Afghan Parliament Upholds Child Marriages, Sex Slavery, And Criminal Charges For Rape Victims

Passing the measure would have been contrary to Islamic principles.

Afghanistan's parliament has rejected a measure that would have barred men from marrying girls younger than 16, saying the proposal ran counter to Islamic ideology.

The measure also would have banned "baad, [the] traditional practice of buying or selling women to settle disputes," and outlawed criminal charges being imposed on rape victims, Breitbart reported. Rape victims in Afghanistan often are charged with fornication or adultery.

This is a religion that Western Muslims (mostly converts) insist honors women. Strange how these converts, especially female, never want to live under the draconian laws of Sharia. Yet, by supporting Sharia from a safe distance, they have condemned millions of women and children to a life of suffering and abuse, all in the name of Allah.
