8 year-old seeks divorce!

This from the Yemen Times:

SANA’A, April 9 - An eight-year-old girl decided last week to go the Sana’a West Court to prosecute her father, who forced her to marry a 30-year-old man.Nojoud Muhammed Nasser arrived at court by herself on Wednesday, April 2, looking for a judge to handle her case against her father, Muhammed Nasser, who forced her two months ago to marry Faez Ali Thamer, a man 22 years her senior.

The child also asked for a divorce, accusing her husband of sexual and domestic abuse. According to Yemeni law, Nojoud cannot prosecute, as she is underage. However, court judge Muhammed Al-Qathi heard her complaint and subsequently ordered the arrests of both her father and husband.

“My father beat me and told me that I must marry this man, and if I did not, I would be raped and no law and no sheikh in this country would help me. I refused but I couldn’t stop the marriage,” Nojoud Nasser told the Yemen Times. “I asked and begged my mother, father, and aunt to help me to get divorced. They answered, ‘We can do nothing. If you want you can go to court by yourself.’ So this is what I have done,” she said.

Nasser said that she was exposed to sexual abuse and domestic violence by her husband. “He used to do bad things to me, and I had no idea as to what a marriage is. I would run from one room to another in order to escape, but in the end he would catch me and beat me and then continued to do what he wanted. I cried so much but no one listened to me. One day I ran away from him and came to the court and talked to them.”

Well, she's a brave and intelligent little girl, but what a society. And we're importing millions from that societry into Europe every year.

Wow! You are very geinus. How could you find such article in Yeman times? Its so great to see some body is telling truth. Oh come on, it is Muslim so you have to portrait that as big zoom lens. Haven’t you heard or see the local paddy land news paper recently. What about that Teenage girl who is having sex in broad day light with three men at the same time. Oh its ok to have underage sex we are CIVILISED. And the girl is from so called Socially deprived. Two words for you

Racist Prick!!

Glad to recognise that I'm 'very genius'. Let this genius then explain to you that the Irish girl engaged in 3 way sex voluntarily. The Yemeni child, remember, 8 years old, was FORCED into a pedophile arrangement, masquerading as a marriage. Which is ok with Muslims I suppose as the 'Prophet' was himself a pedophile.

Jezz! you even Islamic Phobia as well. good on ya! Keep up! 15 year having sex in broad light like animals is called "Volunteerism". Is this new kind Volunteerism for Celtic tigers? We never heard "Catholic" abuse in church. We even never heard Jews massacre by Christians or Spanish Inquisition. We even didn’t heard “Slavery”. We never heard of oppressing aboriginal people. Native American massacre in both continents by European Christians. List goes on and continues as time pass by. May be you could give or support these crimes with some fancy name. All these crimes against committed by European Christens so do you call Christianity is bad religion If a group of people belong to specific religion did bad things does not mean the whole religion is wrong. On that case (see above list)..

There is no such thing “Perfect Religion” and “Perfect Society”. Every religion is misinterpreted, fought wars and unleashed abuse. Show me one perfect Religion and show me perfect society.

Grow up!!

You obvioulsy haven't been reading my posts on religion. I've acknowledged all these things and furthermore that Christianity gave up its power only when forced to.

Religion to me is truly the opium of the masses, but if you want to take opium without bothering the rest of us, that's ok with me.

The difference with Islam is that it forces itself not only on its own adherents (presumably you know, then again, maybe not, that leaving Islam means death?) but on the rest of society as well.

Finally, i dont approve of what that girl did, and the fact that it was in public makes it an offence. But the big distinction, which seems to be eluding you, is that all of this was voluntary.

is justanotherday for real?

“My father beat me and told me that I must marry this man, and if I did not, I would be raped and no law and no sheikh in this country would help me. I refused but I couldn’t stop the marriage"

And he equates this to a 15 year old having sex with 3 guys. He's warped. Or maybe just a Muslim.

Jesus Christ! Is this guy nuts? he thinks a teenager giving a blow job is worse than an 8 year old being sold off to a paedophile.

what a mind.

JustAnotherDay said...

Oh i am sorry i have totally misunderstood, as Annonymous2 equates

A 15 girl shaging 3 men under broad day light in Celtic Tiger forgetton back yard is nothing but Blowjob. May be you need proper sex education or you have to read the news papers not just "English Football" and Page 3 tities i guess!

Shite happens everywhere we aint saints there is no need to projecting other religion mistakes with big convex lens. Charity starts at home first clean up Christian Religion first then put fingers on other
religions later.

I end with my argument with Well at least there is no Peadaphile parties like in EU in Yeaman anyway.

Dutch will allow paedophile group

So what do you call that?? Does it Dutch Christian all Peadaphiles??

SAVANT said...

justanotherday: I dont agree we need to clean up Christianity. It has little direct control now. Don't know why you go on so much about this 15 year-old girl. At least she had a choice. In an Islamic country she'd presumably be stoned to death. Unless of course she was, er, married, like that poor 8 year old in Yemen.

Why would they need a paedophile party in Yemen? Their religion permits it!

JustAnotherDay said...

It has nothing wrong Christianity as proven by Austrian

If you take one example in the world to bash one religion may be i should follow your path to let you know you are again wrong.

- peace

justanother day really doesnt get it. He thinks that because something happens in the West it means we approve. This Austrian guy will go to jail where he belongs. Thats because it's against our laws - unlike in Islamic countries.

There is a new article about an 8-year-old being forced into marriage with a 50-year -old in Saudi. These children have sex way too early and bear children before their bodies have developed. Anyone who condones such archaic practices, irregardless of religion is an animal, lower than an animal because animals don't know any better. Humans do. How can you have sex with something that small and defenceless and then claim that she was your "wife"? Does she look like she's ready to be anybody's wife? Doesn't she have the right to play like a child and not wake up in fear of being raped by an overgrown ogre?
