Afghan Government Defends Right to Marry Children

The Afghan government refuses to outlaw child-marriage, because such a ruling would violate Sharia. Since Bill Cosby says we should strive to be more like Muslims, I wonder if he thinks the U.S. should make child-marriage legal.

Washington Times—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.

The me President Hamid Karzai reportedly supported the measures, but opponents said they “violate[d] Islamic principles,” Breitbart reported.

The me The failure of parliament to act in accordance with Mr. Karzai highlights a deep rift among the nation’s politicians. And it comes at a time when elections are set for April 2014 for a new president.

The me There is “a rift between conservative and more secular members of the community,” Sky News reported. (Source)
