.

Muslims are going to do what Muslims are going to do. Who is shipping them into Britain and who is protecting the Muslims from the native Britons and their laws?

Thanks for your post. I know you were educating me and others who might see your post but, unfortunately, I need to take a shower now.

Hmmmmm, I have an activity that is repulsive, criminal and evil, yet because only one ethnicity performs it I have to allow it?

So if I found that only black men raped white women I'd have to allow it to continue so as to not single out black men?

Or I find that homosexual men are the only ones who rape young boys I have to allow it to continue to avoid singling them out?

Or if I found that only white tenage girls shoplift I'd have to allow them to continue shoplifting rather than single them out?

Since when did enforcing the law become a matter of not hurting anyone's feelings?

If people are upset because they are being singled out then MAYBE, just maybe they should stop doing the acts that get them singled out in the first place.

I’m starting to think Islam is the anti-christ. For some reason the world is bowing down and allowing it to take over.

>> Campaigners against forced marriage — which is not yet a crime in Britain

A crime, or not recognized?

I imagine the outcome of this “forced marriage” is child endangerment, likely abuse charges, fraud, kidnapping, and related conspiracy charges.

Easy solution, if they have the will. Marriages below age of consent, or where bride did not consent, are void. Charge “husband” with statutory rape. Jail and\or deport.

“she could have put a muslim on the throne when she married Dodi Fayed “

I am not sure the throne would have passed through her as she was not in line.

Cannot, rule of succession.

Also, some of us (some of us who are even British!) do not share the hatred for Charles many do on this site. One well known freeper is in fact a personal friend of the Prince. And I personally have met the Prince, and found him to be a charming and highly intelligent individual who cares deeply about his country and his people. And who btw is also very fond of your country and its people.

All this Charles-Muslim nonsense is just that, nonsense.

Between the high levels of homosexuality or pedophiles Islam doesn’t have much going well for them.

For some reason the world is bowing down and allowing it to take over.

To a certain extent, we are about to re-enter and re-live the Crusades period. The Crusades were about Muslim armies swarming Europe trying to force people to convert to Islam.

Today, they have a much more modern approach to forcing people to convert - they call it "terrorism"!! /sarc

I find the subject of first cousin marriage to be a fascinating dilemma for the NHS— Pakistanis, for instance marry first cousins for half of total marriages, and have done so for a thousand years! The health consequences are very dire.

"Nikah", that's on odd spelling for a word that's clearly pronounced RAPE.

I just read this article about some American Muslims who were in Mecca to worship that giant rock that got attacked,

“During the attack, the men reportedly shouted “Our [holy pilgrimage] will be complete once we have killed you, ripped out your hearts and eaten them, and [then] raped your women.”

Meanwhile the local police stood by and laughed. I wonder if the victims were lead to question their faith.

If anything, it probably strengthened their resolve. Feral animals.
