This news is 5 days old. I was waiting for someone to make a discussion topic but I guess I had to do it myself afterall.

Article here: http://tundratabloids.com/2013/09/yemenite-rape-marriage-goes-bad-on-first-night-8-yr-old-succumbs-to-injuries-from-her-40-yr-old-pedophile-husband.html

Whats really scary about that article is the word sanction ,imagine a religion Islam that sanctions this behaviour,civilised. nations should refuse to do business with these disgusting examples of humanity ,and you still have people say Islam is a religion of peace and love

Maybe we should ask .....should we stop doing business with countries that support this practice

It's certainly wrong, but I don't know about not doing business with those countries.

Nothing to debate about. I just want to hear the opinions of CD

It's terrible enough that the child is forced to marry at such a young age, but this crosses the line!

It's adding injury to insult!

and ?

I looked into this from different sources, this case has yet to be confirmed but it is known that the poor in the Yemen do sell their children (not unlike poor people all over the world). Also this isn't sanctioned by the Muslim Church or State there are many leading clerics as well as the Minister For Human Rights calling for legislation minimum age for marriage stuff like that to try and combat child marriage.

Unfortunately there are also those who are against the legislation saying that a minimum age limit on marriage goes against traditional values (sounds a bit like the Christian excuse for Homophobia).

Hopefully the Yemeni government will get this sorted soon.

It is absolutely a disgrace how in this world a young person gets married to a old man even exists. I hope the men who do that to women should suffer something big and get a big punishment like death to the selfs !!!!

That's yet another example of Islam's harmful influence on the world.

Poor Girl.
