Malaysia MP: 'Ok for rape victims to marry their rapists'

A Malaysian MP has drawn outrage for saying it can be OK for rapists to marry their victims and that some 12-year-old girls were "physically and spiritually" ready to get married.
Shabudin Yahaya from the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition said marriage could help victims "lead a better life".
Malaysia, a Muslim-majority country, has just passed a new law on sexual offences against children.
Despite opposition efforts, the law does not ban child marriages.
It remains legal for Muslims under 16 to get married in Malaysia under certain circumstances.
'Remedy to social problems'

Speaking during a parliamentary debate on the bill on Tuesday, Mr Shabudin said that although rape was considered a criminal offence, the rapist and the victim should both be "given a second chance to turn a new leaf".
"Perhaps through marriage they [the rape victim and rapist] can lead a healthier, better life. And the person who was raped will not necessarily have a bleak future.
"She will have a husband at least, and this could serve as a remedy to growing social problems," he said.



He also said some children were "physically and spiritually" ready for marriage.
"Some girls who are aged between 12 and 15 years have bodies like 18-year-old women," he said, citing his experience as a former Sharia court judge.
He later said his comments had been taken out of context, but that he opposed criminalising child marriages as they are a part of Islamic law, Reuters reports.
A 'worrying and dangerous trend'

In Malaysia, there has been an increasing emphasis on strict Islamic codes of conduct in recent years.
Sharmila Sekaran, chair of the Malaysia's Voice of the Children NGO, said the politician's words represented a "worrying trend" for young girls.
Child marriage in Malaysia

  • The official legal marrying age for Muslims in Malaysia is 16 for girls and 18 for boys.
  • But Muslim children younger than 16 can legally marry with permission from their parents and religious courts.
  • A UN report estimates that more than 9,000 child marriages took place in Malaysia in the past five years.
  • Most child marriages are believed to be in rural or traditional communities.
"You have politicians like him, giving voice to dangerous statements and backward views. It only serves to reinforce the view that rape is ok," Ms Sekaran told BBC News.
She described his argument that children could marry as "flawed and unsupported by any evidence".
"Sharia courts are full of divorces among young couples. There is a very, very high rate of divorce and re-marriage among couples in Malaysia."

And sharia rears its ugly face yet again...

Pedo paradise. Sharia says a girl becomes a woman at 9. Boy becomes a man at 16

A Malaysian lawmaker, Tasek Gelugor, has said that girls as young as nine were “physically and spiritually” ripe for marriage.

He said he rejected the motion to ban child marriages as it was contrary to provisions in sharia law.

It is not a terrible idea. Let them marry after the rapist does 15 to 20 in prison. This would cut down on a lot of these crimes.

Talk about multiculturalism: sounds like the Romans and their Sabine Wives.

The Sabine women were kidnapped and according to Livy, were not raped as we use the word today.
