A revert muslim, Ana, has stated repeatedly that she considers child marriages islamic. She says a child is ready to marry as soon as she has her menses, if she is 5, 6 or seven years old doesn’t matter. According to Ana, marrying a child is islamic if she only has had her menses and having sexual intercourse with her is islamic as soon as the nikah has been performed.
Ana hence approves of 50, 60 and 70 year old men marrying little children, girls aged 5 or 6 and she claims it is islamic for these men to have sex with their brides:
That a child is not ready to have children even if she has her menses at age 6 doesn’t matter to Ana. That a child might not be able to understand what marriage means, that a child might not want to marry an 80 year old man, that a 7 year old might not dare oppose her parents’ wish to marry her off to an old sheik is of no importance to Ana.
That children die from giving birth, that children die from internal bleeding after having been raped by their “husbands” is of no importance to Ana. An 80 year old man marrying a 5 year old girl and having sex with her is islamic according to Ana.
This means Ana is condoning murder. It is her, and people like her, who make sure the traditions allowing child marriages survive. It is religious fanatics like her who make sure it is impossible to change the laws that allow child marriages.
It is Ana, and people like her, who murder children like this 8 year old girl who died after her wedding night, from internal injuries after having been defiled by her +40 year old husband. Every person who defends the right of old men to marry children is a murderer, and bears the responsibility of these girls’ deaths.
This little girl could have been saved by a law preventing child marriages, but as you can see such a law was prevented by conservative muslims who claim that a law to that effect would be unislamic.
The blood of this child is on them. Her death is on them. On them and on everybody who claims that god wants men to marry baby girls and have sex with them.
